Having an extra room on your property is fantastic, especially if it’s well-insulated so you can use it all year round. Unfortunately, many conservatories were built using outdated materials which are not able to keep heat in well enough during the winter or prevent hot air from being pushed out of the structure during the summer. This is a big problem because the conservatory becomes an unusable space for a large portion of the year and means you’re spending more on energy bills than you need to be.
Luckily, there are a few different solutions available that you can use to fix this problem. In this article, we will look at conservatory roof insulation panels, which can be fitted to your existing polycarbonate or glass conservatory roof to improve its thermal performance. This will help to make your conservatory a more usable space 365 days of the year, reduce your heating costs and even save you money on cooling bills.
Conservatory Insulation Panels
One of the most common types of conservatory roof insulation is a simple sheet of insulated material that’s placed directly on the conservatory roof. These sheets are able to be installed with a minimal amount of fuss and can often be done by yourself if you’re feeling confident. They are a relatively inexpensive option, too, so you can easily see your energy bills decrease while making your conservatory much more comfortable to spend time in all year round.
If you’re looking for a more complete solution, then you may want to consider replacing your conservatory roof altogether with a fully-insulated replacement conservatory roof. These systems will be a perfect fit for any sized conservatory and can be built to suit your home’s specifications, including the shape, size and glazing bars you already have in place. The uPVC roof systems we offer are foil backed and are designed to provide premier conservatory insulation. They are a great alternative to the clip in insulated panels because they have multiple layers of insulation and also include vapour control.
They are made from a combination of materials that includes extruded polystyrene (XPS) core sandwiched between aluminium laminated skins. This produces a sturdy and long-lasting product that’s incredibly durable, lightweight, water resistant and offers superior heat resistance. It’s also highly sustainable and a good choice for your new conservatory as it is 100% recyclable.
The EcoQuilt Expert is a particularly popular choice because it’s able to reflect away excess and unwanted heat during the summer, reducing your energy bills and eliminating the need for artificial cooling systems. Its built in vapour control layer will also eliminate the need for condensation control, helping to preserve your conservatory and keeping it warmer for longer.
This is a highly efficient product that’s ideal for any conservatory with existing polycarbonate or glass panels. It can be installed with minimal disruption and is designed to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible, which makes it a great fit for most homes.
