Getting The Most Out Of Your Conservatory During Summer

23 June 2021

The weather is heating up quick here in the UK and though restrictions are still in place, there’s nothing stopping you from relaxing in your conservatory and enjoying the sunshine.

That is, until the extension on your home becomes so unbearably hot that you’re almost certain that you’re baking in an oven. The reason this happens isn’t terribly common knowledge. Those of us with conservatories seem to just wave off any concerns because it’s how the room has always been. But there is a way to keep your conservatory cooler and it starts by understanding why it’s getting so hot in the first place.

Why conservatories get hot

Think about your conservatory at home. An open space, likely several large windows and a glass ceiling, or potentially an almost entirely glass structure... All those windows let in an enormous amount of natural light during the day. With that light, comes heat from the sun. With no way for the heat to escape the room, it just keeps raising the temperature until it becomes an unbearable hot box and there’s no way to use the room.

Cooling down a conservatory

Without a doubt, there are a number of ways to cool down a conservatory during a hot day. Sure, you could use an electric fan or three, perhaps you could install air conditioning in that room or buy a portable air conditioner that you only turn on when someone is using the extension.

Other quick ways to cool down your conservatory include putting up blinds to stop the light from entering the room or adding specialist conservatory cooling film to the glass of your conservatory. But these may detract from the stunning views of your garden on a warm summer’s day, so surely there’s another solution...?

Replacement Conservatory Roof
