Although the days are getting shorter, winter still seems like a long way off. It’s never too early to start preparing your conservatory for colder weather, though: here are five things you can do to ensure that it’s a perfect retreat, even in the winter months.
Install Insulating Curtain Liners
Make sure your conservatory curtains are keeping heat in, rather than letting it out, by backing them with special insulating liners. This will keep the room cosy and save money on central heating bills too.
Check Your Windows
Are your conservatory windows double glazed? Double glazing is vital for keeping heat in, and your windows need to be in tip-top condition for the winter. Ensure there are no cracks or damaged seals to stop heat from escaping this winter.
Switch to a Sentinel Solid Roof
This timber constructed roof offers incredible insulation, and eliminates all risk of condensation. It’s weatherproof under an hour after installation – contact us to find out more.
Opt for Carpets
While tiled, wooden and marble floors all look good and stay lovely and cool when needed in the summer, they’re not the best materials for retaining heat in the winter. Choosing to lay a carpet will not only keep heat in when the temperature is low, but it’ll keep your feet toasty and warm, too.
Install a Radiator
In the summer, the conservatory is the warmest room in the house. By installing a radiator, you can keep it that way in winter too. It’s important, though, to ensure that your conservatory is fully insulated first, or you’ll waste a lot of money on your central heating bills.
