6 Ways to Keep Your Conservatory Warm in Winter

During the summer months, your conservatory is the perfect place to enjoy those blue skies. When winter rolls around, we rarely appreciate the room’s chilly attributes. But why should a conservatory go neglected over the winter period?

Conservatories are such wonderfully versatile rooms and can be transformed into the central hub of the festivities, providing you keep your guests warm.

Below are 6 of our top tips on how to keep a conservatory warm this winter.

Buy A Heater

This may not seem revolutionary, but many people seem to neglect the thought of traditional heaters for a conservatory. Perhaps this is because there may not be space or perhaps some have already accepted they will not use their conservatory over winter.

Heaters warm a room up quickly and as they are isolated, you can choose to power just the one room instead of your whole home. Therefore, saving energy and heating bills.

There is now an extensive selection of heaters on the market to fit any style, budget and space. From wall-mounted, remote-controlled, traditional and sleek and modern. You will certainly be able to find something to suit your room.

Change Your Flooring

As the largest surface area in the room, a floor can often feel very chilly. You most likely have tiles or similar and these are infamous for making our toes cold. The ideal solution is to install underfloor heating, which will swiftly turn this brisk canvas into a pleasant area.

However, we do not all have the budget or time to have this changed, so what is an affordable alternative?

Adding a rug to your conservatory can make a real impact. They help to insulate the room while creating a toasty barrier between that hard floor and your feet.

Check For Leaks

Over time, the seals on your conservatory windows and doors can erode and leave gaps. As small as these may seem, even the tiniest hole can let in a draught and quickly pull the temperature down.

If your means allow, have a professional re-fit or replace windows and doors. If not, you can purchase a DIY sealant from most hardware stores for around £10-£20.

By ensuring all leaks are sealed, you will instantly feel a huge difference in your conservatory.

Install Curtains or Blinds

Curtains and blinds can immediately warm your conservatory up and are often an overlooked option. They negate heat transfer and can even help to reduce energy bills.

Make sure you leave these open during the day to allow as much sunlight and heat into your conservatory. Once it begins to get dark, close them to trap as much heat in as possible.

Choose The Right Glass

There are so many options now when it comes to the type of glass used in your conservatory. If your room is a little out-dated, it may be time to replace the ceiling and windows.

Consider investing in glass, rather than the old polycarbonate glass. This works as a much better insulator. It is also more weather-resistant, perfect for the treacherous elements we experience in winter.

If you are not in a position to do so, you can install solar inserts to your polycarbonate roof, this reduces heat-loss without the expense of replacing the glass.

Throw On A Throw

Sometimes just preventing heat from escaping is not enough to keep you warm in your conservatory. Blankets and throws can make a huge difference and having them readily available in the room can make it more appealing to the family.

Not only can you accessorise the room and change these easily each season to match current trends, but it can also make a big difference to your furniture.

If you have leather or rattan furniture, you’ll be aware of how cold they can become as the season turns. Blankets are not just for sitting under, but sitting on them can protect you from chilly chairs.
