Conservatories are an impressive addition to any home and provide a great extra space throughout the year, as well as raising the value of your property. However, conservatories can also be one of the most common causes of heat loss as 25% of heat in the home is lost through the roof. The better insulated your conservatory is, the less warmth and energy your property will lose – saving you money and maintaining a comfortable temperature whatever the weather!
If your conservatory is not properly insulated, there are steps you can take to make your conservatory warmer this Christmas.
Insulate Your Conservatory Roof
The older your existing conservatory is, the more likely you are to have a polycarbonate roof. Unfortunately, this plastic material offers very little insulation to your property and is likely a huge contributing factor in lowering the temperature in your conservatory. The best solution is to have your conservatory roof professionally insulated.
Professional conservatory roof insulation helps your conservatory retain heat and increase its energy-efficiency. At Rundle and Dorey we have over 20 years’ experience in the conservatory insulation industry, providing high-quality solutions to customers throughout the UK.

Other Steps You Can Take Today
In addition to conservatory roof insulation, there are some other practical steps you can take to keep your conservatory warm this winter season. So, we thought we’d mention some of our top recommendations.
Check Your Conservatory for Draughts
There is not much point in working to make your conservatory warmer if all the heat is escaping through a gap or crack. Whilst most houses tend to be fully insulated, many conservatories are prone to losing warm air through their glass walls and ceilings. So, even if you placed a heater in your conservatory in an attempt to warm it up, chances are it would have very little effect on the overall temperature of the roof and you’d just be burning through money anyway. Ensuring your doors and windows are properly sealed this winter can have a significant effect on the overall efficiency of your conservatory.
Install Window Shutters
One of the most popular methods for regulating temperature in conservatories is to install window shutters. These do an excellent job of stopping hot air escaping and can help to reduce your heating bill. Shutters work to insulate your conservatory by providing a barrier between the interior and the exterior, helping your conservatory stay warm and cosy even if the weather outside is cold.
Another great thing about shutters is that they can be opened on hot summer days to make the most of available heat and warm up the space. To help retain heat even more during the cold in the winter, it is also worth placing throws and blankets on the furniture to help take the cold edge off these surfaces. This is particularly helpful for cold furniture items such as leather chairs and sofas, helping to keep that winter chill away.
Change Up Your Flooring
The type of flooring you have in your conservatory can have a significant effect on the energy efficiency of your conservatory. If you really had the time and the money, you could opt for having underfloor heating installed to keep your toes warm during the winter. Having the right flooring type will help insulate your conservatory space effectively.
You can combat the problem of cold flooring in your conservatory by adding rugs or carpets to cover cold floor tiles. The solution to the problem really does depend on your budget. You can install anything from full carpet to large rugs. Both flooring solutions will help add a feeling of warmth.
Consider Electric Radiators in Your Space
If your conservatory is cold, no matter what the weather is like outside, electric heating is definitely a good consideration. Electric radiators are definitely the safest and most cost-effective solution when it comes to electrically heating your space. Not only are electric radiators efficient, but they also help maintain a comfortable temperature in your conservatory without breaking your budget.
Install Double Glazing in Your Conservatory
Double glazing installation can make all the difference to the energy-efficiency of your conservatory. With winter here already and Christmas right around the corner, double glazing is a must when it comes to maintaining a warm and inviting temperature.
Double glazing works to reduce heat loss in your property by preventing warm air from escaping and cool air from entering. And because double glazing works so well to insulate your property, there is no need to crank up the heating and pay out huge amounts on your energy bills.
Improve Your Conservatory This Christmas
Christmas is right around the corner and insulating your conservatory in time means you have more space to enjoy with family and friends this festive season. Here’s a quick recap of the best ways to make your conservatory warmer this Christmas:
- Insulate your conservatory ceiling
