Conservatories are the perfect way to add space and light to your home, but all that glass brings its own problems. Sadly, it seems that many people end up not using their conservatories at all because, as one owner puts it, “It is too cold in the winter and like a sauna in summer.”

If you suffer from any of the following problems – there is a solution.

  • My conservatory gets unbearably hot in summer
  • The glare is a real problem when trying to watch the TV
  • My conservatory is too cold in winter and costs a fortune to heat.
  • I have concerns about my privacy when in my conservatory

The Causes

The biggest cause of glare, heat loss and overheating is primarily the conservatory roof, followed by the conservatory side windows and doors. Even the latest hi-tech glass, which can significantly reduce heat gain and glare in summer isn’t always enough, and it doesn’t address the problem of heat loss during the winter months.
Thankfully all of these problems can be overcome with the installation of custom made conservatory roof and side blinds from an expert blind supplier.
