The Benefits of a Tiled Conservatory Roof Replacement
Conservatories are a fantastic addition to any home, adding value, space and flexibility to a property. However, they are not without their problems. The most common complaint from conservatory owners is the difficulty in regulating temperatures. Often warm in the summer and cold in the winter they can increase your energy bills during the cold months and feel like a sauna on hot summer’s days. Thankfully, help is at hand. In this post, we take a look at the many benefits of a tiled conservatory roof. The simple solution to converting your troublesome conservatory into a comfortable part of your home all year-round.
Enjoy Your Conservatory 365 Days A Year
Switching from your old polycarbonate roof to a tiled roof will allow you to use your conservatory in all seasons. Lightweight conservatory roof replacements can be retrofitted onto your existing frame. They have an incredible U-Value of just 0.18 which means very little heat is lost and you won’t have to turn the thermostat up to max when you want to enjoy your conservatory.
Reduced Energy Bills & A Better Environmental Option
In a standard home, 25% of all heat loss is through the roof, even in properties with good levels of insulation. In a conservatory, this figure is significantly higher. The standard polycarbonate roofs, found in most conservatories, are ineffective when it comes to retaining heat. As we all know, heat rises and so when your heating a conservatory most of the warmth is heading straight out of the roof.
As we’ve mentioned above a tiled conservatory roof replacement has an extremely low U-Value. The U-Value measures the amount of heat lost through a structure — the lower the U-Value, the less heat that is being lost. When more heat is retained less energy is required to heat your home. This means lower bills, and it reduces your environmental impact.
No More Summer Sauna
Another of the big benefits of a tiled conservatory roof is their ability to moderate the temperature in summer. Polycarbonate roofs allow the sun to stream into the conservatory which can make it unbearably hot. A solid roof doesn’t allow the sun through creating a more even and enjoyable temperature.
Spending time in your conservatory when it’s raining isn’t typically very pleasant due to the noise. Even light rain can sound like there is a marching band on your roof. When you want to relax its the last thing you want. Even though a replacement conservatory roof is lightweight they absorb the sound very much like the roof on your house does. No longer will you have to retreat inside when the heavens open.
The Benefits of a Tiled Conservatory Roof Summary
