Though most likely not the top item on your to-do list, thinking about replacing your conservatory’s roof could bring you plenty of joy in the long-run. Fitted to be airtight, stylish, and highly heat retentive, if you’ve ever found yourself too cold or uncomfortable when stepping out into your extended living space, this could be the solution. Cutting heat loss means cutting bills and we at Albion thought we’d explain just how!
Improved insulation to save on heating bills
Especially ideal for residents still suffering from the woes brought with an original polycarbonate roof, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear that it’s hard to warm up your conservatory. This roofing style has been vastly improved on since the days of the initial conservatory installation boom, with the likes of glazed, tiled, and solid roof types achieving lower U-value levels, being the chosen unit of measurement for testing how effective a material is at insulating.
Even with our standard tiled roof replacements, homeowners will be able to enjoy unrivalled thermal performance with U-values of just 0.16. This is well below the industry standard and exceeds those determined by UK Building Regulations. Once installed, any natural heat will be successfully locked into the space, reducing the need to warm the space artificially and reducing heating bills as a result. Over enough time, the original cost of the replacement will more than pay for itself.
Equipped to balance conservatory temperatures all year round
Another annoyance present with polycarbonate high quality roof replacements can help you overcome, is the inconsistency of room temperature. In addition to the roof itself, ensuring a comfortable temperature throughout the year also comes down to using the right glazing. If correctly selected, your roof windows and surrounding glazing can provide up to 50% heat reflection to illuminate the space successfully while assuring that it never suffers from being too hot.
Don’t lose a quarter of home heat any longer!
The energy saving trust estimates that a staggering 25% of heat is lost through the roof of an uninsulated home, recommending such solutions as loft insulation to combat this. Unsurprisingly, this isn’t possible when working with a conservatory or orangery, thereby making it essential to have the most airtight and defensive conservatory roof possible fitted onto your extension.
A roof replacement for every property style with Albion
Needless to say, if you’re looking to save money with your conservatory roof, the ideal option might be to replace rather than repair. The heat loss prevention benefits alone assured that you’ll save potential hundreds on bills year upon year, meaning it’s only a matter of time before the replacement pays for itself then will continue to see you save money.
