Tips & Tricks for a More Energy Efficient Conservatory This Winter

Conservatories, they’re a great social space for any home, bringing family and friends together. However, these days many older conservatories aren’t living up to what they used to be. The material used to construct the conservatories has changed over the past decade to ensure they’re as energy-efficient as possible. 

Conservatories were originally designed to provide your home with that outside space inside your home. Whilst they were a great idea at first, they soon became uninhabitable in the chilly winter months and scorching in those warmer summer months. However, nowadays, we are able to provide you with a conservatory that works all year round.

We understand that upgrading your conservatory can cost a lot, especially when splashing the cash on heating your conservatory in the winter. So, we are here to help you make your conservatory more energy efficient for this winter, without spending too much hard-earned cash.

Short-Term Solutions 

Create a Cosy Environment

Whilst this has no actual impact on the energy efficiency of your conservatory, you can create that perfect “cosy night in” environment. By filling your conservatory with comfy sofas, fluffy throughs and lots of cushions. Why not even light a few candles or pop a few fairy lights to really create that cosy environment? A rug is also a great way to help keep the warmth in the winter months, preferably a fluffy rug. 

Heated Blankets 

Heated blankets are a great option for those who wish to enjoy the space of their conservatory this winter. Providing warmth when needed and keeping you and others nice and toasty. They’re available online at most retailers and come in very handy. 

Long-Term Solutions

Blinds & Curtains
