How to Keep Your Conservatory Warm This Winter

When it comes to space for entertaining, unwinding, relaxing, and soaking up the sun, there’s no place like a conservatory. However, many homeowners are understandably deterred from adding one to their home thanks to the fear of not being able to enjoy their conservatory during the cold winter months.

Luckily, it’s easy to winterproof your conservatory to reduce heat loss, so you’re not only able to use the addition to your home when it’s cold, but you’re also reducing your energy bills by preventing heat loss – a win-win situation. Whether you’re interested in buying a conservatory, or you’re looking to winterproof one you may already have, keep reading to find out the best ways to keep your conservatory warm during winter.

Replace the Roof

If you have a conservatory and notice that you struggle to keep it warm when it’s cold outside, the most likely cause is probably the roof – conservatory roofs are one of the biggest areas of heat loss in the home. The best way that you can drastically reduce the amount of heat escaping, and cold getting in, is by completely replacing the entire conservatory roof. Of course, swapping your existing conservatory roof for a new one isn’t a quick DIY job, but luckily we offer a complete conservatory roof replacement service.

Choosing the Right Conservatory Roof

There are a few different types of solid conservatory roofs available; slate or tiled. These solid roofs completely replace traditional glass and polycarbonate roof types – taking dated, unusable conservatories and transforming them into year-round living spaces that add value to your home.

When you’re trying to heat-proof your conservatory, you should also consider:

Double and Triple-Glazed Windows

If you’re thinking about adding a conservatory onto your home, considering double or even triple-glazed windows will help dramatically reduce heat loss. It’s also worth replacing all of the windows if you have an older conservatory with single-glazing, as this will be a major source of heat loss. Double and triple-glazed windows are also great for reducing unwanted noise, as the two or three panes of glass slow down the rate at which sound passes through – so if you live near a busy road or have noisy neighbours you’ll find you can barely hear them.

Blinds and Curtains

You might think that blinds and curtains are just for keeping the sun out, but they’re also a great way to keep the heat in. When you’re choosing blinds and curtains for your conservatory, don’t just get distracted by the bold patterns and colours, keep an eye out for ones with materials or features specifically designed for heat retention.


Another common source of heat loss in conservatories is through the floor. If you find your conservatory unbearable during the winter, think about upgrading the existing flooring to something warmer and cosier, such as a thick carpet. If you’ve got a bigger budget and don’t mind slightly higher heating bills, underfloor heating is a great choice – you’ll feel like you’re living in luxury as you enjoy the winter sun from the comfort of your cosy conservatory.

Conservatories are a wonderfully versatile space that can be used as living areas, dining rooms, playrooms and more, so it’s a huge shame that so many are underused because they’re so cold during winter. If you have a chilly conservatory or are considering adding one to your home, consider the points above to make sure that space is a cosy haven in the colder months.
