Tip 1. Fix Those Conservatory Faults

Tip 2. Diminish Those Draughts!

Another easily addressed problem with keeping conservatories warm is draughts. Firstly, ensure that your doors and windows are airtight and draft-proof and that no cold air is getting through from the outside. Hot air gravitates towards the colder areas of your conservatory, so if you have draughts present, you could be losing money on heating through draughts!

Tip 3. The Guardian Warm Roof – All-year-round protection from the elements.

Whilst keeping warm in winter is paramount for those wanting to utilise their conservatory in all weathers; so is keeping cool in the summer. A huge amount of conservatory temperature woes stem from the roof, so ensuring you invest in the best conservatory roof solution should be a priority. So, with that in mind, introducing the innovative and stylish Guardian Warm Roof.

This market-leading roof system can really transform your conservatory into a year-round living space. Available for both new builds and as a replacement for your current conservatory, and is a lightweight, sold, and economical alternative to the more traditional roofing types.

Tip 4. Window Dressings

Drapes such as curtains and blinds are not only designed for privacy and aesthetics, but they can also help with controlling the temperature. Thick and heavy blinds can negate heat transfer in conservatories. Get the best out of your blinds by ensuring that they are opened in the daytime to allow any sunlight in , and close them in the evening to trap hot air and prevent it from escaping.

Tip 5. Choose the Right Flooring

Our feet are often the first indicators of cold temperatures, so considering the right flooring for your conservatory can help keep it warm in the winter. Two of the most popular are:-

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring in conservatories has always been a popular choice, not only is this type of flooring cost-effective and easy to fit, but it is suitable for underfloor heating should you have it. Often, conservatories can have numerous doorways, laminate flooring can be much more manageable in comparison to carpets for this. You can also add rugs to make it even warmer, cosier, and of course, more attractive.


Carpet can help the wrath level in conservatories by holding heat, there are also great options for underlay to further insulate by heat absorbance. There are some other interesting things to consider with carpets such as, light coloured carpets absorb less heat, and of course thinner carpets keep cooler than thicker ones.
