west-facing one will be cooler in the morning and hotter towards the end of the day. Conservatories that face north should get angled sun first and last thing, so won’t overheat on hot days, but they can be really cold.
A south-facing conservatory makes the best sun trap and will get extremely warm on a hot day. most of your investment.
Portable heaters aren’t a good long-term measure and while extending the central heating system into the conservatory may not be cheap, powerful radiators are one way to counter all that glass when it’s cold.
Electric underfloor heating can be a great solution, as it provides a nice warm floor with an even warmth that radiates upwards.
It’s also ideal if there’s little or no room for radiators. LIKE anything, there are different styles of conservatory, from more ornate period-style ones to plainer, more contemporary ones.
UPVC conservatories are typically white or wood effect – they’re affordable and require little maintenance.
Conservatories made of aluminium are really strong, durable and versatile, but expensive.
Wooden conservatories are costly, too, and require more maintenance than UPVC and aluminium, but they are natural and environmentally friendly (as long as the wood is sustainably sourced).
