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).

The best con­ser­va­tory is one that matches the pe­riod and style of your home so it doesn’t look out of place. Call SAS Daniels LLP So­lic­i­tors on 0161 475 7676 or 01625 442 100.
