How do I stop my conservatory overheating?

Project type

  • Conservatory
Save to list

Solar gain (overheating) is a common problem in conservatories and can be reduced by:

  • Limiting the size and area of glazing such as doors and windows.

  • Shading or orientating doors and windows from direct sunlight. A south facing conservatory will get hotter than a north facing one.

  • Using reflective materials on the glass and building fabric.

  • Using window vents, fans and blinds which can be automatically operated via temperature sensors.

  • Installing special glazing, for example solar glazing or heat reflective glass.
