Michael Holmes, property expert for the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show, provided his advice on building a conservatory to withstand all weather conditions.
Adding underfloor heating and air conditioning can do much to make a conservatory more comfortable year-round, but it’s more effective and ecologically sustainable to invest in design solutions that will make the climate easier to control by reducing heat gain on sunny days and preventing warmth escaping when it’s cold. Adding thermal blinds can achieve both of these aims in very effectively.
Getting the conservatory design right in the first instance is the best approach, avoiding due south orientation to limit solar gain, or at least using planting to provide screening where a south-facing wall is the only location option.
