Keep Your Conservatory Cool

In the summer months, conservatories can prove to be a spectacular feature in your home. They can give you the luxury of a controlled environment, filled with light, warmth and comfort. But sometimes the temperature can get a little out of control and you find that your conservatory can become more like a sauna!

Your Conservatory Cooling Options

Standard methods of conservatory cooling include:

  • Conservatory blinds - There are many beautiful designs for conservatories on the market. But surely using blinds to keep the sunlight out of a conservatory on sunny days defeats the whole point?
  • Air conditioning - Air conditioning is an ideal way of maintaining a certain temperature in a room, but between installation and electricity costs, is it really worth installing for those few hot days each year?

Another way to keep a conservatory cool is to look to the source of the problem - the glass. Pilkington has developed an energy efficient glass especially for conservatories, called Pilkington Activ™ Blue.

Pilkington Activ™ Blue - the Energy Efficient Glass

Pilkington Activ™ Blue targets two of the main problems that people have when it comes to glass conservatories. Firstly, it has a Solar Control feature to help keep your conservatory cool. This function manages the amount of sun that comes into a conservatory so that it maintains a comfortable temperature.

Secondly, Pilkington Activ™ Blue is also a revolutionary Self-cleaning glass. It uses the daylight to break down dirt and then rainwater washes it away in a sheeting action that reduces streaking.

Discover the benefits of Pilkington Activ™ Blue, an energy efficient glass that will save you both money and time.
