Keep Your Conservatory Warm
Choosing to build a conservatory is an investment that is usable all year round allowing conservatory heating in winter and keeping cool in summer. Glass conservatories in the UK can be a real pleasure as glass is a good conductor of warmth and brings summer sun right into the room. But this also means that in winter it works in the reverse and the glass can drive the warmth out of the conservatory, leaving it cold and unpleasant.
But this is not a lost cause and you don't have to spend a fortune to keep your conservatory warm in winter. There are rather simple glass solutions that can control the temperature of your conservatory. For example an energy saving glass such as Pilkington Activ™ Self-cleaning Glass can be used on the inner pane of glass with Solar Control glass, such as Pilkington Activ™ Blue, as the outer pane.
Benefits of Double Glazing in Glass Conservatories
Double glazing is fast becoming a standard feature in UK houses and is an ideal way to keep a conservatory warm. The sliver of air or gas between the two sheets of glass has great insulating effects. By using your glass to keep warm air inside your conservatory, you are cutting the costs of heating while also being environment friendly.
The thickness of the double glazing glass also reduces the outside noise, while also increasing its strength and durability - this means your conservatory glass is harder to break in the event of an accident or vandalism.
Conservatory Heating With Self-cleaning Glass
Why not consider Pilkington Activ™ or Pilkington Activ™ Blue, the revolutionary glass that uses the power of nature to clean itself in a two step process? This innovative new glass concept means that not only do you not have to worry about keeping your conservatory warm, you also don't have to be constantly cleaning.
