Whether we like it or not, the English weather is wholly unpredictable and so, while the last of the snow and ice is slowly melting away and the days are beginning to draw out a little longer, chances are you’ll still be putting your central heating on for a few more months yet.
Installing a conservatory or an orangery might not immediately spring to mind when brainstorming ways to avoid steep energy bills but it may surprise you that it is a proven way to help keep your home warm during the cooler weather – without the use of heating!
At Walkers Windows all the glass we fit is A-Rated and super energy efficient so adding extra space with a conservatory will not only give you more room but actually aid in keeping out the cold (and any sneaky draughts that might try and sneak into your home too!) Our double-glazed products consist of two sheets of glass. Between the two panes of glass there is a gap that is filled with argon gas which creates an insulating barrier to help keep the heat in and the cold out. This technology means that all our products achieve the most energy-efficient rating, awarded by the BFRC. Further more, the glass we use in our roofs is specially developed for a low U-value and reflection of solar heat – so, if you’re worried about how useable your new room will be in summer, don’t. All our glass works just as hard to keep the heat out in summer and it does to keep in it during winter!
Still not convinced? Alongside our fantastic double glazing products we also ensure that all external walls of your new conservatory or orangery are full insulated and there’s even an option to have a tiled roof. The Tiled Warm Roof System has been designed to provide a high performance thermal solution with zero condensation risk over the life of the roof. The high performance roof offers substantial energy cost savings over a glass or Polycarb roof, it is achieved with a lightweight frame, two layers of rigid insulation board, internal insulated plasterboard, exterior grade plywood, vapour membrane and a choice of external tile finishes. In short; there will really be no need for the heating once your new space is complete!
There’s a brilliant range of conservatories and orangeries to choose from and no matter which you decide on, it will be manufactured exactly how you want it and be completely bespoke to your home!
