Conservatory Roof Replacement
As the cold weather rears its head to spring, it’s the perfect time to make energy efficient upgrades to your home. As the warmer months approach, it’s often easy to forget about winter. However, by being proactive during the spring and summer, you can effectively lower your bills next winter. Not only can these improvements help you save money on your bills, but they also contribute to a more sustainable and eco-friendlier lifestyle. 
With energy bills remaining high in the UK, homeowners are looking for any way to make their homes more energy efficient. But with so many options, it can be hard to know where to start. From energy efficient replacements to small changes to your daily routine, a lot can be done to improve your homes energy efficiency. 

Install energy efficient Windows and doors 

Your windows play a crucial role in your home’s energy efficiency. Upgrading your old uPVC windows can help reduce heat loss dramatically. uPVC windows are effective at reducing the transfer of heat from outside to inside your home. Your windows may be especially old, or you may have noticed they’re not performing as effectively as they should be. If this is the case, it may be time to consider an upgrade. 
It’s not just your old windows that can cause heat loss. Your doors can also be a cause for heat loss in your home. By being proactive now, you will be saving yourself of heat loss and high energy bills during the winter months.

Seal any gaps or cracks 

We understand that installing new windows or doors isn’t in everyones budget. But there are smaller steps you can take to reduce the heat loss you’re experiencing from your windows and doors. Make sure to look for any gaps or cracks in the windows and doors of your home. These can be a big contributor to heat loss or cool air loss. Weather tripping or sealing these gaps with caulk can make a big difference to your homes energy efficiency. 

Solid roof conservatories 

Conservatory roof replacements have become a great option for homeowners looking to update their conservatory’s style, while also improving their homes energy efficiency. 
Solid conservatory roofs provide great insulation, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This is because they’re made of materials such as tile or slate, which provide good thermal insulation. 
Spring and summer are the most ideal times to be doing big home improvements. Such as replacing your old polycarbonate or glass conservatory roof with a solid one. Scheduling your conservatory roof replacement for the spring will help to avoid any weather delays experienced in the winter. This will mean that the project will be completed quicker, causing minimal disruption. 

Landscaping for energy efficiency 

Believe it or not, the temperature in your home can also be improved during winter and summer by strategically planting trees and plants surrounding your property. Enough of these will help to block winter winds that force your heating system to run for longer. 
This is also beneficial in the summer months. Just as your home can become cold due to wind, it can also become too hot due to the sun. With the protection of a canopy of shade from trees, your home will remain cooler in the summer. Keep in mind this will only work if you plant trees strategically, placing them in the direction of the sun in relation to your home.
