Conservatories don’t have to cost the earth.
It’s no longer a theory that the earth is warming up, we can see it for ourselves. Fast melting ice caps, warmer winters and hot summers; year round hose pipe bans; and a bumper crop of grapes in the UK have all hit the headlines recently.
With diminishing natural resources and increasing concerns over global warming, it’s important to choose products that are environmentally friendly.
Choosing a uPVC conservatory doesn’t have to cost the earth, in fact because it can be thermally enhanced, low maintenance, and long lasting, you’ll be surprised to know:
By using higher thermally efficient Double Glazing and polycarbonate, heat loss can be reduced so you produce lower carbon emissions and benefit by lower fuel bills. You can save trees by using a rot-free alternative to wood. And, unlike wood that needs constant maintenance, uPVC just needs soapy water.
By using special low emissivity (low-E) glass in your conservatory you can use your conservatory without additional heating for more days in the year. Low-E Double glazing is designed to reflect heat back into your conservatory, maximising the use of available heat from the sun. Compared to standard glass, low-E glass installed in your conservatory enables you to save on your heating bills by using less power to keep your conservatory warm. This keeps your conservatory warmer, meaning you can run your heating system for a shorter period and still remain as comfortable.
Low-E glass prevents more heat escaping through the window than standard glass. It’s energy saving coating allows the sun’s rays through, but also reflects warmth from fires and radiators back into the home. The greater insulation offered by Low-E makes the inner pane of a window much warmer. This eliminates cold spots and increases the amount of usable floor area.
