Thinking of a Conservatory?

Written by | Return to Latest News

Adding a conservatory or glazed extension to your home can be one of the best ways of adding value to your property, not just in terms of monetary value, but also in terms of how much it enhances your home. A well-built and comfortably furnished conservatory provides a wonderful living space, which you’ll want to spend a lot of time enjoying, but what’s the best type of conservatory for you?
At Turkingtons we are well versed in handling our conservatory systems, which means we are able to tailor your options to suit your property. No matter the size or style of your home, you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of a market-leading conservatory system. This includes unrivalled standards of thermal efficiency, security, thermal efficiency and durability. It’s never been easier to enjoy the very best in your home.

What Style of Conservatory?

In many ways, the style of your home can determine the type of conservatory, orangery or glazed extension you should go for. If your home is Victorian, Georgian, or Edwardian for instance, a more traditional style conservatory will look better. In fact, a bespoke conservatory designed to match the existing property should look as if it’s always been there!

Will it be Warm Enough?

Whether your home is modern, traditional, period, heritage or new build, thermal efficiency will still stand as an important factor in ensuring you remain comfortable. Heightened heat retention can also play a factor in allowing you to warm your property in an economic and environmentally friendly way. Our conservatories are designed to offer your more across the board, so you won’t have to settle for anything less.
Because the heat from your heaters or central heating will remain in your home for a longer period of time, you will need to use them less frequently. This could result in a lower heating cost and carbon footprint across the course of the year. When this standard is combined with our super insulated columns, which are five times more thermally efficient than brick, you could find yourself saving even more.
Always go for double glazing, as well as glass with low-emissivity. These offer the right balance between letting sunlight in during the day, and reflecting radiator heat back into the room when it gets cooler outside. Older or poorly designed conservatories can often suffer from an ‘oven’ or ‘freezer’ effect that makes them uncomfortable and sometimes unusable in the summer and winter months. Modern innovations allow us to bypass this factor.
Other practical decisions can also relate to the internal pelmet, an option for your conservatory interior that enables you to capture a beautiful, ‘room-like’ feel that can be complemented with a range of lighting and speaker options
