Is the hot weather making parts of your house a no-go area?

Too hot in the conservatory…

Summer’s here. And it’s very, very hot!

The sun is out and it should be the ideal time to make the most of your conservatory.

But it’s just way too hot — basically it’s too uncomfortable to relax and make the most of the weather.

So — what do you do?

There are several approaches you can take to tackle this problem, a few listed below:


You can have tailor-made blinds fitted. These can add a touch of elegance to the room, are adjustable to suit the conditions and are good at cutting out the daylight. No surprise really — it’s pretty much what they’re designed for! 


High quality bespoke blinds are expensive to produce and fit. 

They do look good — but depending on the weather — they may have to be fully pulled down to work efficiently (which means you don’t get to enjoy the view) or worse, they need constant adjustment to maintain the desired result.

Air Conditioning

A professionally installed system — or even a decent portable unit — can radically reduce the heat and control the climate to the point of perfection.


It’s costly to run and can be an upheaval to install. They are also noisy — even the quiet ones. And they don’t deal with the aspect of glare at all. 


All that glass. And it seemed like such a good idea to have a beautiful fully glazed roof too. But when the sun beats down the heat and glare are magnified there is respite.

Re-roofing replaces the glass with other traditional roofing materials that don’t let the light through.


It sort of ruins the idea of a ‘glazed’ natural daylight room. And what’s the point of a conservatory if you’re going to block out the view?

Window Film

Hi-tech window film, professionally installed, is virtually invisible, reduces heat and glare by up to 80% and cuts out harmful UV rays (which can damage fabrics and make furnishings fade) by up to 99%!

It’s relatively quick and simple to install, lasts for years, is easy to clean and maintain and can even add safety, security, and privacy to your home* 


Window film costs on average less than 25% of the cost of installing blinds — and can be even more economical when compared to installing Air-Con.

So that’s basically a 75% saving — and not only does it cost much less, it’s also the simplest, most effective, and unobtrusive solution.
