Lacking comfort in your conservatory? It’s time for an Equinox solid conservatory roof
If you had a conservatory installed a few years ago, or you moved into a house with glass roof conservatory, you may well have found it’s not the ideal sun lounge you were expecting. Why? Because, as many people have discovered, a glass conservatory roof (or a polycarbonate one, as it is in most cases) is very good at letting heat in when the sun’s shining. And just as good at letting heat out when it’s cold. As a result, the summer sun rapidly builds up the temperature inside your conservatory until it’s too hot to enjoy in comfort. While in the winter, you simply can’t keep your conservatory warm however high you turn the heating because it all disappears through those thin conservatory roof panels.
Equinox brings solid roof insulation to your conservatory
The answer to this ‘Goldilocks Problem’ – too hot, too cold, but hardly ever just right – is above your head. In a new, solid conservatory roof replacement that includes proper insulation, just like the roof on your house, to control the temperature in your conservatory so it’s ‘just right’ the whole year around.

Insulating you from higher energy bills
The key to all the extra comfort and convenience an Equinox roof brings to your conservatory is in its insulating roof panels. It’s what’s known in the industry as a ‘Warm Roof’ design – one that keeps heat in right up to the ceiling apex so the whole space stays cosy and warm.
It’s reckoned a solid conservatory roof is up 15 times better at keeping heat in than a 16mm polycarbonate or an old glass conservatory roof. And while it might be very slim, giving you more overall space and height to enjoy, the highly efficient conservatory roof insulation we use in Equinox is among the most effective on the market. In fact, it has a u-value of just 0.15. Or, to put it another way, it’s around 10 times more energy efficient than an A-rated double glazed window.
