Conservatory Roof Material to Reduce Heat Loss and Too Much Generate Heat


Postby Lindricklad » Wed Jan 29, 2014 6:28 pm

I plan to upgrade and extend my bungalow this year and this will include a new conservatory. Since this will be south facing I am rather concerned about the heat generated in there (and also restricting the heat loss at other times !).
Currently the bungalow roof is of a 'pyramid' shape but needs retiling, so I intend to add a new apex shape at the rear of the property to which the conservatory will be attached.
A further complication is that the conservatory will sit in front of a small sitting room, so I need to provide sufficient light to that room.
I plan to provide the conservatory with a gable end of glass and I am considering the feasibility of using metal or wooden tiles for the roof, rather than glass - although I may well include glass portals on either side of the apex roof to help illuminate the sitting room.
Any thoughts/comments/advice would be much appreciated, particularly from anyone who has installed a tiled structure.

instead of tiling the roof try Pilkington active glass, its high efficient glass that reacts to the environment, so its cool in the summer and retains heat in the summer, Used it many times its very impressive
