Conservatory too hot or too cold?


Sun Room are now designing Conservatory Roof Insulation in England. The best solution if your conservatory is too hot or too cold.

Conservatories makes a amazing addition to the property, and permits you to enjoy the outdoors while staying indoors, yet their standard polycarbonate or glass roof means that they are either too hot or light in the summer and too cold in the winter for every-day use. To combat this problem, Sun-Room can offer you two different but effective solutions...

lower VAT rate of 5%. A reduced fee of VAT applies to the positioning work itself as well as the materials – saving you a considerable amount of money. Reference: HMRC

Which solution is right for you, Sun-Room or Equinox?

Deciding which system is best suited to you will depend on the following factors...


The Sun-Room Ceiling is fitted to the underside of your current ceiling. This means that from the exterior, there will be very little difference in terms of appearance. On the inside your conservatory will be totally clad with uPVC panels with a tongue and groove effect. The Equinox product on the other hand replaces the present conservatory roof with a new tiled roof and a plastered interior. You are sure to be pleased with either system.

Time to Install

Both the Sun-Room Ceiling and the Guardian Roof are quick to install. Here at Sun-Room England, we can install a Sun-Room Ceiling within 24 hours and the Equinox Roof should be completely installed and plastered within 3 - 5 days. 


Due to the materials used, the manufacturing and installation steps and the guarantee given, there is a large difference in cost between the two structures.  A Sun-Room Ceiling will work out at around a fifth of the price when compared to a Equinox Roof.

Insulation Values

Both systems have great insulating properties. A Sun-Room Ceiling uses insulation with a U-value of 0.175

Bespoke Designs

A Sun-Room Ceiling allows you to keep current roof vents and if needed, some of your ceiling can be left open to let in extra light. A Guardian Roof allows for the installation of roof vents, as well as the fitting of spotlights where necessary.

Enjoy the outdoors, all from the comfort and warmth of home, but standard polycarbonate or glass roofs means that conservatories are too hot or bright in the summer and too cold in the winter for every day use.

This is our original insulated conservatory ceiling brought to the industry by us in 2010. Originally designed in-house, we have now installed more than 1000 Sun-Room ceilings. This process necessitates insulating the underside of your original conservatory roof and then positioning a hollow uPVC cladding with a tongue and groove effect...
