How to keep a conservatory cool

12th Aug 2022

It is lovely when the sun comes out and temperatures rise. We fling open our doors and windows to enjoy the fresh breeze but the flies and insects that come in can be so annoying. During the hottest days, conservatories can become uncomfortable to sit in both because of heat build-up but also glare from the sun. Conservatories are now often fitted with solar glazing and solar shading to help reduce the heat build-up but often the best way to cool conservatories is to open the doors and windows.

Our range of DIY fly screens are designed to perfectly match white uPVC conservatories and can be used on the doors or windows you open most. Made to measure, they stick onto your door or window and the cassette frame forms a complete seal so there are no gaps around the edges where insects can enter. The retractable design means when not in use they can be retracted out of sight. When you want to use them, simply open your door or window, pull the mesh across or down and the screens lock into place.

The conservatory will then start to cool down through natural ventilation and the insect mesh also blocks up to 55% UV rays as well as keeping bugs and other garden debris outside. The perfect balance between outdoor living and indoor comfort.

So you get maximum insect protection whilst cooling and refreshing your entire house we offer multi-buy fly screen bundles to make it as cost-effective as possible. Save up to 25% with our multi-screen offers - click here for more details.

To see if our screens are suitable for you, follow the measuring guides and place your order online.

Reclaim your conservatory for summer and enjoy the fresh air without the annoying flies and wasps.
