3 Ways To Prepare Your Home For Winter

The unpredictability of the weather in this country makes it difficult to anticipate what type of winter will be in store for us all.

Replacement Windows Winter

It’s definitely best to prepare for the worst as you will undoubtedly spend more time inside your home over the coming months than you would in the middle of summer.

So that you enjoy the warmest of winters, there are several measures you can take to create consistently cosy home living.

Energy Efficient Windows & Doors

The Energy Saving Trust claims that in an uninsulated home, 20% of heat loss occurs through the windows and doors.

Single glazing isn’t an effective insulator and is responsible for much of the cold that makes some home interiors so chilly.

Double glazed windows and doors are an absolute necessity in the present day as they’re far better at utilising and retaining the warmth produced by your boiler. When your finances allow, you should consider upgrading to triple glazing for even greater insulation than double glazing.

Investing in double or triple glazing will also slash the cost of your heating bills – you can expect to save a fortune over the years.

Conservatory or Orangery

There are plenty opportunities for celebrations at home throughout the winter – Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas and New Year.

The installation of a conservatory or orangery will give you a dedicated setting for such occasions that you can suitably style and accessorise.

Both types of home extension promise the most comfortable surroundings, no matter what the weather is doing outside.

The added space they bring will give you the opportunity to play host and invite more people around to embrace such events together.

Solid Roof

You may already be fortunate enough to own a conservatory or orangery, but get very little chance to use it in winter due to the poor insulation it provides.

Rather than let it sit empty when it should be a hive of activity, replace the existing roof covering with a solid roof.

Available in lightweight slates or tiles and various finishes, a solid roof can be integrated into the existing structure within just a few hours as it is prefabricated off-site.

Once it has been successfully fitted, your conservatory or orangery will be better protected from the elements and provide the perfect winter retreat.
