Conservatories work well on the north or east-face of a property, but south and west facing conservatories can get intense sun in summer. To maximise year-round comfort, it's vital to control the temperature and light inside. With glass roofs and walls, heat loss is an issue, so use low-emissivity glass that reflects heat out when it's hot, and in when it's cold. It's important to ventilate the roof either electronically with heat sensors, or mechanically with a hand-winder that opens air vents. Motorised blinds, shutters or lightsensitive glass will keep glaring sun away. Blinds from a good-quality supplier, such as Grants Blinds, are well worth the investment if you really want to use the space.
