Roof Vents for Conservatories

Conservatory Roof Vents

Let hot air out in order to cool the room quickly and efficiently...

Roof vents are basically small panels that are built into the roof of your conservatory, and open upwards to let hot air out in order to cool the room quickly and efficiently. They are a quick and easy way to ventilate your conservatory. Because the roof will be the first area to catch the sun’s heat, it is essential that you combat the effects of this on warmer days. You can achieve this by being able to open vents to keep the temperature inside your conservatory much cooler.

Benefits of Conservatory Roof vents

Option to have vents which are operated by remote control...

We had manual roof vents fitted as standard with our conservatory to aid the ventilation on hot days...Mr Daniels...Southampton

They come in two options – the more basic design has a pole which allows you to reach the vent for easy opening. The more advanced – and arguably much better – option is to have vents which are operated by remote control. This enables you to open them easily without even getting up from your chair, all of which makes them ideal for people who are elderly or infirm. Having plenty of roof vents enables you to get rid of hot air very quickly. Hot air naturally rises and so opening the vents will allow it to escape, leaving your conservatory a much more pleasant environment to sit in.

Roof Vent Disadvantages

Once built you cannot add more vents to the conservatory design...

It is well worth having your roof vents fitted by a qualified and experienced person. If they are not installed correctly they can have a tendency to leak, which not only means your conservatory will no longer be weather tight, it may also cause irreparable damage to your furnishings andconservatory floor. It’s also vital to realise that because they are built into the roof of your conservatory, once it is built you cannot add more vents to the design. You must make sure therefore that you have got enough vents in your roof to fully ventilate your conservatory before the building process starts.

  • Remote Control Option.
  • Aids Ventilation.

In short, although there are plenty of options for cooling your conservatory, the simple process of making sure you have plenty of roof vents will ensure you can quickly and easily get rid of any hot air which tends to build up. They will add to the cost of your conservatory, but this is one cost which is absolutely essential, so make sure you don’t try and cut corners here.
