We may be nearing the end of winter but with storms such as Doris hitting the UK and no end to winter’s grim grey skies in sight, it’s no wonder many of us experience the winter blues to some degree. A survey conducted in 2013 found that 83% of women and 74% of men said the shorter days had a negative impact on their mood. While 37% of women and 28% of men also said that the lack of daylight made them spend more time indoors than during the summer months.
If winter means you and other family members end up spending more time indoors, then this is the season when your conservatory can come into its own. After all, your conservatory windows make the most of the available light outside. However, while the windows may be inviting you to take in that cup of coffee, book or even invite friends to join you, is the temperature causing you to retreat back into the house? However, there’s no reason for your conservatory to turn into a no-go area right when you need it the most. The innovative Equinox Tiled Conservatory Roof System turns your existing conservatory into a fully insulated room just like any other in your house – without sacrificing all that additional light your conservatory windows let in.
Extra time spent indoors during the winter doesn’t have to mean time spent in the dark. However, once your Equinox conservatory roof is in place, you’ll quickly discover that enjoying your conservatory isn’t just limited to daylight hours – even in winter. With your roof in place, your conservatory retains the heat – just like any other room. However, you can always add underfloor heating or double or triple glazing. We’re happy to advise you on how to get the most from your conservatory throughout the year. If you already own a conservatory, then beating the winter blues is easier than you think. What’s more, your new Equinox conservatory roof can be installed quicker than you think. Watch our timelapse video to see our skilled installers at work. Call us or arrange for us to give you a callback to discuss how the seasons may change – but you’ll get more use from your conservatory no matter the time of year. Make your conservatory season-proof with Equinox – and say goodbye to the winter blues once and for all.
