Summers in the UK are predicted to reach an astonishing 40 °C (104 °F) one day. As such, legislation is being brought in that mean the installation of conservatories – as part of any newly built home – will need to show they do not create excessive solar gain. Fortunately, NECS Roof Systems is well ahead of the curve. We’ve been manufacturing eco-friendly and legislative-compliant conservatory roofing for years.
As part of an overriding goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent, this most recent legislation also has additional provisions devoted to improving interior ventilation. Window sizes are also affected should their placement lead to overheating the interior of the home. So, does this new legislation threaten the future of conservatories? Not necessarily.
Whilst conservatories have long been sought after for their increased floor space and ability to allow homeowners to enjoy the outdoors, they would easily overheat and become unbearable under these increasing temperatures. However, that would only be the case for conservatory roof manufacturers who have yet to adjust their roofing designs to the reality of climate change.
Fortunately, NECS Roof Systems is a forward-thinking conservatory roof manufacturer whose existing roofing solutions already account for this all-important legislative requirement. Ultimately, future-proofing homes against the effects of climate change – whilst providing improved energy efficiency – has long been a goal of the NECS Roof Systems engineering team. So, as a conservatory roof installer, what can you expect from your NECS Roof Systems partner?
