How To Make Your House Extension Thermally Efficient

How do you make your house extension thermally efficient? If you’re building a new space, you’ll want it to be warm and comfortable every day. However, some builds don’t keep you as warm as you’d like. For example, a conservatory can suffer from the greenhouse effect, while an older extension may lose its performance over time.

A modern house extension, though, is a thermally efficient design. In your new build, you can benefit from a range of options. Advanced double glazing, thermally efficient profiles, additional features with superb insulation, and new roofing all benefit your home. Not only that, but you can customise each design to suit your home’s style as well.

At Select Extensions, you can expand your home in complete comfort. You’ll have control over the process, creating a bespoke build that’s perfect for your home. From there, our installers will provide a bespoke service, fitting your new space made-to-measure. As a trusted local installer, we can provide that service with shorter waiting times and lower prices too!

Double Glazing To Make Your House Extension Thermally Efficient

The glass in your house extension plays a major role in making it thermally efficient. With old glass, you don’t get a lot of protection from the world outside. Most older extensions used only one glass layer in their windows, meaning they didn’t insulate your home well. Not only that, but the profiles around them could wear down over time, creating gaps for cold air to rush in.

However, your new house extension will feature double glazing, making the build far more thermally efficient. The two panes of glass inside your windows create a thermal barrier for your home, keeping cold air out and warm air in. Not only that, but double glazing helps with sound insulation and security.

As a result, your new extension will feel like any other room in your home. It could even feel warmer, brighter and more comfortable. With the option of solid walls made with robust materials, you’ll get superb insulation across the build, and you’ll let more natural light into your home. That way, you can stay warm while saving money on your heating bills!

Roofing To Make Your House Extension Thermally Efficient

Your house extension roof can also make or break whether a build is thermally efficient. The roof comes into the most contact with the sun, meaning a bad roof creates an intense greenhouse effect. Not only that, but old glass roofs could struggle with the sun’s glare. That means the sunlight could become too intense, making it difficult to even see inside your space.

With your new house extension, though, you can build a sleek, stylish roof that gives your new build a centrepiece. You could choose double glazing panels, or go with something more robust. Options like solid and tiled roofs dramatically improve your insulation and privacy, and you could also add a skylight or roof lantern to the design!

Also, your roof will be fully weatherproof. That means, during the winter months, your ceiling will seal your extension off against wind and rain. And, even in the worst conditions, the materials inside your roof won’t crack, warp or twist, meaning they’ll keep their shape and their strength. That means your new house extension will be thermally efficient for years to come.
