Conservatory roof

Hi all. We inherited a conservatory and as the advertisements on TV say it gets too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Has anybody put the thermal panels in the roof and found it useful? (the glass panels are removed first). Does it really add value to the house price or just sales talk? Thanks in advance

Do you have a glass roof or a polycarbonate one?

We have just had a sunroom built on the back of the house & it has this type of roof. You can use them to replace the roof on an existing conservatory.
Pleased so far, but obviously not had chance to see if it’s as warm in the winter as promised.

We've had this for a few years now, it's been worth every penny

Can I ask if it was expensive?

We've had a resin tiled roof put on our previously glass roofed conservatory. The conservatory was too cold in Winter and like an oven in Summer. We can now comfortably use it all year round.

It's the best purchase we've made.
