Does Installing Smartglass Mean That My Conservatory Will Never Get Hot?

No. Although we emphasis that newer modern glass conservatories can be used all year round, there are some cases where heat levels will rise. These typically include seasons of exceptional levels of heat. Although our conservatories are much more thermally efficient than many of the older conservatories, any type of glass will eventually store heat if continuously exposed to the suns rays.
