Ventilation in the winter garden - 3 ways to fresh air

The best way to ventilate a winter garden depends on the type of conservatory. In general, there are usually three ways to bring fresh air into the conservatory and get rid of the spent. Natürlich Natural ventilation of the conservatory

In natural ventilation, gravity takes over a large part of the work. The warm air rises and can escape through ventilation openings in the roof or the tilted windows above. From the outside, cold air comes in automatically.

But this only works as long as the air outside is actually cool. In summer, this method only brings more moisture into the conservatory.

Mechanical ventilation for the winter garden

Similar to natural ventilation, the mechanical version requires sufficiently large supply air openings. Already during the planning for the conservatory, attention should therefore be paid both to the air openings and to a power connection.

The disadvantage is on the one hand in the power consumption and on the other hand in the cold bridge, which often represent these ventilation systems in winter. A heated conservatory loses a lot of heat here.

In addition, these small ventilation systems are sometimes unpleasantly noisy during operation. Since they are not controlled by an automatic, they must be switched by hand.

Automatic ventilation - convenient and effective

The most expensive option is automatic ventilation, which has an electronic control system. Nobody has to be at home here, so the conservatory is ventilated. Many of these controllers can also be operated on the go via laptop or smartphone.

The advantages of automatic ventilation far outweigh the disadvantages. However, anyone who is always at home anyway, can easily do without it.

An overview of the three systems

natural ventilation - inexpensive, but not always possible, in addition presence required

  • mechanical ventilation - relatively cheap in purchase and operation, presence required
  • automatic ventilation with control - expensive to buy, but convenient and practical in the Operation, no presence required
  • Tips & TricksMany automatic ventilation systems can be retrofitted later. You should, however, create the possibilities already during the construction of the winter garden and provide a power connection at the key points.
