Posted on Tue, Nov 22, 2016

Why a Year Round Sunroom?

A four seasons sunroom is, well, a room in which you can enjoy great amounts of sunlight all year round. Often times, a sunroom stems from a porch that has been completely screened in and turned into an insulated space. Having plenty of windows means that you can open them up and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, without any of the hassles of bugs during the summer. But this also means that since the space is insulated, you can enjoy the fall and winter months as the sunroom is heated. Who can say no to sitting back and relaxing in your sunroom, watching the snow gently fall on a cold winter evening?

Extra Room To Your Home

A sunroom not only gives you a place to enjoy the outside while inside, but it also offers more square feet of living space. Whether you use your sunroom as a place to eat, do work, or sit back and relax, it adds more usable space to your home. This could be especially useful if your home is smaller, and perhaps lacks space that you couldn't really add to the interior of the home. Additionally, this could be a great space to get away. Whether it's from the chaos of family, or just wanting a quiet place to gather your thoughts, a sunroom could be a perfect place.

A four season sunroom can also be an extension of the outdoors. If you like to host parties in the backyard, now you have a perfect option for inclement weather.

Now that you understand the advantages of a four season sunroom, let's talk about logistics.

Heating and Cooling Your Sunroom Addition

It's important when you are adding extra space to your home to be used throughout the year that you know how you will keep it cool in summer and warm in the winter. No matter where you live, it's not always the perfect temperature, and so you'll want to find the best system to regulate the temperature. If your home already has an existing duct HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning System) system, then there is a good chance you'll be able to just extend it into your sunroom. If it doesn't, then you could consider a room system which we can provide.

Additionally, aside from finding the perfect heating and cooling system, you'll also want to invest in better energy efficient sunroom windows. When you have the right type of window, they help to keep the heat out and cool in and vice versa depending on the weather. Energy efficient windows help you control the temperature in your sunroom. In addition, curtains or even tinted windows can also help you accomplish the same goal. Finally, you should consider building your sunroom using vinyl, which is not only a great insulator, but also more durable, and maintenance free.

Nevertheless it's important to find a way to make your room livable. It won't be good for you, if it's too hot in the summer and entirely too cold in the winter. 

A four seasons sunroom will be an addition to your home that you won't regret. It adds not only space to your home, but space that you can enjoy year round. No matter what you are looking to gain from a four season sunroom, it can fit any needs that you have.
