Why It's Time to Start Thinking About Your Sunroom Now

Tweet

If you're sitting in the mid-winter cold and wishing for warmer weather, we have good news for you. It may be chilly out now, but this is a great time to start thinking about your new sunroom. A sunroom is a great way to enjoy the outdoors without downsides. A three-season sunroom is surrounded by windows that let light in, but keep out bugs and weather. You can enjoy the beauty of your backyard and the cozy amenities of indoor living. Four-season sunrooms are built with insulated glass windows, so you can heat or cool the room as necessary. You can enjoy your climate-controlled four-season sunroom on the coldest winter nights and the hottest summer afternoons. But there's no need to wait for spring. Now is the time to start thinking about your new sunroom.

Three-Season Sunroom

A three-season sunroom is an addition to your home, but unlike a regular addition, the walls are almost entirely windows. A sunroom allows you all the comforts of indoor living. But as you sit in your sunroom, you are surrounded on three sides by nearly transparent walls, allowing you the light and beauty of sitting outdoors. If you open the windows on a pleasant day, you have the benefit of a fifty-percent enclosed room.

A three-season sunroom is called three-season because the windows can make somewhat more susceptible to outside temperatures than the rest of your home. When it is very hot and sunny, a three-season sunroom can get quite warm. On cold days, the windows may make the room much cooler than the rest of the house.

To minimize overheating in the hot Atlanta summers, some homeowners install solar shades on their sunroom windows. A solar shade is a thick, dark shade that blocks the sun when you need is but fully retracts when you don't. Solar shades can be manually controlled or raised and lowered with a motor and a remote control.

Four-Season Sunroom

A four-season sunroom has all the benefits of a regular sunroom, but with the addition of fully-insulated windows. The insulated windows help to regulate the temperature in the room, so you can heat or cool the room as you would in the rest of your house. With a fully climate-controlled sunroom, your four-season sunroom is truly an extension of your indoor living space. Even on the hottest summer days or coldest winter nights, you can enjoy your sunroom in comfort.

Adding a four-season sunroom is like adding another room to your home. Many homeowners put comfortable furniture like couches and lounge chairs in their sunrooms to create a secondary living room or family room. A sunroom can also serve as a dining area, complete with a dining room table and chairs. It is like al fresco dining all year-round, with the comfort of heating, cooling, and a real roof. Some homeowners turn their sunrooms into a home office. With beautiful natural light and a view of the outdoors, a four-season sunroom can make working a pleasure. Another great use for a four-season sunroom is as a playroom for children. It allows children to enjoy real sunlight all year-round. It also gives them the feeling of playing outside even when the weather won't allow it.
