Many additions add character to our homes. Whether it’s a vinyl fence, pergola, or deck, these additions make our homes better in the long run. A sunroom addition is a delightful way to expand your living space and enjoy the outdoors without leaving the comfort of your home. There are several different types of sunrooms to choose from, which gives you the flexibility to choose which kind fits you and your family’s needs best. A sunroom provides extra space for social gatherings and relaxation, but what about during the cold winter months? Read on to learn how to heat your sunroom during the winter so you can use it whenever you’d like.
Sunroom Additions For Wintertime
Whether you’ve already got a sunroom addition or are looking to add some to your house, you must know the differences between sunroom types and what is best for your home and the climate you live in can be very helpful. Determining which kind of sunroom is best for use in the winter months will assist you in your decision-making process.
Three Season Room Additions
A three season room isn’t engineered to be heated and cooled consistently. However, with the help of an electric fireplace, space heater, or other heating sources, a three season room can be used occasionally in cooler weather. Depending on the severity of the cold weather, the length of time you can use your sunroom might fluctuate. The glass in your windows also makes a difference in how you can use your three season room during the winter months. The key to a proper sunroom is all about insulation, which is why windows and a patio enclosure makes the most sense.
Four Season Room Additions
If you are looking to add space into your home that can be cooled and heated all year, a four season sunroom might be the ideal solution. Because of their thermally-engineered frame and 6-inch roof system, a four season room can be temperature controlled with a room cooling or heating unit. The triple polypropylene weatherstripping with fin seals will give you triple the protection against cold drafts, which helps keep your room warm in the chilly, blustery winter. Again, interlocking the sashes on your doors will help seal out any of the elements from your sunroom.
Traditional Sunroom Additions
A traditional sunroom can be used every single day a year because it is usually tied into your home’s HVAC system. Because of this connection, a traditional sunroom can be a real extension of your home, offering you the same cooling or heating options as the rest of your home.
