Sunrooms, conservatories, or Florida rooms, whichever name you want to call these sun-filled additions, they are sure making a comeback.
They were previously prevalent in the mid-20th century, but now it’s what everyone can talk about.
When you think of a sunroom, think luxury, it’s a blend of indoor/outdoor living only you don’t have to worry about the weather change or bugs disrupting your sunny morning or dinner cocktails with friends.
Are you interested in having a sunroom?
Well, there’s just one question: do you want a three-season or four-season room addition?
As the name implies, a three-season sunroom serves you for three seasons: spring, summer, and fall, whereas a four-season sunroom covers all four seasons.
Sunrooms look the same; the only difference is the way they are built.
- Since a four-season is an all-season addition, it is built to keep the room cool in the summer and warm in the winter, with insulation panels.
- A four-season also differs from a three-season because it has a built-in HVAC system.
- And the glass windows used in the four-season are much superior at regulating indoor temperature.
Besides these differences, these two styles of sunrooms are basically the same; they both feature vinyl windows and walls, and whichever you choose has to match the style of your home.
Cost of sunrooms
Because they bring a luxury feel, they can be pretty expensive. Most homeowners often opt for three-season rooms because they are less expensive compared to the four-season room.
And also, why pay for an extra season when you won’t use the room in winter? That’s the argument for most homeowners.
Generally, we recommend a four-season room, simply because it’s better to have options you don’t use rather than missing one you wish you had.
However, the decision lies on you as the homeowner; you do what you feel is right for you.
