Wherever you live – whether that’s in the south or the northeast – with the arrival of fall means cooler temperatures for the next few months. For some, that might be a snowy winter ahead or temperatures that only reach 60 degrees instead of 100 degrees. Whatever the case, a sunporch makes for an awesome living space that allows you to feel like your outdoors and enjoying the sunshine but while being protected from the elements.
Before you make your final decision about what type of sunroom will add the most function and value to your home, you’ll want to be sure you know the difference between a three-season and four-season sunroom. We’ve outlined the major differences between the two options.
- Glass – The glass installed in your sunroom renovation in St. Louis, MO, makes a major difference whether it can be used during warm months only or all year long. Single pane tempered glass windows are used in a three-season room for minimal energy efficiency while in a four-season room, high energy efficient windows are used.
- Insulation – Insulating the walls, roof, and floor are essential elements in extending the use of a sunroom from three to four seasons. The amount and quality of insulation makes a big difference between using the sunroom when it’s below freezing with snow on the ground or not being able to because it’s far too cold.
