Your Sunroom: 3 Seasons or 4?

When planning your sunroom, first consider how you want to use your room. That will help you make the decision between a 3-season or 4-season addition. The benefit of a 4-season room is having extra space all year round to entertain or for your family to spread out. But if you just want a special place to enjoy the warmer months, then a 3-season sunroom provides what you need.

One of the biggest differences is a 3-season room doesn’t need insulation; a 4-season room needs to retain heat in the winter so that it can be used all year. A heating and cooling unit can be added to a 3-season sunroom to take the edge off of extreme temperatures, but it’s more efficient for temperature control year-round in the insulated 4-season room.

The type of glass differs as well, with single pane windows typically being installed in a 3-season sunroom and a 4-season room having more energy efficient windows throughout.

Even though there are construction differences, the decision to have a 3-season sunroom or a 4-season sunroom ultimately comes down to how you want to use your extra space.

They're doing work on our house. Reliable, professional, knowledgeable and courteous.
I tapped Choice Home Remodeling for a project involving exterior doors. I spoke to the service manager, Lonnie, who was very helpful and accommodating in scheduling the work. Lonnie called me a few days later to inform me he could have the techs out two weeks earlier, which was greatly appreciated.Tim, the installer manager, and Brian arrived for the service call. From the beginning, they were very polite and professional, and upon speaking to them, I knew they were very knowledgeable and competent. Their work was performed with great precision in a timely manner. I wholeheartedly recommend Choice for any of the numerous services they provide.
