Add a Three-Season Sunroom to Your Home

If you spent a good amount of time mulling over the decision about whether or not to add a sunroom to your home and finally decided to move forward, you probably felt a sense of relief and anticipation. We at PAsunrooms look forward to going on this journey with you. However, the decision to install a sunroom is only the first of many you will need to make regarding your sunroom, and you may find some of the terms confusing. Here is what you need to know.


If you look at distributors other than PAsunrooms, you may see advertisements for three-season sunrooms and wonder whether a three-season sunroom is the standard type. Simply put, a three-season sunroom is one you can enjoy for three seasons out of the year. What you can infer, of course, is that there is one season of the year where you can’t enjoy your sunroom if you install a three-season sunroom in Lebanon or surrounding areas in PA. That would be winter.

The reason three-season sunrooms typically aren’t a good fit for winter is because their windows do not have the kind of insulation and protection you get from the glass in a four-season sunroom. This means indoor heat can escape from your sunroom glass and render the room too cold to enjoy. If you are interested in installing a three-season sunroom in Carlisle or a neighboring area contact us today for help deciding on which sunroom style is the best fit for you.


The main advantage that three-season sunrooms have over the four-season variety is that they are a bit more affordable. If you don’t live in your home for most of the winter, it may be worth it for you to opt for a three-season sunroom to save a little bit of money. If you do spend your winters at home, you will probably want to invest in a four-season sunroom so you can enjoy it all year.

Is a Three-Season Sunroom Right for You?

Three-season sunrooms are an option for some homeowners, but they’re not always an ideal solution in Pennsylvania depending on what you are looking for. Even when you face cold Pennsylvania winters, a four-season sunroom will allow you to use your sunroom four seasons a year, even in the winter, offering you exceptional value for the money. A four-season sunroom will also increase the value of your home more than other options, since buyers can enjoy the space all year long.

Some shady sales professionals suggest a three-season sunroom as a way to encourage clients to spend money but stay within budget. Fortunately, you do not have to choose between your budget and a four-season sunroom. Just contact PAsunrooms for a free in-home consultation. We can help you understand the total costs involved with both types of sunrooms, and we even offer financing. We’ll work on your budget so that you get an additional space that adds beauty, sunlight and value to your home without hurting your finances.
