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 Four Seasons Sunrooms 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. For example: three season and four-season sunrooms.
What kind of addition should you be looking for in Harrisburg, Lancaster or elsewhere in Central PA? What’s the difference between three season and four season sunrooms? Here is what you need to know.
What Are Three Season Sunrooms?
If you look at distributors other than Four Seasons Sunrooms, 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. That would be winter.
The reason three season sunrooms 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.
Why Would You Want a Three Season Sunroom?
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.
