Adding a Sunroom for the Minnesota Winter Months

Okay, with the excessive heat we have been having lately, it may seem like an odd time to be talking about home remodeling for the purpose of enjoying your home in the winter.  Well, part of it is because the thought of cooler weather and snow is somewhat refreshing right now, but the main reason is that there is no better time to tackle that kind of a project than the summer. That way when winter hits, you’ll be all ready.

May we recommend converting your deck, porch, or patio to an enclosed sun room?

Living in Minnesota, we all know that the weather can be cold throughout the winter months. Snow comes and goes and it can be chilly for quite a while. Many people wonder why they should even add a sun room when we live in such coldness for most of the time. However, there are perks to adding a sun room as a special place to relax, no matter what the weather.

The big thing is that you can save some money when you get a sun room.  It will add value to your home. You can also use a sun room year round, so you never have to worry about needing it to be sunny and warm outside – you can enjoy the snow, sitting in the comfort of your home.  And you can enjoy the great outdoor scenery on hot days, too – staying comfortable in your home where it’s air conditioned.  Imagine floor-to-ceiling glass, complete with screens to allow you to take advantage of the nice breezes on cooler days.

Another way you can save money is if you add your sun room on the south side of your home.  That allows you to take advantage of the heating rays of the sun to help warm up your home, cutting your heating costs in the process.

Year Round Use

Many people think that they can just use a sun room when it is warm out, but this is not the case. You can actually use the room throughout the entire year. Watch the snowflakes fall from inside the room just like when you watch the spring flowers pop up.

Great Space for Parties

When you need more space for parties, this is where you’re going to be able to find it. You can let people mingle out in this room and enjoy the sun that comes with it. Not only that, but you can also make it cozy so you will want to curl up and lay out there when you’re alone.

Say Good-bye to Cabin Fever

Cabin fever every winter is a thing of the past. Now you can have sunlight without the cold in the winter when you use your sun room when the colder months are upon us. You can still get the benefits of the sunlight and warmth, but use your heat inside the home to keep you comfy.
