Three Season Rooms vs. Four Season Rooms: Which Type Is Right for You?

If you’re planning to build a room addition on your Lansing home, make sure that you consider three season rooms and four-season rooms. Before you make a decision, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each type with your remodeling contractor to ensure that the room you choose suits your location, lifestyle, and personal preferences.

Characteristics of Three Season Rooms

Homeowners choose three season rooms because they offer single-pane and double-pane glass options, triple track systems with ball-bearing wheels, and affordability. These rooms are functional only in moderate to warm temperatures in the spring, summer, and fall because they have to either be cooled and heating separately from homes or not at all. Additionally, they often lack insulation and contain aluminum framing that isn’t designed to retain heat. To increase the versatility of your three-season room, your remodeling contractor can add insulation and separate heating and cooling units.

Characteristics of Four Season Rooms

Four season rooms are known for their high cost as a result of many customizable and versatile features, such as monorail systems with ball-bearing wheels and double-pane glass options. Additionally, your remodeling contractor can build your four-season room with aluminum or vinyl framing options, which are thermally engineered for effective year-round insulation, and your remodeler will help you design your four-season room to accommodate your existing HVAC system. Four season rooms may be built with fewer windows than a sunroom so that the temperature is easier to maintain all year long.
