Would you like to spend more time with your family and friends outdoors in the beautiful sunshine? Unfortunately, living in Florida, heat, humidity, pollen, and insects can make it difficult to spend time outdoors year-round. But with a four season sunroom, you can enjoy your time in Florida with family and friends comfortably all year round.
What is a Four Season Sunroom?
A four season sunroom, also called a four season patio enclosure, is a type of room addition or enclosed porch that is designed to be used year-round, regardless of the weather outside. Because they are made up of mostly glass to let light in, they can typically be less expensive than a traditional room addition.
Three Season vs Four Season Sunrooms
While four season sunrooms are designed to stay comfortable year-round, three season rooms are not as well insulated and have no built-in heating or cooling system, so they are typically only comfortable three seasons out of the year. In Northern climates, those seasons are Spring, Summer, and Fall—but here in Florida, where winters are mild and summers are scorching hot, a three season sunroom would likely be ideal for the Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons instead.
Without the increased insulation factors, three season sunrooms tend to be less expensive than four season rooms, but do not offer the same flexibility. The main thing you’ll want to consider when deciding between a three and four season addition is how much time you plan to spend in your new sunroom.
Adding a Four Season Sunroom to Your Home
Before you add a four season sunroom to your home, there are a few questions that you and your family will want to discuss, such as:
- What would you like your new space to be used for?
- Will you be using it for large family gatherings or small get togethers?
- What furniture do you wish to have, and will you need any TVs or computers?
- How often will you use your four season sunroom?
Asking yourself these few important questions will help you to choose the right size and style for your new patio room.

Benefits of a Four Season Sunroom
Adding a sunroom has many benefits, from improving the value of your home to providing your family with more privacy.
Enjoy Your Room All Year Round
The weather in Florida can change from hour to hour. An insulated, air conditioned sunroom will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, whether it’s hot and sunny or stormy and wet.
Bug-Free Outdoor Entertaining
As any Floridian knows, mosquitoes, wasps, and ants are frequent guests at outdoor gatherings. With an enclosed sunroom, there’s no need for insect repellent to keep these intruders at bay! You and your guests will be able to enjoy an outdoor view and feel the sunshine from the comfort of your bug-free sunroom.
Increase The Value of Your Home
By increasing the square footage of your home, adding aesthetic appeal to your home’s exterior, and making your home more attractive on the inside by adding natural light, a four season room will add value to your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers in the future.
A four season sunroom lets you enjoy the natural light and outdoor views while still maintaining a level of privacy. Additionally, sunrooms can be equipped with blinds or shades, which can be closed to create an even greater sense of privacy. This is especially helpful if your sunroom faces a busy street or a neighbor’s property.
