How To Get More Light And Space At Home… All While Reducing Your Energy Costs

Looking to create a space with more natural light and space in your home? A great solution is a conservatory or a sunroom, but this addition –as with all home improvement solutions-- should balance comfort and aesthetics with energy efficiency and comfort.

Today, manufacturers must utilize advanced technology to ensure comfort and reduced energy costs over the life of their products. Innovations in glass and thermal efficiency is as important for the homeowner and the homeowner’s wallet as it is for the planet. One such example of high level thermal performance is ConservaGlass™ Select from Four Seasons Sunrooms.

This special glass technology was created for energy efficiency in climates where high levels of sunlight or extreme cold prevail. This all-weather glass offers homeowners amazing thermal benefits with a special glazing technique designed to keep rooms cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

A cool video about ConservaGlass that shows you how you'll be cool all summer!

Special microscopic coating of exotic metals and other compounds allow light to enter the room but block the heat and harmful UV rays. Your furniture does not fade and you stay cool during the heat of the day. Your sunroom may face a garden pond, pool or a lake. Many homes are fortunate to face the sea. Reflections of sunlight on the water can warm a room that does not have the special glass to filter the heat.

More Layers Mean More Comfort

ConservaGlass™ Select has 12 layers of glazing. This includes three silver layers protected by three barrier layers and four dielectric layers including a base. These 10 layers are bordered by a chemical layer and a sealant. The Select process includes an additional bonding to create an extra-smooth surface that will repel dust. The smooth surface repels dust and dirt that could interfere with the UV filter system.



Energy Savings For Better Value

Your cooling system does not need to work harder in a sunroom with ConservaGlass™ Select. The humidity level stays constant as well. This saves on your air conditioner and dehumidifier. The sunroom stays cool in hot desert locations or in more humid areas of the country while you enjoy the view.

Heat from your HVAC system stays in the sunroom during the colder months due to the thermal insulating properties of the layered glass. You control the sunroom environment with your home's programmed thermostat. Your sunroom is usable all year and you can grow houseplants that require light and a constant temperature.

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms.

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
