Winterizing your Myrtle Beach Four Seasons Sunroom allows your family to enjoy the extra space in a comfortable environment year round. Unlike other sunrooms, Four Seasons Sunrooms are insulated and must adhere to the same building codes as any standard add-on. There are a number of ways to make the sunroom more comfortable during the winter months, even if the space isn’t connected to your HVAC system.
Insulated Windows For Sunroom
Windows that aren’t sealed properly or don’t work efficiently because of age should be replaced or repaired. Double or triple-pane glass windows will keep the cold temperatures and cool breeze out. If it’s not time to replace the windows, check the seal around each area. A quick replacement of the window seals will make a big difference in your Myrtle Beach sunrooms temperature.
Fill The Gaps
If there are any gaps between the walls of your Four Seasons sunroom and the windows, fill the space so cold air can’t seep through. You can use caulk or acrylic latex for openings less that ¼ inch wide. Paintable caulk – which is durable and will last for years – can also be used to winterize your Myrtle Beach sunroom.
Thermal Drapes For Sunroom
Once you fill the gaps between the wall and windows of your Four Seasons Sunroom, hang thermal-insulated drapes in the room as an added barrier to cool temperatures. Not only will the heavy-duty curtains keep your sunroom warm, but it’s a good way to keep your home décor uniform.
Electric Baseboard Heat
Electric baseboard heat or portable heaters can also be used to keep your Four Seasons Sunroom warm. An electric fireplace is a great way to add heat and keep the home’s appearance in line with other rooms in the house. If the sunroom has a ceiling fan, be sure to flip the fan blades so that the fan rotates clockwise, pulling cool air up and pushing warm air down.
If your Four Seasons sunroom has wooden or tile floors, place a large area rug on the floor for added warmth. The rug will be an added barrier of cool temperatures coming from the floor.
An inexpensive way to keep cool draft from seeping through the window or door cracks is a draft stopper. (This tool is a great arts and craft project if you want to make one yourself). Draft stoppers can be placed along the bottom of doors or windows to block cool air.
