Windows should be viewed as a system within your house. The Window Systems transport air of various temperatures, light and people rather than transporting gas or electricity. Like other areas of your home that show warning signs when something is wrong, such as a leaky roof or chipping exterior paint, your windows show signs of age, damage and inefficiency, too. However, window warning signs are often times hidden and less obvious or alarming as water spots on the ceiling or terminate infested siding.

Sun rooms can be a great addition to any home and can provide a number of uses but there are a few items to consider. You may find that a screened in porch is a more desirable option. A screened in porch is exactly what the name implies. It contains a roof, structural members and is screened in, using screen material to enclose the room and protect occupants from insects but not the elements. Whereas a sun room is enclosed by glass, often with sliding doors that contain screens, and is often times heated and/or cooled and does protect occupants and furnishings from the elements. In some cases, a screen in porch can be converted to a sun room by swapping the screened walls for glass walls. In this example, you then have a sun room and a screened room by just opening up the glass windows. By adding a heater and an air conditioner, the space can be used year round.
