4 Ways to Winterize Your CT Sunroom

By fiderioandsons Dec 17, 2014

With their large windows and open floor space, sunrooms are the perfect place for relaxation and privacy. But winter can make the space uncomfortable if the room is not properly winterized. There’s numerous steps a CT homeowner can take this season so they can still enjoy their CT sunroom despite the chilly weather.

Replace Windows

Inefficient old windows with weak seals are the easiest way for cold temperatures to seep inside your CT sunroom. Replace these windows with double pane glass windows that retain heat and keep winter temperatures outside.

Install Electric Baseboard

Installing an electric baseboard provides a source of heat to the room. Other appliances such as portable space heaters and ceiling fans are also effective at bringing in additional heat. Another option is a electric fireplace with a built-in heatilator which generates large amounts of heat capable of warming up your entire home.

Thermal Draperies

Heavy, thermal draperies are perfect for keeping out pesky drafts. They also look great and are easy to match with your CT sunroom decor. If you’re willing to sacrifice light for privacy, you’ll enjoy the additional insulation it provides between the windows and room.

Fill All Gaps

Any gaps between the wall and the window frame should be filled so cold air can’t enter through. Caulk, whether caulk or acrylic latex, is the best option for openings less than 1/4-inch wide which is should be perfect for the windows. Homeowners can also use paintable caulk that’s durable and will last for many years.
