As you start brainstorming the criteria to present to your realtor during your search for your family's dream home, you may want to consider adding a sunroom to your checklist. At first glance, a sunroom may seem more like a luxury than a non-negotiable item, but once you better understand the added benefits to your lifestyle (and the higher resale value of the property), you won't want to exclude this item from your list of preferred features!
Increased Energy Efficiency
A properly designed sunroom should be 50% glass and include windows that have a low solar heat loss coefficient, usually labeled as a "U-factor." While sunrooms typically don't need central air or heat, finding a home with double-pane insulated glass will guarantee a comfortable and relaxing space throughout the year. In addition, because sunrooms act as sources of auxiliary heat for your home, they can potentially offer you major savings on your winter energy bills.
Enjoy Extra Space
As a flexible space, a sunroom allows you to create everything from a perfect garden oasis to a well-lit playroom for your little ones. Entertain family and friends in style with a sunny space that's perfect for intimate gatherings. Whether you want a warm indoor space, the perfect place for your yoga routine, or a cozy venue to start your book club, you'll find everything you're looking for when you close on a home with plenty of extra light and warmth.
Satisfy Your Craving for Natural Light
Increasing your daily exposure to sunlight can offer an array of health benefits, like a stronger immune system and a vitamin D boost. If you're currently working remotely, you may be pleased to know that natural light can even boost your productivity, meaning that a sunroom may be the perfect spot for your peaceful home office.

Matt is a fantastic sales representative who wears the face of Robertson Brothers very well, working with him during the home buying process was a joy and effortless. My next home purchase (in 5 year) I will definitely be reaching out to Matt at Robertson. Noel is by far the hardest worker in the entire Robertson Brothers company, and I mean that with all sincerity. I checked on my home builder progress on a weekly basis and now matter how busy Noel was he always made sure to say hello to me and answered any questions I had. I only called/texted him a couple times and he got back to me in minutes every time. He even helped me with two warranty issues after I moved in and he resolved each within 24 hours of me texting him. This guy is fantastic and I seriously hope his hard work is appreciated within the company.
