Things To Consider When Adding A Hot Tub

For centuries, man has recognized the therapeutic benefits of hot water. When you combine swirling, spurting jets with that hot water you get the ultimate in healing and relaxation. A hot tub or spa can be a healthy solution If you suffer from chronic pain brought on by conditions such as:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Strained muscles

Important considerations

Before you begin, you need to understand that while a hot tub is wonderful, it is a body of water and it can be dangerous. It is important to include a hot tub enclosure in your plans. Other considerations include:

  • Zoning considerations and permits
    • Your contractor will be able to help you with this
  • Are there any special residential or homeowners association requirements for adding a hot tub in your area?
  • Safety requirements and signage
  • Plumbing and drainage issues
  • Access to the area for the contractor
  • Humidity control
  • Ventilation
  • Cleaning systems
    • While the use of chemicals is necessary there are machines that will reduce the need for them
  • Electrical requirements
    • Check with an electrician to ensure you have proper voltage and wiring

Your hot tub will require a solid foundation which will support the weight of the tub and the water and will provide a safe entry and exit when the floor becomes wet.

Which hot tub do you want?

Buying a hot tub is like buying any other appliance. The price is based on the size of the unit, the quality of the unit, and the manufacturer. You will need to consider the shape and size of the unit in order to fit it into the designated space. You will also need to determine how many people you would like to fit in the hot tub at one time.

Do your homework. Inquire about the efficiency of the unit and the chemical costs and equipment available to keep the water clean.

Be sure to inquire about the warranty of the hot tub. Remember though, a warranty is only as good as the company that sells it to you. So, use a quality label.

Hot tub enclosures

As mentioned, a hot tub enclosure is the safest way to protect children and pets from life threatening accidents. But there is more to the use of an enclosure than that. The hot tub enclosure keeps leaves, dirt, and insects out of your hot tub.

An enclosed hot tub area allows you to use your hot tub all year. You do not have to let cold temperatures, rain, or even snow stop you from enjoying your spa.

Finally, hot tub enclosures are beautiful. They add to your property value and can be created in different shapes, heights, and sizes. These factors help with the operating cost of the unit and the comfort levels.

There are few things in life more relaxing and more beneficial to your body than a hot tub. We encourage you to shop wisely and use an enclosure for the life of the system and the safety of everyone around you.

The Costs of Adding a Sunroom – An Investment For Comfort

When they say necessity is the mother of invention they could have been talking about sunrooms or solariums. As early as the 16th century, people were using houses made of glass, to bring the outdoors inside.

Those houses have been called greenhouses, hot houses, orangeries (for conserving oranges), Pinery (for conserving pineapples), conservatories (for conserving plants). Sunroom costs are minor in comparison to the benefits they provide.

During this time, the health benefits of these open-area rooms were discovered and hospitals began installing solariums.

Throughout the years, the quality and efficiency has improved. This makes them much more available and practical for the individual home.

Building a sunroom onto your home is a wise investment

There are several reasons why adding a sunroom to your property is a financially sound choice. The reasons include:

  • Improves the aesthetics of the property
  • Increases property value and resale price
  • Adds quality living space
  • Improves lighting (by providing natural light)
  • Open area provides impression of extra space
  • Safe area for children and pets to get sunlight and still be in secured place

How much does adding a sunroom cost?

Note: every home and property layout is different. It is important to speak with a professional for an accurate quote based on your particular needs.

Permits:

Your contractor will pull all required permits. Choose a quality builder with experience who is licensed and insured.

Foundation:

When choosing a foundation, (concrete or wood), where you live is a big consideration. Pouring a concrete slab in the north has more requirements due to the freezing conditions than in the south. This could increase the cost for a concrete slab quite a lot in the northern states.

However, if you are using an existing porch or patio as your foundation, those expenses will be reduced significantly.

Choosing what type of sunroom

Gable – A Gable type sunroom is just what it says; it is a room surrounded by glass with a gable roof.

Studio – A Studio has more of a “Lean To” attached style to it, in that the roof attaches to the side of the house and come out like a porch with glass walls.

Conservatory (Solarium) – Solid glass walls and ceiling to get the full benefit of the natural light available.

Victorian – elaborate and ornamental with roof top details

Edwardian – simple, more squarish, higher pitch in the roof

Georgian – 18th-century style not as ornate as Victorian, usually doesn’t have gutters

How long does it take to build a sunroom

Once a typical sunroom is started, from the time the permits are pulled until the final inspection shouldn’t take more than three weeks to complete it. If the foundation is already there the time will be cut considerably.

With the cool months right in front of us, if you act now, you could be enjoying your fall season in the comfort of your very own Sunroom.

Glass Pool Enclosures Make Year Round Swimming a Reality

There is nothing more refreshing, fun, and healthy than swimming. Water lovers often invest in a home pool and sometimes an outdoor hot tub. These are luxuries that give us a greater quality of life. Thanks to glass pool enclosures, pool, and hot tub owners can enjoy these luxuries year round.

What are Glass Pool Enclosures?

glass pool enclosure is much like a conservatory for your pool area. It is a building made of glass that covers the entire pool area. This allows the sunshine in and harsh weather out. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, built to suit your needs.

If you like to use a diving board or want height above the pool, you can have it. There are enclosures that are specifically built to handle the height requirements of diving. If you are not a lover of heights, you can get a medium or low height enclosure, which has its own specific benefits. The lower ceilings trap heat in the water better, which reduces power consumption and they combat evaporation caused by the rate of the wind, which means you do not have to change the water in the pool or spa as often.

Are there other benefits?

Besides the fantastic and obvious benefit of year-round swimming, having a glass pool enclosure has many (and often) surprising benefits.

  • It adds value to the home

The glass pool enclosure is beautiful and functional and adds to the resale value of your property. It has tremendous curb appeal and takes your home pool to a whole new level.

  • Reduces the need for excess chemicals

An enclosed pool has a reduced exposure to phosphates, pollutants, and pathogens that can be hazardous. Because of this, you need fewer chemicals to keep the water clean. This means a healthier swimming experience and financial savings in operational costs.

  • Less cleaning and maintenance

Your pool is protected from objects that fall or land in the pool. No more will you have to spend an hour cleaning and vacuuming the pool before you can even get in. The pool is no longer subject to:

  • Dead leaves
  • Falling branches
  • Tree pollen
  • Bees and ants
  • Toys that are accidentally thrown in
  • Bugs and spiders
  • Safety and liability

The number one fear a pool owner has is someone being hurt or killed on their property. Pools are magnets for children. No matter how close we are watching, children will manage to get into an exposed pool, hot tub, or spa. Every year in the United States more than 3,500 children drown in pools and most of them are children under the age of 14. No alarm, gate, fence, or wall can ensure the safety of neighborhood children as well as a pool that is protected with a glass enclosure.

  • The integrity of the pool

You do not have to worry about storms, wind, rain, and other elements causing damage to the pool since the weather cannot blow things into the pool there is no chance of debris clogging the water or filter system.

If you are a pool, hot tub, or spa owner, a glass enclosure is the best investment you can make for your health, quality of life, and continual financial savings.

Why A Conservatory Or Sunroom Is The Best Type Of Home Addition

The addition of a conservatory or a sunroom to a home is not a new idea. In fact, in many parts of Europe and the United Kingdom, the custom dates back to the 16th century. In areas where there is a lot of rain and wind, a conservatory or sunroom allowed the homeowner to enjoy their gardens when the seasons would not have permitted it.

Recent generations have experienced a renewed love of these structures. Today, we live in a global society. Uses for the sunroom and conservatory reach far around the globe. While our lives are no longer dictated by the climate in which we live, we still must bow to mother nature when the rains and winds must come.

Does the Victorian conservatory fit your style?

A sunroom is a room made of glass that is attached to the home. When you enter the sunroom, you enjoy the entire view of the landscape, all the way around the home. Plants grow well and the additional space has many features to enhance family life.

The addition comes in many styles to complement the architecture of the home. The Victorian style conservatory is one of the most popular because it works well with many home designs. It is plain, yet elegant and detailed. A conservatory has a roof that is also primarily made of glass, while a sunroom will usually have an extension of the roof on of the existing home.

Why are they a good investment?

victorian conservatory

Financially, conservatories and sunrooms are a wise investment because they add to your property value. They give you more living space and a unique and classic structure. A professionally built Victorian conservatory is a beautiful addition that adds character and depth to the home and gives it a more desirable curb appeal.

Homeowners use the area as a study, entertainment area for guests (especially if there is a pool nearby). Children are allowed to be exposed to the sunshine and the beauty of playing outside but remain safe. They are safe from people who may be up to no good, animals that could hurt them, or wondering out of sight and becoming lost.

As they are, in some climates, the conservatories or sunrooms are usable space (usually) three seasons per year. But we live in a modern world and the installation of a heating and air conditioning system can make these 4-season structures.

Plants

Some people use their conservatories as a room to grow flowers, vegetables, and other plants. Commercial conservatories do this on a much larger scale. Companies sometimes build these areas for the enjoyment of their employees. Relaxing in the areas or working with the plants provides satisfaction and stress relief. Not to mention that the plants are nutritious and exposure to the plants is good for the body. It is proven that people who spend time near plant life concentrate better and have more focus.

There are no negatives about building these structures. They add value financially, personally, and professionally.

 

 

4 season room

Convert A 3-Season Room Into Year-ound Living Space

Many homeowners enjoy the luxury of having a sunroom or a conservatory built onto their homes. This adds living space for relaxing, entertaining, or even to be used as an office or playroom. However, to change a 3-season room into a 4-season room brings with it a set of challenges.

What makes a 3-season room different than a 4 season room?

The easy answer to this question is heating and cooling. Many sunrooms are made from porches that have been converted. The porches are enclosed and this allows you to have space which is used spring, fall, and summer (except for very hot days). However, without a heating system to keep you comfortable, the room becomes useless in the winter. If you live in an area that has long, cold winters, this can make a serious impact on your living arrangements.

Why not just add a heater?

The original intention of the room has an impact on the future use of the room. If the room was built with glass walls and a glass roof, it is a conservatory which is designed to grow plants. A sunroom is almost all windows but with a solid roof. It is brighter and takes in more light. It is a living area.

The position of the room and the amount of sunlight it is exposed to make a difference. Here are a few other considerations:

  • Is there open space under the room?
  • How much insulation is in the room and roof?
  • What kind of flooring does the room have?

All of these factors must be taken into account to determine the challenges of heating the room. If the heating (or heating and air conditioning) system is continually cycling on and off due to extreme glass, sunlight, lack of trees or shrubs nearby the cost of heating it will be expensive. The life of the HVAC system will be shortened, and it would be difficult to maintain a comfortable temperature in the room.

To avoid these issues, you need a professional. They will check these factors and advise the best way to achieve your goal of having a 4-season room. This may mean some reconstruction of the structure, adding insulation, and planting greenery around the room. It could mean changing the roof. Or it could mean very little. Only an expert can tell you how to change the room and how to save money while increasing the property value of your home.

It is more affordable than you think

4 season room

This type of project can be very cost effective. One way you can save money is to tap into the existing HVAC system. Many of the building materials can be reused in the conversion of the room.

To know what expense you can expect, call a professional to come and give you a free estimate. Also, contact your HVAC contractor for an idea on what that will cost. You may be pleasantly surprised at how affordable this project can be.

Sunroom Serenity – The Hidden Health Benefits

The idea of a sunroom added to our homes brings images of enjoying life with our family in a protected and beautiful environment. If you live in a place that has harsh winters, you know the importance of owning four-seasons rooms for year round enjoyment. States like New Jersey have winters that keep the average person cooped up for several months per year.

What many people do not realize is that sunrooms have a lot of surprising health benefits that improve our lives. We will show you a few of the ways, having sunrooms in New Jersey can improve the quality of your lives.

Sunrooms New Jersey

While the temperatures begin to drop in the month of October and continue to drop until after the holidays, it is not the cold weather that causes the primary problems. Humans need exposure to natural light. Man can create artificial light for homes and offices, but they cannot imitate natural light. It is not the sunlight itself that causes the changes in your body. It is the reaction from your body to produce biological reactions to the sun that matters.

Ways a sunroom can help improve our health

  • Depression

It is a proven fact that sunlight has a direct effect on a person’s mood. When the brain is exposed to sunlight, it produces the “feel good” chemicals we are often deprived of when we are stuck in doors. Spending time in a sunroom tells your brain you are in a good place and rewards you with chemicals needed to keep you there.

  • Sleep deprivation

The human body has an internal clock that signals us to wake and too sleep. Because our lifestyles are often 24/7 machines, we need a signal that helps us keep our rest program. Using a sunroom is the easiest way to reset our biological clock and restore our natural sleeping habits.

  • Growing herbs and vegetables

A sunroom is the perfect environment to grow fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables. This is a fun hobby and a very calming project to work on. It is inexpensive and the plants are lovely to see in flower boxes or planters. But the best part is the foods you grow are healthy and delicious for consumption by you and your family.

What would you do with that extra room? Our Conservatories in Pennsylvania can offer you all kinds of possibilities, but consider these top 5 uses for your home.

1. For the Gardner

conservatories pennsylvania

Those with a green thumb can make great use of one of these fantastic rooms by using them as a greenhouse. Having your plants, or even your garden, inside allows them to flourish all year long. Could you imagine having fresh grown vegetables in the middle of winter? By controlling the temperature of the room, those who love to keep plants in their home will find that they can now grow flowers and plants that were impossible before. With a conservatory, you can step into your own green wonderland any time you want. It certainly creates the perfect dream space for any plant lover.

2. For the Cook

Adding on to your kitchen with a conservatory gives your cooking area more space, while creating a well lit and relaxing atmosphere. We could all use a little more space in the kitchen, that’s for sure, but imagine creating your favorite dish with the sunlight shining down onto your stove top, and cutting board. Cooking can be a highly meditative exercise, and these glass rooms add to that experience tenfold. Add a dining room table, or an island, and have some company over to watch your master chef skills in action while providing a comfortable and social atmosphere for your guests. Plus, your kitchen will look absolutely stunning.

3. Relaxation Station

After a long day at work, imagine coming home to your very own oasis.

4. For the Businessman and Woman

Work from home jobs are on the rise in America, and that’s great! Finding space for a home office, though, can often be a little challenging. Instead of changing the purpose of an already existing room, why not create the perfect work space? Combine that comfy home office setting with the sunlight and fresh air of the outdoors, all while working in your pajamas if you’d like. Design you dream office, then add a few plants to complete the feng shui. Working from home can’t be beat, but working from your home conservatory takes things to a whole new level.

Preparing Your Sunroom for Summer

With summer just around the corner, it is important to prepare your sunroom so you and your guests can take full advantage it.

1. Spring Cleaning

sunrooms delaware

Like any part of your home, your sunroom is going to need a good cleaning. One of the most important things to do is to clean those windows. With winter slowly fading away, you will probably notice its aftereffects on all of your home’s windows. Eliminate any debris that might be hanging around, and give them a good wash on both the inside and outside. They will look fantastic with a good shine, but more importantly this allows for the most amount of fresh air and sunlight to enter the room. Simply adding this chore onto your spring cleaning list will make a world of difference when it comes time to enjoy your room.

Pro-tip: In a spray bottle, mix distilled white vinegar and water (50-50) for the perfect cleaning agent with no chemicals. You’ll be surprised at the results!

2. Keeping Things Cool

sunrooms delaware

Every region experiences summer a little differently, but everyone knows just how sweltering hot it can be. Keeping your sunroom cool is an essential part of enjoying it. To keep yours from becoming an oven, try using matchstick blinds. They help keep direct sunlight out while adding a unique style to your room. If blinds aren’t really your thing, then you could go with a window tint. Stay away from something too dark, though. A light tint is all you will need to get the results you are looking for.Both options are relatively cheap, and help keep your room graciously cool when that summer heat kicks in.

3. Light Up The Night

sunrooms delaware

There are few things that compare to a cool summer night. Whether you are unwinding at the end of a long day or having company over, nothing compliments the nighttime mood more than wall lights. Their ambient lighting is perfect for after dark fun, and they leave you with more floor space so you can decorate as you please. Check your local hardware store for a variety of options to suit your style.

4. Putting It All Together

Last, but not least, it’s time to set things up! Pick out some tables, chairs, futons, whatever you would like to create the ultimate atmosphere for you and your guests. This is where you can really let your personal style shine. Keep in mind what you will be using your sunroom for most. Will it be your private getaway? A barbecue and picnic spot? A room for your plants to thrive? A lounge with a poker table? Or something else you have in mind? Decorate accordingly, and your room will be ready for you to use whenever you would like.

5 Common Sunroom Repair Issues to Watch For

After a crazy winter where freezing weather was interspersed with temperatures associated with summertime, you may be looking ahead to consistently warmer weather where you can enjoy long days and nights with the windows open in your sunroom. Now, before the season starts, is a good time to examine the room and arrange for any needed sunroom repairs.

Whether your sunroom was a new addition to your home or a converted porch or deck, there are several things you should attend to before small problems become large and more costly.

Storm Damage

sunroom repairs

Throughout the year, wind and weather can wreak havoc on glass enclosures and you may find yourself plagued with leaks, damaged shingles or siding, or compromised glass. DIY repairs are seldom enough to ensure that you have undone the damage from heavy snow, driving rain or hail, or windstorms.

Leaks At The Joints, Roof, Or Roof Line

sunroom repairs

As sunrooms age, you may experience leaking around the joints, especially where the building joins the house, at the roof line, or where the floor meets the ground. Newer constructs have airtight connectors that reduce or eliminate leakage, but on older units, you may see or feel evidence of water or air leaks. Previous owners may have caulked around seams to prevent leaks, but the only long-lasting remedy may be to professionally rebuild parts of the structure, or at least replace damaged siding or roofing materials.

Condensation On The Glass, Summer Or Winter

sunroom repairs

Having some condensation on the inside or outside of your windows can be a problem with sunrooms that are heated for four season use; the risk is that excessive condensation can lead to mold in many areas of the country. The best way to prevent this is to construct the sunroom with a wall system that includes a thermal break of nonconductive material that prevents heat and cold transfer between the indoors and outdoors. In addition, the window systems should be at least double pane with argon or krypton between the panels.

If your four season addition is experiencing condensation, call professionals to evaluate your room and recommend whether you need to replace the windows, add additional insulation, or reconstruct part of it to incorporate a thermal break.

Clouded, Cracked, Or Broken Glass

sunroom repairs

Whether it has skylights, a partially glass roof, or large side windows, you want the glass to be tempered safety glass or even a laminated glass protected by a plastic film in case of breakage.

Most sunrooms are fitted with safety glass, but when you have cloudy glass, cracks, or condensation, upgrading your windows, sliders, and skylights with products that offer improved solar protection and better insulation can make your room more comfortable, as well as safer and more beautiful.

Electrical, Heating, Or Cooling Problems

sunroom repairs

Whether you plan to use your sunroom three seasons or on your round, your enjoyment depends on you having proper illumination, as well as functional HVAC. By upgrading the electrical or HVAC equipment, you can extend the use of your home addition with upgrades that meet codes.

Growing Fruit Trees in Your Conservatory

indoor fruit trees, fruit trees, conservatory

If you are looking for a way to extend the growing season in your region, conservatories can be a great addition to your home. You can specialize in growing flowers, vegetables, or even fruit trees in your conservatory, which is characterized by an expanse of glass in the roof and sidewalls. What will grow best depends on your climate and on the specifications of your conservatory.

Designing The Best Conservatory For Fruit Trees

While most plants require heat and sun, they also require shade, moisture, air circulation, and relief from excessive sunlight. A proper conservatory regulates these variables with excellent design, maintenance, and proper accessories.

  • Controlling heat. Some conservatories are unheated, but controlling temperature is important in most climates. Even parts of Florida and California are chilly sometimes, but conservatories in New York, Kansas, or Denver need more year-round heat to ensure the survival of fruit trees and other produce. Depending on what you want to grow, you might choose to keep the temperature the same in the house or maintain a minimum temperature in the winter.
  • Provide shading and ventilation. Your conservatory should be fitted with solar-controlled glass on the roof that reflects the sun when it is at its highest. Adding electrically-controlled blinds to the roof and windows will mitigate sunlight, as well as lessen the impact of heat. Vents and doors enable air circulation to offset heat in warmer climates year round and in all climates in the summer.
  • Control humidity. Fruit trees and other plants in the conservatory need water and nutrients to support the root system and produce fruit, along with misting them with rainwater or lukewarm water every day.
  • Clean windows. Dirty windows limit light flow and provide a habitat for garden pests. Cleaning conservatory roofs and windows, especially on second-story conservatories is challenging, but specialized telescopic cleaning equipment can help both professionals and homeowners keep the windows clean.

Choosing Fruit Trees For Conservatories

Knowing the proper temperature and conditions that various types of fruit trees require will help you determine what to grow in your conservatory and how to regulate the temperature there. Using an online zone-finder can help you select the best for trees for your climate and offer insights about the proper temperature for conservatories in Delaware, Michigan, Maine, or other states.

  • Subtropical plants such as oranges, lemons, clementines, kumquats, and grapefruits require a minimum temperature of 40°F, but need temperatures up to 100°F to bear fruit.
  • Peaches and nectarine do well in temperatures of 50-55°F until the fruit sets, but higher temperatures of 65-70°F to bring fruit to maturity.
  • Mulberry trees require bright, indirect light and great ventilation, with the temperature of 55 to 70°F.
  • Figs, which will well in a large pot, need temperatures of 55 to 65°F, protection from direct sun, fertilization, only two or three times during the growing season.
  • Grapes, though not grown on a tree, grow well along walls and across the roof of conservatories where there is sun or light shade. They require constant temperature between 63-68°F to flower and temperatures in the seventies and eighties to ripen.
  • Apricot trees grow well in pots in sunny conservatories with temperatures of 60-80°F, but they can survive in very cold temperatures before they start to flower
