No amount of guesswork goes into this short introductory note on sunrooms. It does however use a bit of the construction imagination in wonder what sunrooms additions in San Jose, CA would be appropriate for a newly completed sunroom construction out that way. Expect plenty of sunshine out there for most parts of the year, so putting up a blind would be a sound idea for a sunroom like that. And perhaps because it tends to get a lot warmer than elsewhere in the country the propensity towards air-conditioning units for such rooms might be a little too tempting.
But because of the vagaries of climate change and global warming, the discouragement towards such units are becoming ever louder and all the more stronger. Even so, there are still other ways and means. Other ways and means to keep your sunrooms cooler, ways and means to keep them warmer as well. In the cooling case, screening structures could be used. In the warming case, thicker curtains and rugs or carpets could be utilized. But in both cases, the better insulation functions make it possible to keep the rooms cooler and/or warmer as the case may be.
The main insulation feature here comes by way of the windows. By insulating the rooms through this method, rooms are warmed or cooled, or both a lot quicker through natural means. There is no less need to crank up the heating and/or cooling power. Instead of actual windows, patio doors could be used. This provides the sunroom for a neat and flowing gateway to the rest of the property and in this case to a garden area, overseen by a patio or porch space. What could be better? What could be more enjoyable?
