Natural light creates an energy saving multi-use space.
Thanks to the general sunlight Calgary receives (over 2350 hours per year, one of the highest amount in Canada!), a sunroom truly becomes a multi-use space.
Dry your clothes in your sunroom – that’s convenient as drivers are, they’re also big energy users, it takes a fair bit of energy to heat and circulate the air used to dry your clothes. In place of a dryer why not hang your clothes on a drying rack in your sunroom? With ample sunlight your clothes will dry much faster than you think (the same is true even for overcast days due to the heat trapping effects of your sunroom.
Use your sunroom as an indoor garden – Calgarians are big on their gardens thanks to the short growing season and ample sunlight. What if you could extend your growing season, grow a larger variety of plants and enjoy the benefits that they offer? Well, inside your sunroom, you can!
Warm up inside your sunroom – Many Calgarians turn on their natural gas fireplace when they’re cold. Hey we get it, two or three week cold snaps don’t do it for us either. However, the ambient temperature inside the sunroof can be several degrees warmer than the rest of your home. Instead of turning on your fireplace, why not spend some time basking in the sun? In addition to helping your warm up you’ll also feel better – the exposure to the sun helps your body create vitamin D, which is essential in your emotional well-being.
These are just three examples of how you can use your sunroof, but here are countless others. After all, its your room to enjoy and utilize as you wish!
