Winter on a screened porch can be a bit too cool for comfort, even in the Atlanta area. Never fear, the top screened porch builders Atlanta, GA has to offer, give their expert tips. There are ways you can feel more comfortable in your outdoor entertainment space by incorporating one or more of the options, below.
Electric Space Heater: Space heaters are best suited for smaller areas; if your screened porch is larger, it may not provide the warmth you need. Yes, there is always the option of having more than one space heater operating at once, although this will be a lot more energy used and higher electric bills.
Freestanding Heaters: Typically, these are six feet tall and come both in electric and gas versions. Designed with a domed top to deflect warm air away from the heating element, they disperse heat effectively. Gas options tend to have better output than electric units, saving energy and money.
Infrared Systems: These are wall-mounted heaters that use infrared technology to heat the area versus blowing warm air onto the porch. They are generally more energy-efficient than other electric options. You can also find them in a variety of designs including free-standing infrared electric fireplace stoves.
Natural Gas-Powered Heaters: These heaters are best for a large porch, though it is critical to consider safety if you choose this route. Make sure you have adequate ventilation and follow the installation recommendations for ceiling height and placement of the unit in your space.
Tabletop Heaters: Ideal for smaller porches, tabletop heaters have heating elements built into them.
Fire Pits: Ventilation is crucial if you choose this option. Make sure your screened porch is tall enough to support it. If a fire pit is not practical, consider an outdoor fireplace because it keeps the fire safely contained and aesthetically is a great addition to your porch.
This type of window treatment is built with vinyl glazing. The panels will keep warm air in during the winter and heat out during the summer. Eze-Breeze® windows are far more economical than conventional windows and enable you to enjoy outdoor living in all seasons. Because they are made of vinyl, they are transparent and far less heavy than traditional windows. Plus, they are one-third the cost! Also, with spring on the way, they are great for combatting Atlanta-area pollen, saving you from inevitable build-up and clean-up required to rid yourself of that “lovely” yellow/green dusting.
