Aqua Shield™ sunrooms are not only a modern alternative to traditional sun porches and patios, they are also a long-term investment that will end up saving homeowners money on their utility bills. While both our Rainbow and Sunrise Sunroom Models will help lower energy costs, the Rainbow model is equipped with a twin wall polycarbonate glazing, making it the optimum choice for energy savings. This technology cannot be found in any of the other traditional patio enclosure kits New York residents have probably seen in the past. Our units go beyond the commonplace to help owners save more than ever on utility charges.
The twin wall polycarbonate glazing our Rainbow sunrooms come equipped with provides maximum energy savings by reflecting unwanted heat in the hotter months and retaining the desired heat during the cooler times of year. Because our sunrooms assist in keeping out unwanted heat so well, homeowners can enjoy spending time with family and friends in their backyard patio areas while remaining in a cool and comfortable environment. Owners can position our sunroom over swimming pool or spa units as well, leveraging its unparalleled heat deflection to save money on both refilling and reheating charges.
Although it is not often associated as being a prime consideration when thinking about pool or spa upkeep, refilling pool and spa water is a necessity in maintaining the entire pump system. Evaporation is a pool or spa owner’s biggest enemy when it comes to combating these dangerous low water levels. It might be easier for previous or current pool owners to believe, but an average size pool can lose up to ten gallons of water per day due to evaporation if the air temperature is just six degrees higher than the water temperature. This factor is compounded in larger pools, as they can lose more than twenty-five gallons of water in a single day, which take quite a bit of refilling in order to constantly stay at a safe level. Since the twin wall polycarbonate glaze on our Rainbow sunrooms help reflect this evaporative heat, more than any sunroom New York residents are probably used to, the patented unit will aid in mitigating water costs, even when the national price per gallon is on the rise.
Conversely, sometimes holding on to the heat is the challenge, like when the party’s attitude is calling for a pool or spa day but the weather is not agreeing. Even when the climate is unwelcoming, Aqua Shield™ sunrooms are so good at retaining heat that pool and spa users will be able to swim or soak comfortably even in the rain or snow. This is where the Rainbow sunroom’s abilities to save homeowners on utility bills are really flexed, because the heat provided from central home units, as well as those used to warm the water of a pool or spa, is not instantly lost to cold outside conditions. In fact, Aqua Shield™ sunrooms can reduce energy costs anywhere from fifty to seventy-five percent annually for certain homeowners.
Aqua Shield™ sunrooms are not only a new and fashionable alternative to traditionally built sun porches or patio covers, they are also long-term investments that will save homeowners money on utility costs and provide countless hours of quality time with family and friends.
