The primary difference between a three-season room and full four-season sunroom is the comfort level of the room during the winter months. While a four-season room has complete insulation, glass and a heating unit that can keep the room at room temperature even during the winter months, a three-season room is typically built without these added features (and added costs).
If you live in Baltimore County, Howard County, Harford County, or anywhere in Maryland, your decision to build a three-season room, screened porch, or an uncovered deck should be based on how you plan to make use of the space. For many Maryland homeowners, a three-season room lets you enjoy everything you love about the outdoors during the spring, summer and fall. While the room will not be heated and insulated during winter, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your three-season room during these months. It will simply be more of a true outdoor space, like a screened-in porch or deck.

The Maryland Climate – Three-Season Rooms
A three-season room is designed to be comfortable during the spring, summer and fall months, but does not have built-in insulation or HVAC to keep it at room temperature during the coldest winter temperatures. One of the benefits of a screened porch or three-season room over a full four-season room is in the cost. Because there is no built-in insulation and your home’s HVAC does not need to be routed into the new space, you save considerably expense and construction time when building a three-season room. In Maryland, where temperatures can stay in the 50s and 60s even in November and March, there are not many days of the year where you’ll be sacrificing the use of your three-season room.
