Porches are a great addition to any home, but an open porch in Maryland won’t get much use in the colder months. If you want to get the most out of your porch, you should consider a screened-in porch to enjoy year round, no matter the weather or temperature! Continue reading to learn about the benefits of a screened-in porch, and how to enjoy the porch all year round.
Warm Months- Ceiling Fan
We all love to enjoy the summer days outside in the sunshine, but sometimes, the sun is too hot, and we need to head indoors. Instead of spending your summer inside to hide from the sun, a screened-in porch allows you to enjoy the warmth without the sun damage! Since it will still be very hot, a ceiling fan allows you to have the best of both worlds, as you enjoy the sunshine without overheating.
Cold Months- Space Heater
During the cold months, we often hide away under the covers and end up craving some sunshine. A screened-in porch is a perfect way to get some fresh air and sunlight in the winter and fall, without feeling frozen. Include a space heater in your porch to create the perfect cozy room that the whole family can enjoy! As a reminder, look for heaters that are made for porches or outdoor areas to maintain a comfortable space, as well as a heater that stops running when they get too hot to avoid a fire hazard.
