What is a “Thermal” Sunroom?
A thermal sunroom is a room specifically engineered
to help control the interior environment of your sunroom
for maximum comfort during the seasons of use. The “thermal” protection
is primarily provided by the type and amount of insulation
within the wall and roof systems, working together with high-quality
window systems and other engineering. TEMO Sunrooms
uses industry-leading 2-lb high-density Expanded Polystyrene,
recognized as the
most effective and durable insulation material in sunrooms.
A TEMO thermal sunroom also means that you can
use it longer through the seasons. The options in wall systems
to help you select the room that meets your expectations
for use and geographical requirements, without paying for
more than you require. TEMO sunrooms are
designed to provide 3-season use, or extended-season use.
TEMO sunrooms meet or exceed all national
engineering codes – and
go a step beyond.
most defining feature is its windows. TEMO windows are
AAMA Gold Label Certified! Only the best win the gold.
TEMO’s standard single-pane and double-pane
IG windows offer industry-leading performance in the ways
that matter most to you, backed by AMMA Gold Label Certification.
AAMA Gold Label Certification assures you that TEMO windows
- Built with durable sash-to-glass construction
- Air and water tight
- Secure against intruders
- Easy to operate
To achieve this prestigious and rare recognition, TEMO windows
passed 6 demanding tests by the nation’s leading independent
testing organization – The American Architectural Manufacturers
3-Season & Extended-Season
Our standard room provides superior insulation in the walls
for strength and resistance against cold, but does not
contain additional structural engineering to include a
thermal break. A thermal break is an additional barrier
engineered into the wall that helps stop the transfer of
outside cold from penetrating through the walls and into
the room, providing maximum possible protection from the
Non-permanent supplemental heating or cooling can provide
additional climate control. All supplemental heating should
be electric-based, as in electric baseboard heat, or electric
simulated fireplaces. All fossil fuel burning systems (such
as wood-burning heat generators) add moisture to the air,
which can produce condensation on windows. Condensation naturally
occurs when moist indoor air touches window glass that has
been cooled by cold outdoor temperatures.
All TEMO rooms utilize an exclusive thermal roof that contributes
additional insulation performance, and overall structural
An extended-season room provides use throughout all seasons
of the year, but does not mean that non-permanent supplemental
heating or cooling may not be necessary. An extended-season
sunroom means that all elements of the room work together
to hold out colder temperatures through more days throughout
the entire year and keep the room comfortable longer. These
elements include the thermal roof, high-performance window
systems and wall system, with its insulation and thermal
break, and thermal break in the base channel. With an extended-season
room, the warmth of a sunny winter day may provide all the
heat that is necessary for daytime enjoyment.
However, non-permanent supplemental heat may be required
to make the room comfortable during the evening, or on a
particularly cold and cloudy winter day. All supplemental
heating should be electric-based, as in electric baseboard
heat, or electric simulated fireplaces. All wood-burning
heat generators add moisture to the air, which can produce
condensation on windows. Condensation naturally occurs when
moist indoor air touches window glass cooled by outdoor temperatures.
The maximum insulation properties of the window systems
used in our 306-SPF85 contribute to the extended seasonal
use of the sunroom. HPG 2000 w/ SPF 85 (Solar Protection
- double-pane I.G. window system, providing maximum-duty
protection against heat/cold transfer and solar UV penetration.
The 406-CCT85 is a thermally
broken, double-pane insulated window unit that provides superior
resistance against cold transferring from the outside to
the room’s interior. In addition, it is designed to
keep winter’s desirable warmth inside the room.
