Your Texas sunroom could save energy without sacrificing style

“If you’re choosing tile for your sunroom, you want to choose the right material, and there are a lot of similarities between ceramics and stone,” says Mercedes Austin of Mercury Mosaics. “Stone works to save energy by absorbing heat and releasing it slowly,” she explains. “Ceramic tiles’ thermal mass greatly reduces the rate that they heat or cool down – used in homes this translates to gradual internal temperature changes, avoiding sharp changes.” And in turn, Austin explains this leads to more efficiency overall. “Furthermore, the life of tile versus other materials contributes to the longevity of a sunroom.”
