My house backs up to a busy street and I had T&D enclose my Lanai with double Pane low E windows insulation in the ceiling and Solar film.
did not raise the floor. We leave the double doors open all the time and temp is about 2 degrees higher than rest of house, and there is NO noise from traffic. T&D did a great Job!

We met a man that owns a glass company and He had nothing to do with our install. He told us that it wasn’t worth the money for double pain here. We did single pain and the split very happy.

Same here and no regrets. Sooner or later you will need to add a mini split system if you are here full time in order to get full benefit out of your lanai regardless of whether you put in single or double pane.

Do you remember putting you hand on a single pane window in the winter up north? It's just the opposite in the summer down here.

I did not believe it would work. I am still amazed. We do have air coming from the pool bath which feeds into the room and we can open the sliders to very wide and the double doors as well. Ours cost more and I am tight and I didn't want to spend the extra (almost double) My husband prevailed. I am glad he did.

We sold one of our grandchildren.
I have had the same experience with double pane Lanai stayed comfortable without air conditioning.

Currently moved to a home with single pane and area is not comfortable without cooling and will be installing a split system.

Yes, you can go without the split unit but then your ac has to work much harder due to the increased space that it was Not designed to cool. Result, you will need to replace it much sooner then it’s original life span and at much, Much higher cost.

Why would it be at a much higher cost?
