I agree with Mark Gallagher, an appraiser would need to look at what your current property includes.  It's not just a matter of converting a 10' X 10' Florida room to a family room but what "contributory value" it adds to the existing house.  If you already have an adequate house (same type and quality features as competing properties for sale in the neighborhood) and none of them have converted their Florida rooms to livable space you probably don't want to either unless you plan to stay for awhile.  On the other hand if your home is smaller than most of the neighboring properties and converting the Florida room will bring it to neighborhood norms without spending more than the increased market value, you may want to convert the space.  An appraiser's opinion is probably needed.

I agree, not enough to justify the cost.
Your Florida room is livable space correct?

If you are curious about the increase in an 'appraisal value', I would ask an appraiser. Here is a list - call around and find a local one, Im sure they would do it for free...

Unless you need the extra space, live in an area where it cold or wet all the time or just hate seeing the outdoors and don't have a family room; I wouldn't.

Most buyers would like the sun room, I would even guess it was a factor in you buying the house.

That might be tough to determine. Do you already have a family room and this would be an additional family room?

Without seeing what your current setup is or what you're planning on doing, if you keep the renovation costs under $10K, it's likely you will gain $1 for $1 equity.
