Best Tips for Cooling a Sunroom

sunroom with fan

A sunroom is a fantastic place for you, your family, and friends to gather to watch a football game, play a board game or just enjoy each other’s company. The good and the bad part of a sunroom is the “sun” part. There’s nothing like being surrounded by natural light, but the heat that the sun produces can be off-putting, and there’s nothing worse than being so hot to the point of uncomfortable. To help combat this problem, we’ve provided a list of some easy solutions you can try!

Add some greenery

This isn’t something that will make a huge difference overnight. But, if you plant a couple of trees outside of your sunroom, they will grow and eventually provide natural shade for your favorite space. This will ensure that you will not be directly battered by the sun’s heat while also giving you something to look at outside!

Expand your central A/C system

Getting air to flow into the sunroom is going to be the best way to keep the area functional all summer long. The good thing is, there are many ways you can do this. One way is by expanding the HVAC vents for your A/C unit. You will need to make sure your current HVAC unit can take on the task of cooling the extra space.

Fans are a must-have

Fans are cheap and efficient. They do an excellent job cooling down the warmest parts of your home by circulating the air causing a “wind chill” effect that can lower the temperature of a room by up to six degrees! Ceiling fans are going to be the best type of fan to install; however, a floor or oscillating fan will also help keep the room cool and comfortable.
