Summeris here, and if you have a sunroom, you’re probably looking forward to spendingtime in it. Sunrooms are great spaces to spend time with family and friends orjust to relax with a good book. They also let in tons of light and warmth whichis great in the winter but can make it unbearable during the summer months.Below are some ways you can help cool your sunroom to ensure a summer ofenjoyment.
Install a ceiling fan. A ceiling fan circulates the air and cools your skin. Makesure your ceiling fan is rotating in a counterclockwise direction during thesummer months. The counterclockwise rotation creates a cool downward airflowthat accelerates the evaporation of perspiration, making users feel as if theroom is several degrees cooler without actually altering the temperature.
Utilize sunroom blinds. Blinds provide not only privacy for your sunroom but canalso keep the room cooler. They reduce the amount of direct sunlight cominginto your sunroom by deflecting it back outside. Blinds are best used alongwith a ceiling fan, as residual heat can get trapped between the glass and theblinds.
Add tinting to windows. You can add tinting to the panes of glass in your sunroomwindows, which will block the amount of sunlight coming in. Unfortunately, thisalso blocks the bright, beautiful sunlight which was probably the reason youhave a sunroom in the first place.
Install a ductless mini-split system. The best option for cooling your sunroom is a ductless mini-split system, which utilizes a wall mounted unit independent of yourhome’s current heating and cooling system. It allows you to cool (or heat) yoursunroom without the expense of additional ductwork or extra components requiredto tie into your existing system. You’ll be able to provide precisetemperature control,resulting in the greatest efficiency and comfort.
