Keep Your Sunroom Cool This Spring and Summer

Keep Your Sunroom Cool This Spring and Summer

We have provided some tips on how you can keep your sunroom cool in the hottest months of the year.

Having a sunroom in your Western New York home gives you an additional space to enjoy the sun and outdoors in the warmer months of the year. Not only do sunrooms allow you to feel like you are outside while avoiding the bugs, they add an extra living space for you to use to entertain and enjoy. Your sunroom may be less than enjoyable if you don’t keep your sunroom cool this spring and summer. When it gets really hot, you should still be able to enjoy your sunroom.

We have provided some tips on how you can keep your sunroom cool in the hottest months of the year.  

Extend your Central Air Conditioning

The best way to keep your sunroom cool this spring and summer is to extend your central air conditioning to the room. If your home currently uses ductwork for heating and cooling, then extending your ductwork to your sunroom is a good option. By broadening your ductwork to your sunroom, you can have your entire home on the same cooling system.

If you don’t want to cool your sunroom when it is not in use, you can set the thermostat in the room to a higher temperature to keep your energy bills lower. HVAC professionals can help you create zones throughout your home.

Install a Ductless System

A ductless cooling systems can help you keep your sunroom cool this spring and summer. Ductless systems are versatile, efficient, and reliable HVAC systems. Ductless mini-split systems are perfect for homes without exiting ductwork and for sunrooms.

Ductless systems are a good option for sunrooms as they can be wall or ceiling mounted. These systems can be as discreet or as stylish as you want them to be. Ductless systems may be costly to install, so be sure to talk to your HVAC professional to determine if this option is right for you.

Use a Portable Air Conditioning Unit

Portable air conditioning units can be used to cool your sunroom. A portable unit works like a window air conditioner, in that it is not a permanent fixture and installation is rather simple. Unlike window units, portable units do not protrude from a window; they only need a small window space so they can vent the air, along with an outlet nearby.

Portable air conditioners are inexpensive and easy to install. The disadvantage of a portable unit is that most of them are bulky and can take up floor space in your sunroom. With a portable unit it is also difficult to get the room to the exact temperature you prefer, especially in the extremely hot times of the year in Western New York.

Put in Ceiling Fans

Installing a ceiling fan or fans in your sunroom can help keep it cool this spring and summer. A ceiling fan can create a breeze and cool down the room a bit.

Keep in mind, with a ceiling fan, the room is likely to never get much cooler than the outside air, as you are simply circulating it around. Ceiling fans will not remove the humidity or cool the room to the same temperatures as an air conditioning unit would.
