Sunrooms are a beautiful, comfortable addition to any home. Enjoying outdoor views and warm sunshine in a controlled climate — who doesn’t love it? However, you do have a few things to consider when it comes to keeping your sunroom cozy in the summertime heat. Check out our pointers below.
Extending HVAC Vents
If you decide to extend HVAC vents into your sunroom, you’ll want to have a Middleton professional ensure that your unit can take on the additional space. If your unit is too small, it won’t be able to take on the extra square footage while keeping the rest of your home comfortable as well. You may want to upgrade to a larger unit, especially if it’s been over 10 years since your unit was last replaced.
If your air conditioning unit can’t handle the extra space, and you decide against replacing it, a mini-split is a good option. Portable air conditioning units are also available, but these can be bulky and use up quite a bit of energy. You can also install a ceiling fan or two to help circulate the air in the sunroom.
Tinting and Window Covers
Adding adjustable curtains or drapes around the room can significantly help when it comes to keeping the space cool. You have full control over how much sunlight you let in, and have the power to completely block the sun out when you aren’t spending time in the sunroom. You also have the option to tint your windows, which will allow sunlight to heat up the space while reducing the uncomfortable glare.
