With the summer months in full swing, keeping your sunroom cool is crucial to enjoying it
all summer long. One way to keep your sunroom cool is to extend your existing HVAC
system. Set up a consultation with Brinson and Sons to access whether or not your
sunroom is big enough to accommodate it.
Another way you can keep your sunroom cool is by insulating and/or tinting your doors
and windows. This will keep the cool air in as well as the hot summer air out. Tinting the
windows will reduce the sunlight coming in, but depending on the look you are going for,
tinting could be a viable option for you. You can also install blinds on your windows to open
and close at will. This will block the sun from coming directly into the sunroom and heating
The last simple tip is installing a ceiling fan. This will circulate the air without having to
extend your HVAC system. Paired with insulated windows and doors, the cool air from the
fan will not escape, keeping your sunroom cool and pleasant during the summer.
Even in the cold weather, a sunroom can still be a pleasant place to enjoy an afternoon. In
order to keep the space warm enough to enjoy it, you can simply add a space heater. If you
already have your windows and doors insulated, enjoying the space with heat that stays in
is super easy and inexpensive. You can also install a mini split unit in your sunroom. This
will allow you to heat and cool all year.
Another way you can keep your sunroom warm in the winter is by putting down a thick
carpet. This will keep the cold air from coming in from the floor. It will also help keep your
sunroom cool in the summer as a thick carpet will help keep the warm air from coming
through the floor as well.
Lastly, installing a fireplace in your sunroom will help keep your sunroom pleasantly warm
in the winter. You will be able to enjoy the heat of a fire while also enjoying the view of a
wintery yard. A fireplace will hold through the summer as well, allowing you to continue
using it every winter.
