Keeping Your Sunroom at a Comfortable Temperature Year-Round

Here in sunny Florida, we enjoy pleasant weather for the majority of the year. With average temperatures from the 60s to the mid-80’s all year, Florida is definitely a destination for warm-weather lovers. However, during the summer months, temps can soar up into the high 90s during the day. This can be problematic for a glass-enclosed sunroom, where all that heat can make you feel like you’re in an oven.

So how do you keep your sunroom cool and comfortable when it’s hot outside?

Use Lighter Colors

We’ve all heard that white reflects light while black absorbs it, and you’ll see this principle of physics at work if you use dark colors for your sunroom decor. Darker colors trap heat inside your sunroom, increasing the ambient temperature and making it quite uncomfortable on hotter days. Instead, opt for lighter shades of white and pastels when decorating your sunroom. This includes any fabrics or furniture, but also includes things like paint, shades, and even exterior colors.
