How to Keep Your Sunroom at a Comfortable Temperature Year-Round

For most of the year here in central Florida, the weather is pleasant and warm, making a sunroom the perfect place for lazy afternoons. However, on summer’s hottest days, that glass sunroom may feel more like an oven than an oasis. You don’t have to retreat indoors because of the heat. Instead, use our tips to keep your sunroom’s temperature mild and enjoyable all year:

Consider Your Colors

When decorating your sunroom for each season, think about the colors you plan to use and how they will affect the ambient temperature in the room. Remember that lighter colors reflect more sunlight and can cool down a space, while darker colors will absorb and trap heat instead.

Pull the Shades

Add window shades to your sunroom to only allow sunlight in when you want it. Shades come in a variety of colors and levels of light filtering to suit all tastes. Be sure to get retractable shades so you can pull them up when you want to let the sun’s rays in.

Add Some Fans

Adding a few fans to your sunroom is a great way to get that stale warm air moving around and bring the temperature down. Ceiling fans are a popular choice that can easily be added to many sunrooms. When ceiling fans aren’t an option, though, strategically placed wall-mounted or floor fans are just as efficient. Fans can be finished in any color to complement your style!

Bring in an AC

When shades and fans just won’t cut it, break out the big guns with a portable AC unit. These powerful appliances can be moved anywhere, plug into a standard outlet, and provide a blast of cool, fresh air whenever you need it. Portable AC units can be the best option for those brutally hot summer days.
