What options do I have for heating and cooling my sunroom?

Do you have a sunroom that is never used? Did you know that you have several options for both heating and cooling your sunroom? Not only can you start enjoying more square footage in your own home, but you can also add value to your property by adding a heating and cooling system to your sunroom. Here are a few options to help you maintain just the right temperature in your sunroom:

Central Heating and Air Conditioning Systems for Sunrooms

Does your home currently have an existing HVAC system? If so, there is a simple solution for adding heating and air to your sunroom.  You could add a vent to the sunroom and extend your existing ductwork to reach the sunroom.  This way the temperature in your sunroom can remain consistent with the temperature in your home. This is a nice option because you simply control the temperature of your home, sunroom included, all with the same thermostat.

Ductless Mini Splits for Sunrooms

In some cases, the existing HVAC system in your home may not be powerful enough to maintain the addition of a sunroom.  If so, a ductless mini split is a great option for maintain heat and air in your sunroom.  Ductless mini splits are similar to a central heating and cooling unit. Mini splits can be hung on a wall or a ceiling. They are much smaller in size and can, easy to install, and energy efficient. They even come in a variety of models including some designed to look like a picture hanging on the wall.

Portable Heating and Air Conditioning Units for Sunrooms

If you do not like the idea of a permanently mounted mini split, a third option for heating and cooling your sunroom is a portable unit.  Portable heating and cooling units are sometimes used to cool and heat sunrooms. Unlike a window unit, they do not protrude from the outside of a window leading to a more aesthetically pleasing exterior to your sunroom.  These units require a small window that can vent the air as well as a nearby outlet to plug into.
