How can I make my sunroom cool?
Last Updated: 8th January, 2020
- Seal up leaks in the frames. Use a clear caulk or add weatherstripping around the frames to prevent air from leaking.
- Tint the windows. Tinting reduces the intensity of sunlight, minimizes glare, and helps block the sun's ultraviolet rays, which can fade furniture.
- Cover the windows.
- Add a ceiling fan.

How to Keep a Sunroom Cool in the Summer
- Increasing airflow in your sunroom will help cool it in the summer. You will need some type of ventilation openings high in the room, so when the heat rises, it can escape.
- Use window tinting to block solar gain.
- Install blinds to block out the heat from the sun.
One may also ask, do sunrooms get too hot? One of the reason sunrooms get so hot is because most windows aren't designed to open. This is more something you would do during the installation process, but choosing windows that open can allow for fresh air to flow through the room and help it feel cooler than a sunroom with no ventilation.
