Best Heating and Cooling Options for a Sunroom

A sun room can be a beautiful addition to any home. It offers a great space to entertain or ends up making for the perfect room to relax in by yourself in just about any season, if you can heat and cool it properly. Here at Day & Nite Plumbing and Heating, we have extensive experience handling all of the HVAC needs of our customers. While the sun room might provide a bit of a challenge, we have the solutions that can keep it comfortable all year round.

Window Unit

If you’re trying to cool down a sunroom, a simple window A/C unit could work in some instances. If your current HVAC system doesn’t reach into your sun room, a window air conditioning unit could effectively cool the room. If you go with this option, just keep a few things in mind. A window air conditioning unit wouldn’t be connected to the rest of your system, so you’d need to turn it on yourself every time you want to use the room. Because of that it may take a little while to get cool. The presence of a separate window A/C unit could also up your electric bill by a small amount each month.

Space Heater

If you want to make your sun room a bit warmer, a space heater could work in the place of a larger heating unit. They’re cost-effective and simple to use, but they do have a couple of drawbacks. Like the window air conditioning unit, it’s not connected to the rest of your HVAC equipment so it needs to be turned on manually each time you would like to use it. It could also take some extra time to get your sunroom warm. Depending on the size of your sun room though, a space heater could be a solid option.

Expanded HVAC Vents

This is more expensive than buying a space heater or window unit, but it can be a far more effective way to heat or cool your sunroom. Expanding your HVAC vents into your sunroom could end up being worth the extra work. It connects your sunroom to the rest of your home’s HVAC system, which provides a few benefits.

First, you wouldn’t have to worry about manually turning on a heater or air conditioning unit every time you enter your sunroom. You’ve already set your HVAC system to keep your home at a certain temperature, so now your sunroom is going to be at a comfortable temperature as well. You also don’t have to worry about extra electric bills from a standalone heater or A/C unit. Another benefit is that your sunroom can benefit from any “smart” technology that you’re using in your home, like a programmable thermostat. You just need to make sure that your current equipment can handle cooling or warming the extra space.

Ductless Heating and Cooling

Going ductless for your sunroom can also be a great idea. A ductless heat pump usually includes an outdoor air compressor and an indoor wall unit. They’re the efficient option for single rooms or entire buildings, potentially making ductless equipment the ideal way to keep your sun room comfortable.

We had a great experience with Day and Nite from start to finish. Chris was great at the no obligation consult. He explained things clearly and covered everything but didn’t waste our time. They also provided lots of options and thoroughly explained them but never tried to push or up-sell us. Installation was fast and very professional. We will definitely be using Day and Nite in the future.

I had the privilege to meet Zach on two separate occasions within a two week span. He was upfront and honest about the work that needed to be done. He is a hard-working, dedicated, professional employee of Day and Nite Plumbing. He explained what needed to be done. I asked questions and he was patient and explained things further so that I truly understood.

D. Lee

The technician was great: he knew exactly what the problem was and fixed it quickly and efficiently. Even when a glitch happened in the repair, he was totally prepared to handle the situation. I will definitely contact Day & Nite Plumbing for future problems. Thank you!

S. Lippold

Outstanding Service! Scheduler was pleasant and receptive. Technician (Collin) communicated well, arrived in the agreed upon time frame, diagnosed the problem and fixed the issue quickly. Previously, we had two other companies misdiagnose the problem and one company stand us up for a scheduled appointment. If we have plumbing issues in the future, Day & Night Plumbing will be our first call !

D. Campbell

Very pleased with the professional technician, Donavan, who came out when our water heater quit working. This was the third major problem with this water heater, so we took his advice and replaced it. Thankfully, he was able to also install the new one right away. I had confidence in his advice and ability to do the job. He was thorough and friendly. It was a five star experience. I highly recommend.

M. Lindell

Collin was our tech and he was very knowledgeable answered our questions and what they charged was very reasonable and we are very happy to have water again. I was really impressed by everyone that we dealt with they all were professional and helpful.
