Best Heating Options for a Sunroom

Having a warm indoor place to bask in natural sunlight- all year round- is just one of the benefits of adding a sunroom to your home. A sunroom also creates a great space for your plants to soak up the sun, even in the winter. But when the temperature drops, here are the best heating options for a sunroom:

A space heater

One of the cheapest, easiest ways to keep a sunroom warm during winter is installing a space heater. This is ideal for small and mid-sized sunrooms.

 

However, not all space heaters are created equal. There are space heaters that result in a significantly large electric bill, while some require professional installation. Sizes vary, too, so make sure that the space heater you choose is big enough to heat your sunroom.

Fireplace

Aside from installing a space heater, lighting up a fire is perfect for heating up small and mid-sized sunrooms.

 

A traditional wood-burning fireplace keeps you warm even if the electricity goes out, as long as you keep a supply of firewood handy. Thus, it keeps things simple, depending on the resources available to you.

 

Installing an electric fireplace is also an option, especially for tight places that can’t accommodate a big fireplace. Electric fireplaces are a quick way to heat a sunroom, and they’re more efficient than wood-burning fireplaces.


Maximized insulation

Insulation keeps heat from escaping the sunroom while keeping heating and cooling bills reasonable. It helps you get maximum enjoyment out of it, and save energy at the same time.

 

If you’re building a sunroom from scratch, it helps to work with an experienced contractor to ensure your sunroom is insulated properly. The space below the floor and above the ceiling, and between glass panes, must be insulated.

 

You may also install window weatherstripping to prevent heated air from escaping, and keep cold air from entering your home. If you choose to replace the windows in your sunroom, energy-efficient windows can improve your comfort.

A ceiling fan

Ceiling fans can’t heat your sunroom in the winter, but they help circulate the warm air that’s risen toward your ceiling so that anyone in the livable part of the sunroom can benefit from it.

Mini-split heating system

A mini-split is an excellent choice for heating a sunroom. It’s a ductless system, so you can heat up the sunroom without having to heat up the whole house.

 

A mini-split also operates quietly and efficiently. However, you have to choose the right size for your sunroom to get the most out of it.

Extending your heating vents

Extending your heating vents to the sunroom will allow you to control the heat from other parts of the house. A programmable thermostat helps save money by heating up the sunroom only when you’re using it.

 

A professional should verify first if your system can handle heating up an additional room.
