Some people have rooms in their homes that don’t have windows. Cooling is a common challenge for these areas, especially when temperatures outside are high. Windows help cool spaces down by providing ventilation and airflow, contributing to your indoor comfort. Fortunately, there are a number of ways you can cool down a room without windows.
Here are tips for cooling down a windowless room from a trusted air conditioning installation company.
Use LED lights instead of incandescent ones. Compared to LED lights, incandescent bulbs produce more heat. Replacing incandescent lights with LEDs will help reduce the temperature in a windowless room. This simple switch will also help you save on energy costs.
Turn off unused appliances and lights. Turning off appliances and lights when you’re not using them, especially during the hottest parts of the day, will help reduce the room’s temperature as well. If you have multiple appliances and lights turned on at the same time, this will cause the room to heat up; even more so if it doesn’t have windows.
Use the two-fan method. One trick heating and air conditioning experts suggest is using two fans to create natural airflow in a room without windows. Place one fan outside the room, facing the doorway, and position the second fan across from it pointing up toward the ceiling. The placement of the fans will help circulate air around the room and push it through the doorway.
Invest in a ductless air conditioner. A ductless mini-split system can be used in more than one room. They’re not only small, but also operate quietly. Because of the size of this equipment, it can be installed practically anywhere in your home. It also features individual zoning, which means you can limit cooling to the rooms you’re actually using.
