The Best Way to Cool Older Homes

September 5, 2019

There are many older homes that don’t have central air conditioning. This can make it difficult to keep a building cool during the hot summer months. However, there are many ways you can keep an older home comfortable. Here’s three.

1. Mini-Split Air Conditioners

Mini-split systems are often referred to as ductless air conditioners. They are small units that are mounted high on the wall of different rooms in your home. Because they are highly energy efficient, they can be an eco-friendly way to cool a home. They’ll also let you set up different temperature zones in your home so that various rooms can be unique temperatures.

2. Shades and Curtains

Keeping the direct rays of sun out of your home is an easy way to keep the temperature low. When the sun is shining, use a set of quality shades or blinds to block it from entering rooms. If it’s cool out in the mornings and evenings, open your windows to encourage airflow.

3. Window AC Units

Window AC units aren’t very energy efficient, but they are great for cooling specific rooms in a home. They are mounted in the window of a room and don’t take up a lot of space. Portable air conditioners can also be placed in strategic points around a home.

4. Swamp Coolers

For regions that have low humidity, swamp coolers are a great option for cooling a home. They use the principle of evaporative cooling to remove heat from the air in your home.
