How to Keep Your CT Sunroom Warm During the Winter

By fiderioandsons Jan 16, 2015

Winter is here, so it’s vital that all the rooms in your home are properly insulated and prepared for the cold temperatures. One room that’s often undervalued is the sun room. Despite what homeowners may hear from other sources, a sun room is supposed to be utilized in all seasons. Here are a few simple ways to keep your CT sunroom cozy during the winter.

Check Seals on Windows and Doors

To ensure that all of your interior heat remains inside, you want to sure that all of your windows and doors are sealed shut and work properly. You can buy self-stick rubber weather sealing at your local hardware store or online. Cut the strips at your desired length and then stick to the frame to close any gaps and keep out drafts.

Air and Ventilation

Maintain air movement by leaving on a fan to constantly circulate air into the space. Ventilation is needed to remove stale moisture from the CT sunroom and replace it with fresh air from the outside. Another option is simply opening the window to ensure air in the sunroom is replaced regularly.

Clean Eaves

There’s leaves and other debris that can clog up the drainage on your CT sunroom’s troughs. Clear these areas so moisture such as snow and room can flow off of the room efficiently.

Check Heat Trace

On most sunrooms, there’s a reflective coating that reflects all of the sun’s rays outward and melts the snow that falls onto it. The snow will flow into the eaves troughs to be directed off of the roof and for this to happen consistently, the heat trace – the cord inside of the eaves troughs – needs to work properly. Before any snow arrives, plug the heat trace cord in and check that it’s warm along the path.
