In addition to supplying natural light, windows can help provide fresh airflow and remove stale air in a room. Without that crucial airflow, rooms with no windows can become disproportionately hot, stuffy, and uncomfortable compared to the rest of the house. Whether it’s a basement, office space, man cave, entertainment room, garage, storage space, or used for anything else — our AC company believes you should still be able to enter your windowless room without discomfort from the heat. Below, we outline four easy and effective ways to cool down a room.

Use Two Fans To Circulate Air

One of the easiest ways to cool any room is to ensure air is circulating throughout the space sufficiently. By using two strategically placed fans, it’s possible to mimic natural airflow in a room. If you face one fan toward the ceiling and the doorway, the fans will circulate the hot air on the ceiling out of the doorway. This simple trick can help funnel warm, stale air out of the room.

Install A Ceiling Fan

If you don’t want to set up two fans in your windowless room, you should consider installing a ceiling fan. While a ceiling fan isn’t technically a cooling device, it can help keep the room cool by circulating air. Fortunately, ceiling fans are easy enough to install. On particularly hot days, you can leave the windowless room’s door open and run the fan to push hot air out and pull hot air in.

Install A Mini-Split AC

Ductless mini-split air conditioners work exactly like central air conditioners, just without ductwork. The only thing you need to do is install an outdoor unit and an indoor unit connected by refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring. In addition, you can mount the indoor unit on your wall, but it will have to be connected to the outdoor unit on an exterior wall. An HVAC technician with Bloomington Heating & Air can install a new AC unit or ductless mini-split AC in your home or business. Contact us today to schedule service!

Replace Incandescent Light Bulbs

Incandescent light bulbs give off a considerable amount of heat. The temperature in a room can be slightly lowered by replacing incandescent lights with LED lights or lamps. It’s not just the temperature that will be lowered when you replace incandescent lights with LED lights, but you’ll also save money on your electricity bill!
