The Best Way to Cool Older Homes

For a home without a central duct and air conditioning system, keeping cool in the summer can seem like a challenge. Luckily, there are a variety of other ways you can keep temperatures inside low as it starts to get hot outside.

1. Add Insulation to Your Home

Many older homes without central air conditioning systems were built with a large amount of insulation. If your home isn’t well-insulated, large amounts of warm air can be entering through the walls and roof. The attic is the most important part of a home to keep well-insulated. This can help you control the temperature inside your home in both the summer and winter.

2. Install a Mini-Split System

Ductless mini-split air conditioners don’t need a central ducting system to work. Rather, they are wall-mounted units that can keep certain zones of your home cool. They are highly energy-efficient and allow you to cool various rooms to different temperatures. Since they are small and are mounted high on the wall, they don’t take up a lot of space in a building.

3. Have an In-Window Air Conditioner

In-window air conditioners are less energy-efficient than central units, but they are a great solution for cooling specific rooms. As they are mounted directly in a window, they don’t take up a lot of space.

4. Keep the Sun Out

Using curtains and shades to keep the direct rays of the sun out of your home can keep it cool. Keep your windows open whenever the outside air is cool and then close them when temperatures start to rise.
