Increase Insulation and Add Window Tint
There are a few ways to make sure that your room is well insulated. The first is to make sure that you add heavy carpeting to the floor to keep heat trapped. You can also hang curtains that designed to trap any heat from the sun during the day. Around windows be sure to add weather stripping to make sure that they are extra secure against cold winds. Even a window tint can make sure that heat does not travel back out and instead becomes trapped in your sunroom.
Use a Space Heater
It may not seem like much, but a portable space heater can be a powerful tool in a Sunroom. Most units are able to heat a space within an hour and depending on the size less than that. The heater gives off warmth and can come with extra features such a timer that makes sure it shuts off after a certain amount of time. They are easy to use and come in portable sizes with multiple heat settings. If you only prefer to use the room sparingly, a space heater can provide maximum comfort on a limited budget.
IF you prefer a more realistic model, then you may consider having an electric fireplace installed instead. It works similarly to a space heater and can transform the Sunroom into a cozier space, suitable for longer stays.
Extend HVAC Vents
You can also extend your system vents into the sunroom. It will help it year-round with making your heating and cooling more efficient without having to change to much to accommodate the room layout.
This should not be taken on by yourself, make sure to call a professional first to see if there may be any unforeseen problems and get an estimate on how much you can save.
