Installing spinaways is one of the ways to increase your shed’s cooling powers. Spinaways are relatively cheap and they draw hot air out of your shed using wind power. Without such a system, hot air can gather in your shed roof and the temperature inside is raised.
The advantage of spinaways is that they are cost-effective because of not being powered by electricity. But this also means that they won’t operate if the weather is breezy.
Glazed Windows and Shading
Window glazing is another great option to keep your barn or a garage cooler. Glazed windows reduce heating produced by sunshine while increasing access to natural cooling breezes and enhance ventilation inside your shed.
For the maximum heat reducing, you can add some extra shading to your windows, such as sails, awnings and outdoor blinds.
Ceiling fans provide the overall cooling in your barn or a garage. Quality industrial fans are provided with high-speed operations and some of them even with the reversible rotations, so you can either draw hot air up or blow it down. With the ceiling fans, you will not only reduce the desired amount of air conditioning, but you will also save on energy bills.
Air conditioning is one more way to cool your shed in hot seasons. This type of reducing heat transfers the hot air outside the shed relying on the chemicals. Air conditioning is a little more expensive option, as it is more energy intensive. But, this is the option that allows you to quickly get the temperature you need.
Natural shading probably is the cheapest way to cool your shed in summer and keep the energy costs much lower. Natural shading is the natural shelter for a shed provided by planting trees and bushes. The effectiveness of this type of shading much depends on the location and the size of your shed.
