As the summer heat rolls in, it’s important to find ways to keep your shed cool and comfortable, especially if you use it for storage, workspace, or as a retreat. Excessive heat can damage items stored inside and make it unbearable to spend time in your shed. In this blog post, we will explore practical and effective tips to help you beat the summer heat and keep your shed cool and enjoyable throughout the season.
  1. Get SilverTech & TechShield: Our Performance Buildings come with SilverTech on the interior roof and walls of our buildings which can bring the inside temperature down 5-8 degrees. Our Premier Buildings are fully equipped with LP TechShield radiant heat barrier on the roof and walls which can lower the temperature from 15 to 18 degrees.
  2. Insulate Your Shed: If you are going to finish out your shed, extra insulation is a great way to keep cool in the hottest months. We offer closed-cell foam insulation on all of our buildings, which can reduce the heat in your shed by 20%. Rolled insulation can be another great financial option, but you have to make sure you also put a moisture barrier on the walls as foam insulation has a tendency to sweat during the summer.
  3. Purchase a Window Air Conditioning Unit: If you purchased a building with a window, a window air conditioning unit can be a game changer for keeping your building cool. You may be using your shed as your workshop or a she-shed. Whatever the reason, air conditioning will keep you comfortable and cool so you can get all your activities done. A great unit that won’t break the budget can be found here: (Note: Make sure your electrical package can handle the wattage.)
  4. Use Light-Colored Exterior Finishes: We offer a wide variety of paint colors and urethane stains. Choosing a light-colored paint or siding for the exterior of your shed. Light colors reflect sunlight rather than absorbing it, helping to keep the temperature inside lower. Avoid dark colors that can trap heat and make the shed hotter.
  5. Get a Great Fan: Sometimes the simplest answer is the correct one. If you do not have an air conditioning unit, the best thing you can do is get a great fan to get proper air circulation in your shed. We recommend this fan as it packs a punch, but it doesn’t break the bank.
The summer can be brutal, but that doesn’t mean your time in your building should be that way. With these practical tips, you can keep your shed cool and comfortable during the scorching summer months. Keep cool and make your time way more enjoyable.
