5 Ways to Keep Your Mobile Home Cool


When you are a mobile homeowner, you might imagine that your only choice when it comes to keeping your living space cool and comfortable is to use strategically placed fans. This is especially true if you are part of a Homeowners Association that won’t allow you to have a central air conditioner installed. Fortunately, you actually do have options, and our team is here to help you go through them.

We provide trustworthy and professional mobile home cooling services throughout the greater Cedar Rapids area, and we look forward to helping you keep your mobile home as cool and comfortable as possible. We also can help improve your indoor air quality, and help with your plumbing and electrical needs too!

As for how to make sure you’re doing everything you can to cool off your mobile home, read on!

Consider an Insulation Upgrade

It may seem odd to think about insulation during this time of the year. After all, insulation is something that’s used in the wintertime to keep spaces warm, right?

Well, sort of. You see, insulation is put in place to prevent heat transfer. This means that just as it can keep heat inside during the winter, it can help keep the heat outside during the summer. Therefore, you may need more or better quality insulation to keep your mobile home cool this summer.

That’s right, you may not even have the right type of insulation. This is why it’s especially important to work with seasoned HVAC professionals such as ourselves, to ensure you and your family have optimal comfort.

Keep Your Home Dry

Moisture, otherwise known as humidity, can create havoc for a mobile home, as it can lead to mold growth and subsequent health and property problems. Humidity is also a beast because it makes you feel warmer, no matter what the temperature actually reads as on your thermostat.

Therefore, it’s important to dehumidify your home during the summer months. This can help make things considerably more comfortable for you.

Make it Shady

Do you have south-facing windows in your mobile home? This creates areas in your household that get a lot of direct sunlight during the warmest parts of the day. But not to worry! We actually have three tips in one for this cooling tip–

First, plant trees! If your HOA will allow, trees can create just the right amount of shade you need. Second, install awnings on your property. And lastly, consider putting up blinds and blackout shades as your window treatments, and keep them closed during the hottest parts of the day.

Use Fans!

While fans cannot lower the temperature of the room, they can better circulate the air, and when used in combination with a mobile home cooling system, it can help you feel cooler!

Schedule a Professional Installation of a Mobile Home Cooling System

That brings us to our final tip–contact our team to have a mobile home cooling system professionally installed. These systems are specifically designed for your type of home, and we can help ensure that you’re matched up with the right system for your specific needs.
