One of the greatest benefits of adequately cooling your basement is that it will help to keep the rest of your home cool. Not only will it will result in a comfortable home environment, but air conditioning will keep moisture and mold from invading a basement space.

Budget-friendly options for cooling a basement include installing window air conditioning units. Depending on the size of a basement, you may need more than one unit to sufficiently cool the space.

Other low-cost options include floor fans or a box fan. Box fans will also fit into an open window and help to push warm basement air to the outside. Ceiling fans can be a worthwhile investment for a homeowner who is seeking a more permanent solution. Installation, however, will require some electrical work that may be best left in the hands of a professional.

If you are looking to install basement air conditioning, then proper insulation, ventilation and ductwork will all be factors that will have to be considered. A consultation with an experienced contractor will be useful during this process.
