Increasing The Style And Energy Efficiency Of Your Home

Making your home more energy efficient can save you money on your bills and also help the environment too, making this an attractive option when it comes to home improvements.

External Roller Blinds

There are many ways you can make your home more energy efficient and a number of these options can also enhance the look and style of your home too. So here we give a quick guide to some great ways to make your home both more energy efficient and stylish too. 

Windows

Windows account for a significant proportion of the heat lost from our homes, so why not consider updating your windows and installing some more stylish and energy efficient alternatives. For example double glazed windows are an energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing option, and can help keep your home warmer and quieter, and even reduce your energy bills too. The great thing is that these windows are available in a range of different styles and finishes to complement your home perfectly, making them great aesthetic additions too.

Exterior Blinds

Installing blinds is another great way to increase the energy efficiency of your home, by helping to better insulate your property. Exterior blinds in particular can have a number of benefits for the environment and external shading can often be much more effective than internal shading. Indeed even homes with the best quality glazing can still lose heat fairly rapidly, however external blinds can help to reduce this heat loss significantly.

Exterior blinds can act to trap an extra layer of air between their surface and that of your windows, providing some handy extra thermal insulation for when the cold weather arrives. In this way external blinds can help to reduce the amount of heat lost from your building, saving you some money on your heating bills too.External Roof Blinds

These blinds also have considerable advantages during the summer months too. It can take considerably more energy to cool a building by 1 degree than to heat it by the same amount, almost three times as much in fact. However by blocking the suns solar radiation and preventing overheating, external blinds can help to regulate the internal environment in your home, meaning relying on your air conditioning will be a thing of the past.External Conservatory Roof Blinds
