The temperature is dropping in the United Kingdom as we delve deeper into autumn and homes all over the country will be switching on the heating and the firing up the fire places. In this current climate change we need to become more energy efficient and look at ways in which we can reduce our energy consumption to better our planet. Recent reports have warned us of the significant risks that could impact our lives if we continue the way that we do. Our habits need to change and we need to adapt our homes and the way that we use our space, by making the right investments you can help to reduce the impact on the planet and save yourself some money at the same time.
Most homes now consist of large expanses of glazing and these are the vulnerable areas where heat can be lost. Double glazing and triple glazing can help to slow down the heat loss process and with External Blinds you can add further insulation to the glazed areas. External Window Blinds are often overlooked as heat retaining solutions as they are usually associated with reducing solar heat gain and blocking out light, but these are a highly effective and energy efficient window applications that will reduce your energy consumption and keep your energy bills down.
The resistant weatherproof fabric sits within a sealed side channel covering the glazed areas, creating a heat trap that will keep your home warmer for longer. When the warmer weather comes back around these external window blind systems will keep the glazed areas protected from the sun’s intense heat which will reduce the solar heat gain in your home, keeping it at a cool temperature. By doing this you will save on energy that would usually be used to power fans and air conditioning systems that are needed to cool down the home. External Blinds are a natural cooling option that requires a limited amount of power to deploy the screens.
This is certainly a home improvement investment worth considering, they may be a bit more costly than your average interior blinds but these External Shading Blinds have more beneficial factors that will pay off in the short term and the long term. If we all changed our habits and made these small changes to our homes then it would make a bigger difference than you might think.
