We’ve all noticed that the suns intensity increases year on year and although cooling the home may not be on the top of our agenda, considering our colder seasons (and typical British Summer weather, hot then cold), it is still something that is worth considering as it could save you money in the long term, no matter what the season.
In the summer solar radiation can cause serious overheating in your home especially if your property consists of large amounts of glazing, which so many of us opt to incorporate in extensions and renovations. This in turn results in an uncomfortable indoor environment which we can’t enjoy leaving us opening windows/doors to try to ventilate the heat out.
During the colder seasons the heat you generate to keep the home warm will attempt to escape, this can be through drafts, poorly insulated walls and glass. It is always a constant struggle to maintain the right balance of heat in your home if there are not the right measures in place.
External blinds are an innovative SMART window application as they are able to act as the first line of defence against the solar heat (and light) regulating the amount of heat and light entering your property. External blinds are commonly associated with just shading from the suns heat but what people do not know is these exterior blinds also help to retain the heat trying to escape from the home during colder periods, acting as an additional layer of insulation to the glazing, saving you on your energy bills.
