Did you know that installing outdoor blinds on your Canberra home can save you in two ways this summer? Read on and we’ll explain how.
The first way that Canberra outdoor blinds can save you is from the heat. Yes, as anyone who has lived in Canberra or the ACT can tell you, it can get mighty hot here in summer. The average high is between 26 and 29 degrees Celsius in the summer months and earlier this year we recorded our maximum high of 44 degrees. Enough to have any politician scrambling for the confines of Parliament House!
How can outdoor blinds installed on your Canberra home help in the heat? Pretty simple. Today’s outdoor blinds can come with a clever mesh shade fabric that effectively reduces solar heat from entering your home when installed on windows, and your outdoor area when installed on patios, pergolas and verandahs.
Most importantly, when outdoor blinds are installed on the windows of your Canberra home, they will stop the heat before it enters your home. This makes them more effective than indoor blinds at regulating the inside temperature.
The upshot is that whether you have them installed on your Canberra home’s windows (which can be responsible for up to 87 per cent of heat gain into your home) or your outdoor living area, you’ll be more comfortable this summer. For an outdoor area, this means you can get outside more often to entertain and relax.
What’s the other way that Canberra outdoor blinds can save you this summer? Again, it’s pretty simple. They can save you on energy costs.
As previously mentioned, well-designed and installed outdoor blinds, fitted with modern mesh shade fabric, can help prevent solar heat from entering your home. On some days, this could mean you don’t need to turn on the air conditioning at all. On other days, it may mean you don’t have to run it as hard or as long. Either way, you will be more comfortable and you will save money.
Outdoors, if you’ve installed some form of cooling in your outdoor living area, the same applies. While the savings may not be as much as inside, you won’t have to use your cooling as often and will save on costs.
Luckily for Canberra, when it comes to outdoor blinds you have a specialist on your doorstep.
Outside Concepts Canberra Branch Manager, Tony Cibiras, focusses his efforts on designing and installing outdoor blinds and awnings for ACT homeowners as well as commercial establishments. He can measure, supply and install all styles and types of blinds and awnings, including those with the mesh shade fabric mentioned in this blog, which is also beneficial during our cold winters in keeping the heat in and cold out.
When it comes to operating systems, today’s blinds are also very clever. You can still get roll up blinds but most clients opt for systems such as crank, ziptrak, remote operated, solar and even automatic systems.
