With cost of living pressures dominating many a discussion around a Busselton barbecue, it’s fair to say that many of us are looking for ways to make our homes and outdoor spaces more comfortable without using energy. If only we could make our spaces warmer in winter and cooler in summer without turning on the heater or cooler.
Here’s good news. There is. Introducing outdoor blinds and awnings.
How outdoor blinds improve your home and outdoor areas
When it comes to the inside of your home, the biggest issue with most houses is windows. Single pane windows can gain or lose up to 10 times more heat than the same sized area of insulated wall. Imagine what this means for your energy bill.
Correctly fitted outdoor blinds and awnings will create a protective layer from the sun when summer hits. In winter, they can help to keep the heat inside your home and reduce wind chill. All of which will reduce the amount of money you spend on energy.
Outside it’s a similar story. Install outdoor blinds on your patio, pergola, verandah or other outdoor living space and you’ll keep the sun and hot winds out during summer. In winter, you’ll keep the chilly breezes and rain at bay.
This will make your outdoor living area a whole lot more comfortable. It will also keep any heating or cooling you generate inside your outdoor space, where you need it. Ultimately, this means you can spend more time outside, relaxing and entertaining.
The benefits roll on
Reducing your energy costs and making your home and outdoor living space more comfortable should be enough to convince most people to invest in outdoor blinds and awnings, but if you need more convincing:
- Outdoor blinds and awnings can improve privacy. It does depend on the choice of fabric – obviously clear PVC blinds won’t help.
- Some fabrics even allow you to see out, while not allowing those on the outside from seeing in.
- Mosquitos and other flying pests will find it difficult to penetrate your outdoor living space if your outdoor blinds are fitted well.
- Garden furniture and your barbecue will be protected from the scorching sun and elements.
- Outdoor blinds and awnings are easy to open and close. There’s the choice of a track-guided system that makes opening and closing a breeze and even allows you to partly close. Plus, if you’re looking for the ultimate in ease, motorised systems are available.
