The summer of 2012/2013 is forecasted to bring months of heat, and Melbourne based Blinds and Awnings Company, Peter Jackson advises Victorians to make sure they choose the correct window fitting ahead of summertime.
To ensure the family home is kept cool, owner of Peter Jackson Blinds and Awnings, Peter Jackson says the right blind and awning for your home and individual windows is crucial.
“There are so many different options of blinds and awnings to choose from, and it can be quite confusing, that’s why making sure you go to a specialist who can advise you on what suits your particular home is vital in guaranteeing your home stays col all year round, especially on the hot days.”
Choosing the right window covering has extra potential benefits including reducing the power bill and cutting carbon pollution, says Mr Jackson. “The right blind and awning can drastically improve the comfort of the home. About half of unwanted heat comes through exposed windows and shading your windows can minimise heat in your home to create a relaxed and cooler environment - while helping you save on power bills.
Mr Jackson also encourages Victorians to follow the below tips to achieve a cool home this summer:
- When rooms are not being used, close the blinds and curtains and open the doors and windows at night when the temperature drops, to cool the house down and let out the hot air.
- Change the way your windows are shaded for both inside and out, this has the potential to cool your house by 70% on the hot days.
- Installing external blinds or awnings to north, east and west facing windows is effective for blocking out the morning and afternoon rays compared to internal blinds, curtains or shutters.
