During the hot months those with air conditioning immediately reach for their controller and switch it on at the first sign of a hot day. This is often done earlier in the morning to try and ward off the middle of the day and afternoon scorching heat that Queensland homes are familiar with.
While having air conditioning is a great luxury and certainly a godsend on a really hot day, it’s not so great for the environment for it to be run constantly, it’s also not nice for your electricity bill and hip pocket.
The perfect alternative
It’s always best to look for alternatives to beat the heat and run your air conditioning only when you really need it. Of course not many things beat a nice cool swim or playing under the garden hose, but then when you return inside it can still be hot.
At Image Blinds we have the perfect alternative to running your air conditioning every day and that’s our great range of blinds, drapes and awnings. We offer high quality Australian made products that are built to last and keep their aesthetic appeal.
Here is some information on our products that help control the heat in your home or office.
Our vertical drapes look amazing and help block heat from windows and doors. In particular, keep vertical drapes closed when the sun is directly hitting the doors or windows. We have a great range of fabrics available and choosing the right colours can help keep rooms feel cooler too.
Awnings and sun blinds
Awnings and sun blinds are a great way to help block the heat of the sun from the outside; this means the direct heat of the sun doesn’t even reach your window, thereby reducing the heat even more than if you just had indoor blinds.
Check out our huge range of sun blinds and awnings that will make your home look amazing and keep it cool.
Blinds are well known to help keep homes cooler in summer. The great thing about blinds is that you can adjust the tilt of the slats in order to control sunlight and temperature better. You can choose block out fabrics too to keep your home even more comfortable during the day.
At Image Blinds we recommend keeping blinds and drapes closed during the day to help keep the heat out and open them in the late afternoon when things have cooled down more. Contact us for more information and to book your free measure and quote on 1300 657 100, today.
