Okay, so you have heard it all before. Global warming is overheating the planet, melting the ice caps causing sea levels to rise, while at the same time producing weather events of increasing severity with alarming regularity. Humanity is suffering from heat stress and some are even dying from it, whilst the harmful glare from the sun is the cause of many migraines in people of all ages. More air-conditioning units are being installed than ever before and backyard pools are increasing all over the country, but what options are there available for those who cannot afford this kind of heat relief in their homes?

In homes that have no air-conditioning units installed, the most obvious options are to make every effort to insulate the home where possible. Science has come up with paints that not only cover the roof to protect it, but at the same time insulates the home, dropping the inside temperature by several degrees. Having insulation in the roof and walls will also help to make the home environment more comfortable, but we then need to ensure that heat is not entering the home through unprotected windows as they not only allow strong sunlight to enter and damage furnishings, but unwelcome glare and heat. The most sensible answer to this dilemma is to have blinds Gold Coast or shutters installed in each window.

A wide range of blinds is available nowadays, and has a style to suit all specific needs. Blinds that you can see through while the light entering the home is filtered, blinds that block out the light totally plus venetian blinds of different materials that insulate and allow air to freely circulate as well are all readily available. Made to measure, they will fit any window opening. Another option is the range of shutters Gold Coast, available also in different materials to suit specific needs. Shutters are an excellent overall choice as they provide privacy, free air flow, allow you to have a view and control the amount of light entering the home. In storm affected areas, external aluminium shutters have the further benefit of protecting windows from hail and airborne objects.

Timber is a wonderful insulating material, and as such is used widely in both blinds and shutters. They add aesthetic appeal to the home, protect the interior and insulate all at the same time. For blocking the draining heat of the midday sun, they cannot be surpassed as they do this and allow airflow as well, while insulating and lowering the inside temperature of the home. If you don’t have air-conditioning in your home, try to have your home insulated as much as possible, and have some timber shutters installed. They are a great option at an affordable price.
