Timber Shutters Block Midday Sun While Insulating
March 12th, 2012, 21:38
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.
