The best way to prevent heat from getting into a home is to create a barrier.
Victory Blinds has six innovative ideas for keeping any home cool and looking great this summer while also saving energy and money and increasing property value at the same time.
Folding-arm awnings are a great way to stop direct sunlight entering windows and heating homes. But they aren’t just designed for windows – they can be used to create a new living area outside, extend the roof of an existing patio, or to shade a swimming pool.
Patio pleats aren’t just the latest trend, they’re also a great way to keep direct sunlight out on hot days and making outside living areas useable on even the sunniest days. They look great and can even be motorised for easy operation.
Window tints and films
Window tints and films can block up to 80 per cent of sunlight without losing views, making the inside cooler while protecting carpet and furnishings from fading. Extra privacy can be achieved with deep tints and reflective films, while decorative films can add creative flair.
Aluminium louvres are architects first choice to passively reduce heat entering buildings. That’s because they’re effective, long-lasting and look great when applied to complement the building.
Awnings don’t just stop sunlight, they stop heat from entering the home. Spraying water on awnings can help cool interiors even further to give much- needed relief from the hot Australian sun.
The installation of eZip blinds can create an extra room that’s kept cool so the occupants can enjoy the ambience of the great outdoors. Apart from sun protection, eZip blinds also offer protection from insects, wind and rain.
