How Awnings Can Keep Your Home Cool All Summer Long

Awnings are a great external blind

Awning is a great external blind to upgrade your home throughout the summer – able to suit most pergolas, patios, balconies and even external windows. The Australian sun seems to be unbearable lately, with temperatures soaring resulting in heat waves that makes us immediately turn on our air-cons and see a large change in our energy bills.

However, this problem can be solved with awning! Its benefits ranges far beyond aesthetics – they are able to protect furniture, carpets and flooring from fading by regulating the temperature throughout the year. It provides a larger area of comfort and protection from the brutal Australia sun, providing a long-time benefit in addition to immediate shade.

The advantage of an external blind awning is that it keeps the sun off the glass and is far more effective at reducing heat then an internal blind, especially the heat that builds up over the day. Exterior blings and awnings can reduce entry of solar energy by up to 80% and you can see the difference in your energy bills!
