Awnings for Heat Control in Summer

When it comes to keeping cool this summer, and saving money, outdoor Awnings are the perfect solution for beating the summer heat.

It’s most likely a solution you haven’t thought about but is most effective when it comes to cooling your home.

You pay one price for many, many years of enjoyment (with no unexpected quarterly costs)!

By having an outdoor Awning blind installed and in operation for summmer, it significantly reduces the heat that enters your home through windows (and doorways).

By reducing the heat, it is allowing the inside of your home to remain at a cooler temperature and reducing the need for the use of air-conditioning.

With the constant rise in electricity prices, a more cost-effective solution is needed to reduce your reliance on air conditioning systems that – although great – hits your hip pocket hard!

Wire Guide Awnings and Zipscreen Awnings are a fantastic solution if you are after an Awning that runs from the roofline, straight to ground level.

Auto Lock Awnings are great for bedroom windows as they extend out from the wall and you still have a pocket of air to flow through open windows.

Folding Arm Awnings are another option for use outdoors when needing to cover a specific area, for certain times of the day.
For example, covering the pool to provide shade, or providing a covered entertaining area for your open patio area.

Different Awnings have different capabilities, depending on your needs.

The right fabric choice means you still have a degree of light and the awning can also withstand the wind and rain elements – meaning you can use them all year round, not just in the warmer months.

Darker fabrics are great at reducing the glare, as well as the heat, while the lighter colour fabrics are great for reduction of heat.

With the introduction of home automation, you can plan ahead while you are at work during the day. Lower the awnings in the morning to reduce the heat, so you are not walking into a hot sauna as soon as you step foot into your home at the end of the day.

In case you forgot, or perhaps in preparation of the afternoon heat, you can lower the awnings at the touch of a button on your mobile phone or tablet, without being home.
