The Best Heat Blocking Window Treatments

Summer in Western Australia is certainly epic but it’s not without its drawbacks. Keeping the house cool when it’s hot enough to cook an egg on the pavement can be difficult to do without burning a hole in your pocket. Luckily, there are other ways to reduce summer heat (without the hefty electricity bill the comes with using your air-con)!

The Best Heat Blocking Window Treatments

How to block out heat with window treatments

Auto-Awnings

The most energy efficient way to keep heat out of your home is to prevent the heat hitting the window glass in the first place. And a sure-fire way to do that? Auto awnings. Designed to reflect heat away from your windows, auto awnings are fixed to the external face of your window to provide maximum protection from the sun and elements. Auto awnings come in an extensive range of fabrics and colours to suit all homes, making them a super-stylish solution to the summer heat, as well as an effective one!

In addition to auto awnings, we also stock Wireguide awnings, folding arm awnings and pivot awnings. To find out which style of awnings are right for you, check out this blog.

Aluminium Shutters

By covering your windows with a physical barrier in the form of shutters, this is another effective way to keep sun out of your home. Aluminium shutters block the heat as it hits your windows, thereby reducing heat by up to 90%! With a twist of the louvres, you control how much heat and glare comes through your windows, allowing you to save on cooling bills in summer, and heating bills in winter.

Our aluminium shutters are available in a range of colours, so all you have to do is choose the perfect shade to complement your home. Find out more about the benefits of installing these stylish window shades here.

Zipscreen Blinds

With these blinds installed around your veranda or balcony, the heat reflective design will help you stay cool even the during the warmest summer days. This patented, zip-lock technology means you can turn your alfresco area into a comfortable space for relaxing or entertaining, even when the temperature outside soars.

Zipscreen blinds will reflect more than half the heat that would otherwise enter the area, so you can sit back in total comfort, protected from the elements throughout the year, and all without so much as disturbing your view. Zipscreen systems are now available with solar-powered automation and can be easily controlled with the touch of a button. To learn more about our top veranda and balcony blinds, check out this blog.

Blockout Blinds

Popular indoor window coverings such as Roman blinds, curtains, roller blinds, vertical blinds, day and night blinds and panel blinds, can all be customised with insulating blockout fabric. The thick fabric that makes up blockout blinds is great for keeping the temperature in your home at a more comfortable temperature. The best way to keep out heat is to install blockout blinds inside your home and install outdoor blinds or awnings over your exterior windows. With double the barriers against the sun, you’ll enjoy twice the cooling effects!
