New Study shows Sunscreen Roller Blinds Lowers Power Bills and Blocks Summer Heat
AUSTRALIA, Victoria - October 4, 2011 – Australian homeowners can beat the summer heat and cut their electricity bills in half with energy saving sunscreen roller blinds. A recent study by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) reveals that window protection and shading reduces the amount of heat lost or gained by the average Australian house by between 40-60%. Easy to install roller blinds that protect homes, reduce energy consumption and increase cost savings for homeowners are now in high demand.
Mr. Paul Loza, owner of No Worries Blinds (http://www.noworriesblinds.com.au) says, “Roller shades are much more efficient than curtains and many louvered blinds, because they sit very close to the glass, restricting convection currents and thereby reducing heat exchange by up to 28%. If you seal the side edges of the roller shade, for example by using side tracks, you can reduce heat exchange by up to 45%.”
The ABS research shows that over one-third of Australian dwellings (35% in 2008) did not have any type of window treatments to reduce heat loss or gain. New South Wales had the highest proportion of dwellings (45%) with no window treatments losing a massive 40-60% of heat from the house and costing consumers a fortune in heating and cooling bills.
The amount of heat lost or gained through windows depends on the location, size and the types of window blinds used, but can easily be assessed by a trained expert.
