Curtains, Blinds & Awnings for Summer Energy Efficiency

Danielle Crosby - Sunday, November 01, 2015

...

Purchasing window coverings from dollar curtains & blinds is a great way to enhance your interior design scheme, but importantly, it will also save you energy and money.

The right window coverings will insulate your windows, resulting in greater control over the interior temperature of your home and significant savings on your power bills.

Uncovered windows are responsible for up to 40 per cent of heat loss from a home in winter, and up to 50 per cent of unwanted heat gain in summer. A one degree fall in temperature in your home adds 10 per cent to your heating bill. Conversely an increase in temperature in summer adds significantly to the energy required for cooling.

Dollar Curtains & Blinds specialises in a number of products that can make a difference to your energy consumption and your bank balance!

Curtains

By choosing drapes from Dollar Curtains & Blinds, you can preserve up to 20 per cent of the total heat in your home, creating a trapped layer of air between the fabric and the window, which results in an insulating air pocket. Studies demonstrate that curtains made from block out fabric can reduce heat gains by 33 per cent. Curtains also stay cooler than other window treatments in the summer because their pleats and folds lose heat through convection.

Linings

Adding Dollar Curtains & Blinds lining onto your curtains creates a second layer of trapped air and further insulation. It is also the highest quality lining available - Australian Made, manufactured in Melbourne and ISO Certified to 9001- 2008.

Pelmets

Our boxed pelmets form a barrier that stops the warm air that has risen to the top of the room from escaping over the top of the curtain and through the window. The pelmets also stop air coming back through the glass in summer by trapping it under the pelmet before it gets into the room.

Roman blinds

The fabric layers in our roman blinds create an insulating air barrier, resulting in reduced heat loss in winter and the retention of a cool interior temperature in summer. An ideal product to use in conjunction with pelmets and drapes, our soft romans can be further enhanced through the addition of soft facing fabric, meaning the window is effectively being covered with a double layer of material.

Venetian blinds

The slats in our venetian blinds allow you to control light and ventilation, you can adjust the slats to block and reflect direct sunlight onto a light coloured ceiling, which will diffuse the light without much heat or glare.

Cellular blinds

The unique construction of our cellular blinds allows air to be trapped within each cell, creating a layer of insulation, cooling or heating the air to the internal temperature before it is released. This results in savings of up to 32%* on your energy costs.

Roller blinds

Dollar Curtains & Blinds roller blinds are available in UV filtering and energy reflective fabrics which help control the amount of energy that enters and exits the room and vice versa.

dual roller blinds

Our dual or double roller blinds double the insulation; by having two blinds you are creating two air pockets to trap the air and cool or heat it before it enters.

plantation shutters

Dollar Curtains & Blinds shutters are ideal for UV protection in summer, the louvres allow ventilation and natural daylight to enter a room, while blocking out heat and glare. In winter when the louvres are closed the timber barrier insulates.

external roller shutters

Our external roller shutters offer weather protection all year round, resulting in up to 40% energy savings on a homes heating and cooling.

awnings

Our awnings are ideal for regulating the amount of solar energy that reaches the facade of your home. They can greatly improve your home’s energy efficiency in summer, reducing solar heat gain by up to 77% on windows. Our adjustable or retractable awnings can then be rolled up in the winter to let the sun warm your house.
