Save Money Through Increased Energy Efficiency
External Venetian blinds do more than make your home look stylish and chic. They improve the efficiency of built-in environmental management, a feat accomplished in several different ways. This makes external Venetian blinds an eco-friendly asset for anybody concerned about their personal impact on the environment, and a must-have item for anyone dedicated to responsible green living.
External Venetian blinds reduce household energy requirements. Through opening and closing the blinds throughout the day, it is possible to improve your house's heat retention, or to help it release accumulated heat more efficiently. Depending upon the time of day and the current season, this can make a significant net positive difference to your home's ambient temperature. Imagine waking up to comfortably warm floors every day, or enjoying the cool air of your living room even during the height of summer. External Venetian blinds will help you to achieve this, while lowering the amount of money and energy consumed using heating and/or air-conditioning.
Some sources suggest that merely raising and lowering your external blinds can help retain enough heat within your living area to account for a 3 - 4 degree temperature difference when compared to a house without external blinds.
