How to cool a house in the summer? Reliable external window covers

During hot days, we look for shelter in rooms with a pleasant temperature. Ideally if the windows of our house are equipped with roller shutters or facade blinds, because it is the external window covers that are the most effective protection against excessive heating of the interiors.

External window covers are the best method for hot weather

External window covers create a thermal barrier in front of the glass, and this slows down heat exchange. Therefore, they are the most effective method of fighting heat. Their presence makes it easier to maintain the optimal temperature and ensure the comfort of staying in rooms. A very good example are mSun facade blinds. In houses or offices, where they are mounted on the facade of the building, we can lower the temperature by up to 10 degrees Celsius (with an outside temperature of 35 degrees). This significantly affects the comfort of staying, resting or working in rooms exposed to overheating. Thus, it allows you to avoid high costs associated with installing air conditioning and higher electricity bills. Thanks to the possibility any arrangement of the lamellas we will influence regulation of the degree of insolation. We will not achieve this effect by using roller shutters – here we only have the option of completely darkening the room. However, the lowered roller shutter can be treated as an additional element preventing burglary. Therefore, it is worth analyzing all the arguments that will speak in favor of one or the other and conscientiously answer the question what we expect.

Easy assembly and colour matching

External window covers can be installed not only in the case of new investments, but also in older buildings. This is good news for people who did not include roller shutters or facade blinds at the stage of creating an architectural design. Thanks to modern solutions, we are able to easily fit and fasten the window covers in an already inhabited house. This is done without interfering with the body of the building or damaging the facade. A wide range of available colours and patterns will facilitate perfect matching of the window covers to the colour of the joinery, gate or roof. Facade blinds and roller shutters, which blend in with the body of the building, additionally emphasize the style and are also a decorative element.
