Aluminium louvres are a type of window blind or shutter that is affixed to a wall and delivers various benefits.
You might consider installing them to gain the benefits of protection against the elements, improved air ventilation and increased privacy. The particular benefit that we here at Balcony Shutters want to talk to you about today is insulation.
Insulating your home helps to reduce your energy bills. Heat is not lost and insulation also means your air conditioning system doesn’t have to work as hard.
Here is some essential information about how aluminium louvres on the Sunshine Coast can insulate your home.
- Thanks to a trademark ‘sandwich’ layer design that usually consists of rigid polystyrene enclosed between two panels of aluminium, these kinds of louvres are known for their huge ability for helping to insulate your home.
- The insulating qualities of aluminium louvres remain present no matter what kind of louvre style you actually choose. You will still benefit from insulation whether your particular model is a closed window shutter with a special shape, or a slat design, or anything else that might be foreseen with innovation.
- Something important to note is that louvre models that profess to be insulating have all been tested by independent third parties to ensure that the companies have put their money where their mouth is, so to speak. This extra testing means that you are guaranteed the kind of quality that is being promised, and this is a vital point when you are planning on spending a significant amount of money to fully kit your home out with aluminium louvres.
- The more insulating the louvres are, the more constant and regular your internal home temperature is going to be, and this can be really beneficial when it comes to energy efficiency and your home’s carbon footprint.
- Maintenance is easy and aluminium is long-lasting and durable. Aluminium is also lightweight and easy to manoeuvre into position so shitters are operated with ease.
