How Does External Shading Help Reduce Our Energy Costs?

Leveraging External Shading to Optimise Home Energy Efficiency

Greg and Sue learned from Frys Energywise how external shading devices like roller blinds can significantly reduce their home’s energy costs. By controlling heat gain through windows, these shading solutions keep homes cooler in the summer without blocking out sunlight entirely. In winter, retracting these shades allows the sun to naturally warm the home, reducing the need for constant heating. This strategic use of external shading effectively minimizes reliance on air conditioning and heating systems, enhancing comfort while lowering energy bills. Before you start building or renovating, consider consulting with Frys Energywise to incorporate effective external shading that complies with energy efficiency standards.
