Cutting Adelaide Energy Costs with Roller Shutters
Reducing Adelaide power bills
Adelaide homeowners pay some of the highest energy costs in the world, and so it makes good economic sense to invest in ways of reducing the need for expensive heating and air conditioning, with the added bonus of reducing domestic emissions at the same time.
High energy bills
Household energy bills in Adelaide naturally rise during the summer, with the increased need for air conditioning. Likewise, winter heating bills can also be exorbitant, especially if you are heating your home with electric fires or reverse-cycle air conditioning.
Roller shutters can reduce energy costs
Roller shutters enable Adelaide homeowners take steps to exert greater control over the temperature inside their homes, and in so doing reduce their overall energy consumption.
Our Adelaide-made roller shutters for windows and doors, manufactured from premium quality aluminium, are insulated with high-density polyurethane and then coated with a baked enamel finish. The resulting insulating effect allows homeowners more effectively to control the temperature indoors. When they are closed, roller shutters keep cold air away from the external glass in doors and windows, and so temperatures inside do not fall as rapidly or as dramatically, and heat that has been generated is not lost as quickly. In summer, they prevent the heat entering your home through your window glass, keeping your home much cooler for longer.
Overall domestic energy efficiency has been shown in Australian research to be much improved by the installation of insulated roller shutters, and in turn this also means a reduction in domestic emissions as well.
Protection against extreme weather
During extreme winter weather, such as strong winds and storms, roller shutters provide an additional layer of protection for your home. The robust, high-grade aluminium used in window shutters is strong enough to withstand the effects of flying debris and broken tree branches that can be propelled with great velocity during a storm, and they also protect your windows and doors from the potential damage that can be caused by heavy hail. As well as protecting your glass, this also means that there is less chance of internal water damage to your home as a result of rain blowing in through damaged windows and doors.
