How can roller shutter doors cut your energy bills?
In Brisbane, we have hot summers and pretty cool winters, so most of us tend to have the A/C on during summer and the heating on during winter. As we all can appreciate, cooling and heating your home for a large part of the year, dramatically increases your power bills, so anything you can do to reduce these costs is going to be a huge benefit.
Making sure that your home is well insulated is a good first step towards reducing the loss of both heat and A/C through the roof spaces, but the installation of roller doors can also make a big difference. This is because one of the worst areas in your home for losing heat or the cooling effect of the A/C are the windows.
In Brisbane, roller doors go a long way to reducing this loss, helping to keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. They can also stop much of the direct sunlight from pouring through your windows in the summer, which increases the heat inside your home and causes you to ramp up the A/C.
When you don’t need to have the heating or the A/C so high, because the roller shutter doors help with your home’s insulation, your power bills will drop, saving you money every quarter. Even installing automatic garage doors can help to prevent the loss of heat and the A/C from your home, simply by adding another barrier between your home and the external environment.
