It seems like every year our power bills go up. Apart from turning off lights and appliances not in use and buying energy efficient white goods, a simple way to help reduce your power bills is to install aluminium louvre windows.
How you ask? We’re here to tell you exactly that, plus a range of other benefits you can expect from top-quality aluminium windows, like those from Southern Cross Glass Windows & Doors.
What are aluminium louvre windows?
The best thing about louvres is that they can be attached to almost any existing window or door. With a high-strength frame and easy-to-manoeuvre blades, louvres provide weatherproofing, allowing you to control sunlight, rain and wind. Southern Cross Windows can supply louvres in either glass or wood, we also offer the louver inserts in glass or aluminium and even a fancy timber-look solution.
Control the temperature of your room with louvre windows
Warm sun on a chilly morning. A cool breeze on a hot day. With louvre windows, you can have both of these things. Thanks to being able to control the pitch of your louvre blades, you can keep out sun, rain or breeze (or let it in) without closing your louvers completely.
By adjusting the louvres to the right position, you can help control the temperature in any room, eliminating the need for costly air conditioners. During winter, you can keep the blades closed for added insulation.
Aluminium louvre windows are easy to clean
The slanted blades aren’t just useful for temperature control. Unlike when you clean normal shutters or windows, you don’t need to go outside. Simply clean one side of the louvres then easily pitch your blades in the other direction to clean the other side. It’s as hassle-free as that.
Add privacy to any room without losing ventilation
Normally you need to open a window to allow airflow into your home, which unless you keep your curtains or blinds drawn, lets prying outside eyes see in. By installing louvres, you can have fresh air and privacy. Slanting your blades allows you to adjust your privacy levels at any time.
