Careful choice of window treatments could result in massive savings on your power bill this winter. Energy-efficient window coverings help to reduce the transfer of heat through the glass, which means that your heaters don’t have to work so hard maintaining a comfortable and even temperature inside your home.

Many Australians live in areas where both the winters and the summers are severe. And while energy-efficient homes are a hot topic, modern heating (and cooling) systems are often powered by gas or electricity. This means that the inevitable energy bills are nasty. Unfortunately, there’s not much getting around it: to maintain comfortable and healthy homes we have become too reliant on our heaters and air-conditioners. With electricity prices at record highs, it’s tricky to maintain a home that’s both budget-friendly and environmentally safe.

Warm Up Your Windows For Winter

Windows are a fundamental part of every home: they’re very necessary for airflow, light and aesthetics.  However, they’re also the ‘weak link in the chain’ when it comes to efficiency – energy transfers quickly through glass, meaning that the windows allow solar energy to heat up the home during summer, and warm air to escape to the outside during winter.  Hence the need for effective window treatments.

Let’s take a quick look at a few energy-efficient window treatments available:

Plantation Shutters

Do plantation shutters keep heat in?  Yes!  Their overlapping louvre design essentially adds another layer to your windows, helping to keep the warm air where you want it.  And during the summer, the rotating blades can be turned to reflect the sunlight away from the window, which will reduce the amount of solar energy that penetrates the glass.

In addition to their excellent insulation properties, shutters add undeniable charm to any home or office space. Their classic design compliments both modern and traditional decor, making them an elegant addition to any design style.

Luxaflex Duette Shades

Luxaflex Duette Shades are recognized as the most energy-efficient window treatment on the Australian market.  In fact, the exclusive Luxaflex Duette Shade can reduce heating costs by an amazing 43%!  The unique honeycomb structure acts as a very effective insulator by trapping warm air inside the cell, helping to maintain a consistent temperature inside the home. Available in several layers of opacity, Luxaflex Duette Shades provide maximum protection without compromising the amount of daylight your home receives.


Fitting an external awning will save you a heap off your energy bill.  External awnings not only protect your windows from direct sunlight and rain, but they also reflect glare too.  Modern awnings are available in retractable designs, which allows you to enjoy the benefits of the sunlight on the windows during the winter months.
