Reduce Energy Bills in the Warmer Months


Looking for ways to reduce energy bills & consumption?

Providing shade to your home and outdoor living areas is one of the most effective ways to improve summer comfort and reduce energy consumption.

As a general rule the following types are desirable:
* North – fixed or adjustable horizontal shading device such as eaves, pergolas, shade sail or awnings
* South – not required for cooling
* East and west – adjustable shading or vertical screens including sliding screens, louvre screens, shutters, retractable external blinds and awnings
* North east and north west – adjustable shading
* South east and south west – planting
