The ACCC Report into the National Electricity Market (Oct 16, 2017) recognised “that price increases over the past 10 years are putting Australian businesses and consumers under unacceptable pressure”. ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said...
“Residential electricity prices have increased by 63% on top of inflation since 2007-08.”
So, while the politicians play the blame game and duck for cover over the energy crisis, how can Veneta Blinds help you reduce your energy costs?
Honeycomb Blinds are made with a unique cellular structured fabric that traps air within their cells to create layers of insulation (similar principle to double glazed windows).
Veneta Honeycomb Blinds will protect your home against heat loss in winter and unwanted solar heat gain in the hot summer months, creating a comfortable indoor living environment all year round and reducing reliance on heating and cooling appliances. This diagram shows how Honeycomb Blinds trap air within the cells, preventing unwanted warm or cool air.
Honeycomb Blinds will significantly reduce your annual home heating and cooling energy costs and lessen your carbon footprint by reducing your energy consumption. Honeycomb Blinds with a blockout fabric are the most energy efficient product in the Veneta range.
This diagram shows how Veneta’s Honeycomb Blinds work to keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. In the winter months, the blind keeps warm air in and cool air out and in the summer months blocks heat from entering the home and keeps cool are inside.
It is important to understand the appliances that keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter generally use the most electricity in your home or office (on average 40% of your total energy usage).
As well as appliances, heat transfer through windows and glass doors contribute to a high level of energy loss, severely reducing the effectiveness of heating and cooling your home or office. The impact on your comfort and costs can be considerable, for example:
In winter, up to 40% of your home's heating energy can leak out through your windows
In summer, up to 87% of heat gain can be caused through uncovered glass windows and doors
In the summer month's, heat gain through an uncovered window can be 100 times greater than an uncovered insulated wall in the same location
The above statistics provided by the Australian Government Department of Environment and Energy, show why it is important to take appropriate measures to insulate your windows and glass doors to reduce rising energy costs. Choosing suitable window coverings that will help to protect your home all your round, can help you save up to 34% on your energy bills.
