Do Faux Wood Blinds Keep Heat Out?

Faux wood blinds are an excellent choice if you’re looking to keep your home cool and keep the heat out during the hot summer months. Since faux wood blinds and wood blinds are made from thick solid materials they are an excellent natural insulator for your home. Creating a barrier between your windows and your home, faux wood blinds are able to keep your home cool during the hotter months, while keeping your home warm and insulated during the winter months, too.

Our fitted blinds do this through preventing the sun from completely penetrating your room during the summer through angled blind slats. This means that rather than letting the sun completely heat your room during the summer, faux wooden blinds can give you control over the level of sunlight you want in your home, thus controlling the room temperature. Faux wood blinds keep your home insulated during the winter months through creating a level of insulation between your windows and the room they are fitted in which will prevent any drafts from coming into the room, and will provide an extra layer of insulation as opposed to having no blind at all.
All of our faux wood blinds are top quality blinds meaning that they will always provide an excellent level of insulation and heat protection for your home. Our PVC faux wood blinds are also completely water-resistant so all have increased durability, keeping your home well insulated and protected from moisture and humidity making them an excellent choice for kitchens and bathroom blinds.
