Have you ever struggled to keep your home the perfect temperature? Do you let your utility bill go through the roof by using air conditioning? Or do you do nothing and attempt to enjoy your indoor space despite the heat? Our answer would be neither; you should instead invest in high quality window blinds to help keep the heat out and your home cool and comfortable.

Window blinds work by creating a pocket of air to insulate your window from the sun – a cost effective and simple solution to your warm home woes. Here are the best blinds for reducing heat in your home.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds deliver a comprehensive solution to help regulate how much glare, light and therefore heat comes into a room. They can be prepared with a reflective coating to deflect heat and solar gain from your home. This makes them perfect for conservatories and south facing windows that receive sun throughout the day.

Roller Blinds

Our second pick, roller blinds are another great option for keeping the sun out. They can be made from blackout cloth – a dense piece of cloth covering the window that will completely block out sunlight. This makes them ideal for keeping the heat out of your home, or even if you want to sleep in that extra bit longer at the weekend.

Automated Blinds

Automated blinds are slightly different to the other options on this list as it refers to how the blind opens and closes, rather than being a specific blind-type in itself. Automated blinds are fully programmable blinds that will open and close automatically at given times via an electric motor. They’re perfect for keeping the heat out as you’re able to set them to close during the hottest time of day, even if you’re not in your home.

Roman Blinds

A roman blind is a great solution if you’re looking to keep your home cool whilst retaining a touch of elegance to your home. This classically designed window covering provides complete shade for any room, thanks to the thick, heavy fabric that is used. This acts as a highly effective barrier that retains an all important barrier of air between your window and blind, helping to keep the heat out.

Choosing the Right Blinds for Your Home

All blinds have their advantages and there is no right or wrong answer on what’s right for your home. The four solutions covered above will all help to keep your home cool during warmer days, so it could be beneficial to consider other factors such as style, ease-of-use, cost or light control.
