There are different reasons why homes can get so hot on sunny days. In this post, we will explain some of them and some solutions to keep your home areas as cool as possible, no matter how hot is outside it.
Why is it so humid in my house?
There are days when the temperature can often feel very hot inside a home, actually warmer than it is outside sometimes. You may feel like the humidity is so high in your house that you just want to put the A/C on max, no matter how expensive it can be.
This sensation is because when sunlight passes through a window, it turns the ultraviolet light rays into infrared, which heats up your room temperature significantly. This process is also known as the Greenhouse Effect, which is pretty much like sitting in a car on a sunny day when the car gets very hot, very quickly.
We all know how dangerous is to leave a dog in a car on a sunny day and, we don’t think about how our homes will heat up dramatically much the same way.
Now that we know one of the main reasons why a house can be so humid, let’s talk about some cost-effective solutions:
How to keep your A/C costs down to a minimum?
You can buy a more efficient air conditioning system that blasts more air for less money but despite that, this is unlikely to solve the problem at its root issue.
However, one of the best long-term solutions is having roller shutters installed in rooms that have a lot of daylight coming through. It will dramatically reduce sunlight exposure, which in turn will keep the room and house cooler, which in turn means you are not spending as much on air conditioning.
Solving the problem at the root cause gives you the flexibility to adjust your windows when required. Request your roller shutters quote for free!
Whether it’s sunlight exposure, light control, or sound reduction, you can adjust the shutters up and down or anywhere in between to control these levels perfectly.
So what is the best way to cover the windows?
The best way to cover your windows is with Roller Shutters.
There is simply no other product out there that will give you a 100% blackout on an opening in your home.
You may be able to reduce about 20% of the effect with blinds, but window roller shutters are insulated with foam that ensures that you don’t just block all of the light coming into your home, but also all of the heat, much of the worst sound like car noises and barking sounds.
Window roller shutters are a great way to ensure your home is multifunctioning and gives you the ability to adjust according to the weather or your unique environment in your neighbourhood. You may be near a road and want to reduce the sound of cars ongoing throughout the day and night.

Install roller shutters to adjust light levels in your home
Someone may want to sleep during the daytime typically having a baby will mean we see young families wanting roller shutters on their windows ready for when the baby wants to sleep during the day.
Obviously, a hot room that is impossible to keep dark will be much harder for the baby to sleep in, which is why a lot of young parents come to us for roller shutters. We also see people looking for a dark room to watch movies, like in a cinema, or for gaming rooms and ensuring you get no glare and a more immersive experience.

Whether it is a loud dog barking constantly day after day, loud lawnmowers, or cars and motorcycles with loud engines disturbing your sleep on a Sunday morning.
We all have experienced these annoying noises. Roller shutters allow you to block out the harshest noises these things will make. Obviously, it won’t be 100% blockout of noise like the light blackout levels are, but you will significantly block all the short wave sounds, which basically means you will get low bass sounds, but noises will be softened and bother you a lot less.
