Staying cool is a full-time job in the middle of the Australian summer, and while we might be spared the worst of the heat on the Sunshine Coast, good ventilation can certainly make your home or office much more comfortable. Your choice of window also plays a big part in determining just how comfortable your interior will be when the sun is beating down on you, so can louvre windows make a big difference to your comfort? Let’s take a look at a few reasons why louvre windows can help you beat the heat, and make a great choice in warmer climates.
The single biggest feature of louvre windows is the louvres themselves, which open and close to give you maximum control over airflow into your house. Fully opening the louvres is like opening a window, but you can gradually dial down the airflow by closing them a bit at a time until you’re happy. Unlike normal windows, which are either open or closed, that’s far more control over the temperature.
Unlike normal windows, louvre windows can open and shut without taking up any more space, and move entirely within their own footprint. This means that not only is it harder for insects, birds or animals to accidentally get into your house, it also means they’re perfect for restricted spaces too. But while they may be compact, louvre windows can actually open wider than normal windows because there are no obstructions for the airflow, meaning you get twice as much air as you normally would.
Extra Privacy With No Trade-offs
Getting privacy with a normal window usually means adding a curtain or blind, which can block the flow of air and make a room stuffy even when the window is open. With a louvre window, you can angle the louvres so that there is no line of sight through your window, but there is still space for air to flow into your house, meaning that you get the best of both worlds. You can even use frosted glass in our windows, for even more privacy when your window is closed.
Easy To Clean
Hot weather usually means plenty of insects and plant life, which in turn means that your windows can get dirty very easily. Thankfully, louvre windows allow you to turn the glass 180 degrees, meaning you can clean both sides of it from inside your house without climbing ladders or hiring cleaners.
