Luxaflex highlights energy-efficient window coverings for Australian homes


Luxaflex Window Fashions is emphasizing the role of window coverings in improving home energy efficiency and reducing heating costs for Australian households.

With rising living costs and increased focus on energy conservation, Luxaflex suggests that maximizing insulation through proper window treatments is one of the most effective ways to control a home’s comfort and reduce energy consumption.

Vera Meharg, Group Marketing Manager at Luxaflex Window Fashions, said: “Up to 40% of a home’s heating energy can be lost through uncovered windows, making window coverings an important consideration for households wanting to reduce their energy consumption.”

Luxaflex recommends several window covering options for retaining heat:

  • Honeycomb blinds, such as Luxaflex Duette Architella Shades, which feature air pockets that trap air and reduce heat transfer. These can reduce heating costs by up to 43%.
  • Shutters, like Luxaflex PolySatin Shutters, which allow control of solar energy entering windows and doors. They can reduce heat entering a home by 20 to 58%.
  • Automated shades, such as those using Luxaflex PowerView Automation, which can be programmed to adjust based on time of day and sun strength.

Meharg added: “The right window coverings work to reduce the energy demand of a home, which is the most direct way to lower energy bills as well as helping to meet climate change targets.”

Luxaflex emphasizes that window coverings not only contribute to energy efficiency and sustainable living practices but also improve sound insulation, privacy, and light control in homes.

The company encourages homeowners to consider these energy-efficient options when building, renovating, or updating their homes to enhance comfort and reduce energy costs.
