Selling Houses Australia

How to Save Energy and Cut Cooling Costs

Looking to keep cool and save money during the warmer months? Our friends at Luxaflex show us smart ways to save on cooling costs.

Luxaflex Window Fashions is proud to once again partner with Selling Houses Australia for its seventh season on Foxtel’s The Lifestyle Channel, showcasing a variety of window covering solutions for Australian homes.

One solution that continues to be popular and practical for homes is the range of Luxaflex Evo Awnings that offer the latest in design, style and functionality to modern homes, while boasting the ability to save up to 60% off cooling costs in a typical year.

Windows are a big source of unwanted heat loss and gain in a home. Designed and engineered in Australia, Luxaflex Evo Awnings can minimise heat entering your home to create a comfortable, cooler living space.

“To save on cooling costs, homeowners should definitely take into consideration how they shade their windows – a straight drop awning is a modern way to save real money this summer,” said Jenny Brown, National Marketing Manager, Luxaflex Window Fashions.

Homeowners should also take into consideration other factors in the home, including location, the orientation of the home to the sun, the size of the windows as well as the colour and type of fabric used on the awning.

As part of their partnership, Luxaflex will work closely with Selling Houses Australia to incorporate its Australia-wide Gallery program into the show, with local Galleries supplying and installing window covering solutions for the episode’s project.

“Selling Houses Australia is an invaluable opportunity for us to showcase how our innovative and energy efficient products not only add value to a property but also present various solutions for many of the issues faced by different types of Australian homes,” concluded Jenny.

The Evo Awnings Range is available in five style choices, Evo STC, Evo Channel, Evo Cable, Evo Drop and Evo Pivot, all of which come with multiple options to stylishly shade your home. The Evo linking systems allows up to three awnings to be linked together and controlled from one location. The newest control option is soft lift, allowing the awning to be operated without crank or motor.
