With the Toowoomba winter definitely here, keeping warm is always on our minds. Here are some tips to keep your home warm this winter.
If you live in a poorly insulated home, and many of us do, you could spend thousands during winter on energy bills. The key to understanding how to keep warm is that you lose more heat by radiation to your surroundings than you do by convection to the air. This is why your house feels cold when you get home, even after you’ve turned on the heating; though the air may warm up, the walls take far longer to do so and continue to make you shiver.
One way you can overcome this problem and minimise your energy bill is to install Roller Blinds on your windows.
During the day, your windows let in more radiant energy than gets out; sunlight can enter through the glass, but the window is opaque to the infrared radiation trying to escape. At night, however, windows can get extremely cold, resulting in energy losses of 50-100 watts per square metre, equivalent to running an old-fashioned light bulb.
The best way to prevent this heat loss is to lower your blinds immediately after dusk. They provide an extra barrier to radiant heat loss, add insulation and reduce draughts. Roller Blinds raise the internal surface temperature by up to 15°C and, if you add curtains, you can make the room feel even cosier.

Vertical Blinds are often overlooked, often underappreciated, but are some of the most practical window treatments around.
Why do we at Complete Blinds consider Vertical Blinds to be so practical and why do we love them?
Perfect for Sliding Glass or Patio Doors
Window coverings for sliding glass doors and patio doors need to open from side-to-side (just as the door does) and need to be durable and easy to clean since doors are usually higher traffic areas. In terms of window coverings that slide from side to side and offers louvres or vanes that can be tilted to allow various degrees of light in, then there’s really only one choice: Vertical Blinds. When it comes to patio or sliding glass door window treatments, the product that will provide the best functionality and most versatility is a Vertical Blind.
Ideal for Wide Windows
When it comes to window treatments for wide windows, Vertical Blinds are the best solution. The majority of window treatments are operated in an up and down fashion, making the weight of a blind a primary concern. At a certain weight a blind will simply be too heavy to be lifted. The larger the window treatment, the heavier it will be. Windows that are either very wide or very tall will be difficult to cover with one blind. The side-to-side operation of a vertical blind makes it such that weight is not a concern. Vertical Blinds are able to cover windows as large as 12’ x 10’ using one headrail. A window of this size would require multiple blinds or shades if any other product beside a vertical blind were used.
Wide Range of Colours and Fabrics
With a choice from hundreds of decorator colours, patterns, plains, translucent or blockout fabrics, our range of Vertical Blinds offer a varied choice to complement any décor.

Vertical Blind systems still play an important role in the window furnishings market, with key suppliers continuing to innovate with new colours and features in line with market demand.
For many years the vertical blind was deemed to be the domain of builders and developers and seen as an entry level product, so the offerings were quite bland with very little option to upgrade the blind. What’s sometimes lost to observers is the variety of window types this versatile product can be used to decorate, include patio doors and bi-fold door installations.
As a versatile window furnishing the vertical blind has few, if any, peers. Complete Blinds specialised suppliers can provide Jacquard style fabrics with Light Filtering and Block-Out, and the introduction of vertical soft shade systems, such as Luxaflex Privacy Sheers and Verishades, has brought new life into the category. Our Privacy Sheers and Verishades provide crisp vanes for precise privacy and light control
Complete Blinds is also a supplier of Louvolite fabrics who provide a wide range of specialised colours and fabrics specifically for vertical blinds. Call us at Complete Blinds on 07 4639 2535 for a Free Measure and Quote.
