Do Blackout Blinds Keep the Heat Out?
Do blackout blinds keep the heat out? That’s the question people have been inevitably asking over the last few days as temperatures soar to 30 degrees.
The short answer is yes – blackout blinds block sunlight, making them one of the best ways to keep a room cool.
Keep your blinds closed all day and you’ll find there’s a noticeable difference in room temperature – and the more sunlight your blinds block out, the cooler the room will be.
Blackout blinds that have a lighter exterior will be even better at keeping the heat out; this is because they reflect the light, rather than absorb it.
