Close your window coverings at different times during the day

When to close blinds to reduce heat

When you close your blinds and curtains will make a big difference to keeping your home cooler during warmer months.

  • East-facing windows: Close your east-facing window coverings before you go to bed to help to block the morning sun.

  • West-facing windows: Close coverings on west-facing windows in the late afternoon and early evening to block evening sun.

  • South-facing windows: Prevent heat gain via south-facing windows by closing coverings during the day.
