As Australia moves through some of our hotter months you may be trying to figure out how to keep yourself cool and whether investing in a shade sail at this time of year is worth it.

We know shade sails are an investment, so you want to be sure you’re putting your money into something that will benefit your life and make summertime as glorious as it should be. You will also want something aesthetically pleasing.

Here are some reasons we believe Shade Sails are worth the investment:


An Investment That Saves You Money

Inflation is snapping at everyone’s heels right now, so you may be thinking twice about all purchases. We get it, but getting one of our high-quality shade sails installed could actually save you money.

By reducing the amount of sun that glares through your windows, a shade sail can reduce those skyrocketing energy costs. Reducing the need for your air-con to be switched on at its highest setting.

Shade sails can help make a house cooler by blocking the sun’s direct rays and reducing the amount of heat that enters the house through windows and doors. When installed properly, shade sails can provide significant shade to outdoor areas and adjacent rooms, reducing the need for air conditioning and potentially lowering energy costs.

Additionally, shade sails can create a more comfortable and enjoyable outdoor living space, which can also help reduce the need for indoor cooling. However, it’s important to note that the effectiveness of shade sails in cooling a house will depend on several factors, including the size and orientation of the shade sail, the type of material used, and the specific location and climate of the house.

A Stylish Garden Addition

If you’ve been thinking of ways to update your outdoor space, a shade sail might just be the ticket. Shade sails can create a more functional and comfortable outdoor living space, allowing you to spend more time in the garden and enjoy the natural surroundings.

Acting as both a useful piece of equipment and a modern statement piece, a residential shade sail has it all. Stuart Bell Sails has a wide range of colours and materials for you to choose from and we can customise your shade sail to blend perfectly with your space.

A Long Lasting Investment

You may save money initially by purchasing a simple umbrella sun shade but not only do they cover very little ground they also won’t last very long. You may even find you need to purchase a new one every year.

By installing a hard-wearing shade sail you will get anywhere from 15 to 25 years of cool, shaded space in your garden. As long as you care for your shade sail the way it needs to be cared for, you can expect a decade or two of impeccable wear.

Support Your Wellbeing

It’s no secret that spending as much time outdoors as possible can help to alleviate stress and anxiety. By installing a shade sail you will be able to extend the amount of outdoor space you have to enjoy, even when the weather has other ideas.
