Why Should You Invest In Energy Saving Blinds?
Now, before we consult the numbers, let’s talk about why you should consider purchasing energy saving blinds.
Its safe to say, we lose lots of energy through our windows on a daily basis.
Yes, even double glazed windows.
This general energy inefficiency means we use even more energy to compensate. Ultimately leading to higher energy bills.
By simply providing extra insulation for your windows, you can instantly reduce your overall energy consumption.
Looking at the bigger picture too, if we all better insulate our homes, it will save a great amount of energy on a national scale. Which helps the environment and tackles Climate Change.
How Much Energy Can Your Blinds Save You?
OK let’s get down to numbers!
So exactly how much energy will you save?
Well, when combined with double-glazing, expect up to 46% reduction in heat loss in your home.
That is a huge reduction!
But the really great news about this, is that reduction in heat loss means you will use much less heating.
In fact, you will be looking at reducing heating energy by 51%. Which importantly saves you money on energy bills, especially in the long term.
OK, so these numbers look good but which blinds are considered energy saving?
And more importantly which of them work best?
