In the winter months it’s important to have adequate insulation for your home. Without it, you risk wasting hundreds of pounds as heat is allowed to escape your property rather than being kept inside.
If you’re thinking about getting your home ready for the colder months, then one of the best places to start is with the windows. Of course, there are other areas of the home to consider too such as the walls and loft, but improving window insulation can eliminate draughts and keep your household warm and cosy.
Take a look at our top tips for adding insulation to your windows and keeping the warmth inside.
Energy bills have been increasing substantially in recent years and the bad news is it’s only going to get worse for you. You’re already paying double the amount you spent in 2004.
Blinds are one excellent way to make changes to the windows and innovative technology locks heat inside. Duette® blinds are created with a unique honeycomb design which works to lock heat inside. In fact you can save as much as 25% on your heating bills with these blinds.
That means you don’t need to turn up the thermostat and can enjoy a warmer home throughout the year.
Stop the draughts
One way you stay warm is by layering up your clothing. And this is the exact same principle you should adopt for your windows to eliminate draughts. You don’t have to break the bank either and by combining blinds with curtains, you’ll have a greater chance of keeping the heat in and the cold out.
Of course, make sure to think about your décor when doing this and choose something that’s stylish and looks great.
Improve the conservatory
If you’re lucky enough to have a conservatory, then you’ll probably know you rarely use it in the colder winter months. But this is such a waste because a conservatory can be fantastic for both the hot and cold seasons.
With the conservatory, again choose some stylish and sophisticated blinds that look great. Duette® conservatory roof blinds are great at locking more heat in your home and don’t forget the windows either to give your conservatory a brilliant appeal.
