By having blinds or shutters installed you can reduce heat lost through your windows by up to 40%. For every £1000 you spend on your heating bills, you can save £70! Having blinds and shutters in winter and using them properly can reduce the heat loss through the windows which means the demand for heating is reduced and you will have smaller energy bills.
- In the winter retain the heat by closing the blinds after sunset.
- In the winter on sunny days open the blinds during the day to gain heat from the winter sun.
- Close the blinds in rooms which aren’t occupied.
