Energy Efficient blinds can save you money

As well as making your room look great, your blinds can actually help to save you money on your energy bills. How?

Benefits in winter

  • You won’t have to put the heating on as much or as high. Typically heat is lost through windows – especially if they’re single glazed. With Energy Efficient blinds, you can retain up to 40% of that lost heat.
  • In around 5 years, your blinds will have paid for themselves, thanks to the savings you’ll have made as a result of them.
  • They make your home more energy efficient, which helps to reduce the UK’s carbon dioxide emissions.

Benefits in summer

  • Your rooms will become more comfortable as you’ll be able to reduce the maximum temperature of each room by up to 20%.
  • Your furniture, carpets, and décor won’t fade as a result of the sun because the fabrics for the blinds excludes up to 99% of the harmful UV rays.
  • You’ll be able to see your TV and computer screens properly, as the blinds will reduce the glare by up to 94%

Honeycomb-Style Duette® Blinds

Duette® Blinds are the original honeycomb-style blind, which work by opening out in an accordion -like fashion allowing for extra layers between which warm or cold air is trapped. This adds further insulation to your home by creating not only multiple fabric barriers for air and temperature to penetrate, but also an insulating section of trapped air to add a further buffer. This innovative insulating design can help you retain up to 46% of the heat in your home helping to save you a huge amount in the long term.

Investing in these beautiful blinds also means that they will pay for themselves after a few years with the saving you’ll make on your heating bill (Duette estimate around 5 years). Some other features these blinds have include:

  • their child-safe safety features that are built in, such as the SmartCord® and Literise® features
  • a variety of colours and materials available to suit your interior design
  • made-to-measure blinds to ensure you lose as little heat as possible
  • available to be fitted with Powerview Motorisation allowing you to operate your blinds via remote, smartphone or tablet
  • two-tone designs available (combine transparent fabric with an opaque lining for the daytime/evening use)
