Can insulating blinds really make a difference to the warmth of your home? The answer is most definitely, YES!

Window coverings aren’t just about aesthetics and decoration. They are functional for light and privacy control, and they can also be a great insulator. If you choose correctly!

Modern homes tend to be open plan design, and natural light is usually a selling feature.

This will have an unwanted impact on your comfort levels in the home, and also on your power bills!

When choosing blinds for your home, it’s important to understand the role that style and fabric will play in helping to insulate windows and prevent heat gain and loss.

Curtains are a great window insulator, when installed correctly. They need to be installed close to the window, and need to fall to the floor or the window sill. Usually, the heavier the drape, the better the insulation.

Automation and Motorisation

Automation and motorisation can help insulate your windows, whatever type of covering you choose. With Motorised blinds, you can schedule your blinds to open and close at particular times of the day. This will allow you to tailor your blind schedule to maximise your heat retention during the colder months. You can have them open when there is direct sun on the window, and close once the sun moves, to retain the heat you have just captured.
