You’d never want to live in a home without windows - they provide natural light and sometimes stunning vistas too. That being said, windows are also responsible for as much as 50 per cent of heat loss from the typical home. Installing double-glazed windows can help ameliorate this problem, but a decent set of blinds can also offer better insulation. Indeed, investing in new blinds is effective and also much more economical than new windows when it comes to improving the insulation of your home. So which blinds are best for warmth?
Honeycomb, or cellular blinds are designed specifically to protect against heat loss, and they are made from air-pocketed honeycomb-like material. You can get single-cell honeycomb blinds which are effective in protecting against cold, or duel cell blinds which offer excellent insulation in the winter and summer months. You can also get blackout blinds which insulate while also blocking out light. And finally, light filtering blinds are useful for controlling the amount of light that enters a room, and can help you control the warmth of a room when the sun is shining.
Likewise, window shades also have various types like cellular shades, roller shades, honeycomb shades, pleated shades, and Roman shades. Therefore, the abundant different types of windows blinds and shades give you more freedom on your choices, making it easier to find a perfect match to the place and areas where you are planning to install them.
Blind Technique fully supports the ’Make it Safe’ campaign and will always point out the dangers to all customers. At risk also are those thousands of people who already have blinds installed before the campaign started and may not be aware of the danger. Many of the safety devices can be retrofitted and we will be happy to advise you on the various options available. More information and a downloadable brochure can be found on our website.
