Can I save money on my energy bills by purchasing new blinds?

With all of us feeling the pinch of rising household bills, it is important that we try to save money where we can! Purchasing new blinds or shutters, may seem like an unnecessary expense. However, you may be surprised to learn how these products can actually save you money on energy bills.

A recent study carried out by the BBSA, in conjunction with Salford University, found that there was a reduction in heat loss of up to 32% when blinds are installed!

The list below shows the type of blind or shutter and the reduction in heat loss found when compared to an uncovered window:

  • Perfect fit Cellular blind - 32%

  • Internal Plantation Shutter - 28%

  • Roller blinds within a cassette - 22%

  • Standard Roller blind - 13%

Check this image out - it displays the heat transfer through windows when the blinds are open and closed using a thermal camera. As you can see, when the blinds are closed very little heat is lost!
