Why Cellular & Honeycomb Shades are the energy Saving solution your home needs this winter

With reports stating that the end of 2019 could see temperatures plunge to their lowest in over a decade and the darker mornings looming, it’s certainly not too early to start thinking about how you can best insulate your home from the elements.

According to Ofgem, the industry regulator, the average household spend around £1,254 per year on heating and power making it potentially one of the biggest overheads for households within the UK.

Our windows face the elements head on and it’s cellular blinds that can really make a difference within the home.

So, how do cellular blinds work?

Cellular blinds help by providing a powerful extra layer of defence against any draft coming into your home, therefore slowing down the process of heat loss through your windows

Hexagonal structures connect to create effective little airpockets that when the blind is extended, slows down thermal transfer from your windows.

The air cavity created by the cell creates a clever and effective additional insulation factor for cellular fabrics, insulating your home from the outside elements

Louvolite's SPC Low E has been proven to reduce thermal loss transmission by 71% when compared to the same fabric with a standard coating.

Are they worth it?

The use of these energy saving blinds isn’t just a quick fix attempt at locking in a little extra warmth but also slows down the heat-loss process, meaning that in the long run they will help people save money on their energy bills. These new developments in roller blinds fabric have allowed households to make considerable cutbacks on their energy use, while still maintaining a nice, welcoming and warm home.

Long term benefits

Steps to boost a home's energy efficiency could significantly increase its value when it comes to be sold, according to figures from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). The organisation found that improving the grade of a home's Energy Performance Certificate from G to E or D to B may result in an extra £16,000 being added to its sale price. On average, values go up by 14 per cent where measures to improve efficiency are evident in the estate agent's notes.

Energy and climate change minister Greg Barker said:

"We have long known the benefits of making energy-saving improvements to the home, but this study is real evidence of the huge potential rewards."

It comes after a poll by Survation and the Mirror discovered that 56 per cent of homeowners are concerned about how much their utilities cost.

Cutting bills could be achieved by something as simple as adding more loft insulation or putting energy saving blinds on the windows. Energy saving window blinds fitted throughout your home can save up to 15% of your annual fuel bills, a significant amount and a figure that will certainly appeal to prospective property purchasers.
