Winter window Dressing: Which Blinds are the Most Energy Efficient?

Winter window Dressing: Which Blinds are the Most Energy Efficient?

With energy prices continually increasing, it’s important to do whatever you can to make your own as energy efficient as possible during the winter months.

Drafts and heat loss can both problematic – and costly. Around 10% of the heat in your home is lost through windows during the winter months, so its important to choose the most thermal efficient window coverings possible to reduce this figure.

However, given the sheer variety of window coverings available on the market today, it can be difficult to know which are the most energy efficient.

First things first: avoid metal blinds as these have heat conductive properties, which will only accelerate heat loss and can make them hot to the touch if they sit over a radiator.

Then choose a blind made from a relatively thick/insulating fabric, or several layers of materials (e.g. day and night blinds) as this will help to seal in the heat. Roman blinds are another good option – the solid panel design makes them ideal for thicker/padded fabrics without looking bulky.
The more snugly a blind fits into the window casing, the better it is at insulating. Perfectly fitted blinds, which are made to measure, and sit snugly inside your window frame, are ideal. However, these types of blinds are not suitable for sash windows, so may not work for everyone.
