We're often asked do roller blinds keep the heat in and if so, how? In short, the answer is yes they do and we will explore how in this article.
A house will usually lose around 30% of its heat through the windows. This is based on a normal house with double glazing and well fitted windows. This figure dramatically increases if you have the older style Victorian or wooden framed windows which a lot of houses in the UK still have.
If you consider the average heating and water bill in the UK is £609 per annum for gas, that’s around £182.70 wasted each year by not covering your windows properly. Electricity is much more expensive. The average water and heating bill is approximately £2,456 annually. More and more new homes are electricity only and potentially you could be losing £736.80 per annum due to your window coverings.
