Dropping temperatures and rising heating bills?

Curtains to the rescue!

If you are feeling the cold and thinking about ways to warm up your home and reduce your energy bills, then curtains are a great way to go. It makes a lot of financial sense!........But we would say that wouldn't we?

Well, please don't take our word for it. Energywise.govt.nz states that good curtains and blinds can reduce heat loss through windows by 60% for single glazed and 40-50% for double glazing.

Tests show that thick curtains help retain 30% of that heat, saving you as much as 20% off your annual heating bill. These are big numbers that translate into proper savings, more toastiness and a greener and more beautiful home.

A win-win-win, surely?

Are curtains going to be expensive?

The long term benefit when you start saving money on your energy bills is well worth the investment. If you choose lined and interlined then your outlay may be a little more, but interestingly by changing the curtain header you may get away with using less fabric. Plus thermal insulation won't be the only benefit (significant as it is), your home will look gorgeous and we think thats important too!
