Keep Your Home Warm This Winter with Swift Direct Blinds

It is already that time of the year when you should start preparing for colder days. Where did the summer go? We keep asking ourselves the same question. Winter is coming and that’s not just the first episode of the first season of Game of Thrones but also the fact we should all accept - energy bills will increase. Every opportunity to save some money would have the beneficial effect on your personal budget.

 

Usually, we insulate our lofts and walls or expect them to be insulated when renting. Unfortunately, quite often windows do not get enough attention. It is known that blinds can block and reflect direct sunlight to keep your house cool. However, blinds can also keep your house warm and reduce your energy bills.

We put together the list of blinds that will help you make your house a bit warmer and cut your bills.
 

Roman blinds

Roman blinds are your top choice for bedrooms, living rooms or bigger kitchens as they are known for its thermal features. Our Roman blinds can be upgraded to the interlined blackout thermal lining. Interlining adds a further layer of ‘wadding’ to the blind, further improving the hang, insulation and blackout properties. This type of lining is particularly recommended for ill-fitting potentially draughty windows. Generally, the soft fabric of Roman blinds will keep your house a bit warmer, adding a touch of an elegant look.
 

Roller blinds

Roller blinds generally look well in most rooms. Thermal roller blinds are made of the special fabric that will reduce the cold air going into the room. Some of our thermal roller blinds have applied blackout coating that adds an extra layer to the blind. 

Perfect fit pleated blinds

Perfect fit pleated blinds are specially designed for UPVC windows. These blinds are quick and easy to install due to their no-screw, no-drill functionality. Coming with a frame that clicks into the window, perfect fit pleated blinds will help you reduce draughts coming in the window.

 

Wooden blinds

 

Wooden blinds will add an insulation layer to your windows due to the moderate thickness of the slats. Choose wooden blinds if you want to add a touch of classy look to your home. These blinds have aesthetic and practical features. When tilted partially, wooden blinds allow a flow of air that will be useful during warmer days.

Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds come with a few obvious advantages. First of all, they are great for rooms with larger windows. Secondly, some vertical blinds come with an energy saving feature due to the thickness of the fabric that can be combined with a blackout feature. Vertical blinds are not the most energy saving because of the small gaps between slats. However, if you like the style of vertical blinds and your windows are draught-proof, you are going to get a reasonable energy saving solution.

Using blinds to prevent the heat loss

Overall, by using blinds and more important using them correctly, you could save up to 30% of the amount of heat that is usually lost from a house or apartment.

In winter make sure that you open blinds during the day to benefit from the natural sunlight while keeping your blinds shut at night will prevent the heat loss.

If you want to add more style to your windows and save on energy bills, we have blinds that will fit your liking. Moreover, we provide free samples to help you choose ideal blinds. Prepare your home for winter with Swift Direct Blinds.
