Which blinds will keep the heat in?

As windows are a main cause of heat loss in most homes, any form of protection goes a long way. Our quality blinds, especially if coupled with curtains, will give a layer of heat protection to the room. This means cheaper costs throughout the year and less energy expenditure in the long run.

Coated blinds

As well as being especially effective at keeping UV rays out, solar coated blinds – sometimes known as solar protected coating (SPC) or advanced solar control (ASC) fabrics – are also good at keeping heat in. Checking for this type of coating gives you the chance to keep your home warm if you are looking for blinds that retain heat in the colder months.

Energy ratings

Energy efficiency plays a huge part in holding onto heat in the home. To help you choose blinds based on energy efficiency, we grade our fabrics into one of three energy efficient groups: ER1, ER2 and ER3. ER3 is the most efficient and ER1 is the least. All our products are marked with an ‘ER’ rating that is determined by the fabric properties and blind type.

If you are shopping for blinds with energy efficiency in mind, it’s worth noting that a roller blind is better at insulating than a vertical or venetian blind would be.

Heat-retaining options

In addition to offering solar coated blind options in our roller, vertical, Perfect Fit and panel blind ranges, we would also highly recommend a simple roman blind coupled with a curtain for great insulation throughout the year. If you would like to team your blinds with curtains, you’ll find our thick woven fabrics are effective heat retainers.
