Energy Proof Your Home This Winter

Windows can transform a home but did you know that up to 50% of a home’s heating and cooling can be lost through them, even those with double-glazing.

Energy Proof Your Home This Winter

As the dark nights draw in, we’re reminded that winter will soon be upon us. At Luxaflex® we know that staying warm in your home can often be a challenge, that’s why we invented the highly energy-efficient Duette® Shade, and our latest innovation Duette® Architella® which features a unique honeycomb design for even greater energy efficiency.

Windows can transform a home but did you know that up to 50% of a home’s heating and cooling can be lost through them, even those with double-glazing. Replacing windows can be a big commitment, but there are many other ways to insulate your windows and doors, especially during those colder winter months. Our energy efficient Duette® blinds can help to reduce your energy bills and improve your energy usage overall.

Other ways to aid energy efficiency in your home is choosing the right economical appliances; however, beware of the blind spots. Even with all these energy saving appliances heat can still escape where you least expect it. With our TruFit® Duette® Shades, which are fitted to the glass without the need for any drilling, you can help to stop unwanted heat escaping. TruFit® with its perfect design can fit into pretty much anywhere included tilted or hard to reach windows, combined with PowerView®, our motorised system you’ll be able to move your blinds at the push of a button.

If reducing energy cost is key for you, did you know? That by reducing your thermostat by as little as 1% can actually help cut energy bills, or an easy way to save on heating is to trap free solar heat when it enters your home. Opening your window shades during those sunny wintery days, to let in the heat can help power your home, but don’t lose the benefits of this warmth and always ensure your window treatments are closed before the sun goes down. With Pirouette® you can help to control and filter the light in and around your home, spreading it evenly throughout a room to maximise the reduced daylight hours during the winter months.

Some of our fabrics also feature an impressive A++ energy rating and suit any style or home. Teamed with PowerView® Motorisation you can control the shades in your home, adjusting them automatically throughout the day, during the brightest weather to capture the solar heat, and if you can’t guarantee that you will be home use our home automation app to time them to close when the sun drops, creating the perfect room ambiance morning, noon and night.
