Smart blinds can be used to save energy and cut heating bills, basically your shopping paying for itself as soon as they are fitted.
And the product offering this is Duette® energy-saving blinds. This wise investment features an innovative design that insulates windows and can slash annual heating costs by up to 25%.
I know my bill is sky high as I like to be warm, and with the average heating bill now hovering around £597 per year, this could mean a good amount of pocket money to spend on clothes!
Another nifty item Duette® feature on theirwebsite is an energy saving calculator so you can see exactly how much you will save: http://www.duette.co.uk/energysaver/
Looking to the experts, they claim a staggering 50% of domestic heat is lost through windows, so preventing heat escaping through these ‘energy holes’ should be top of the list for anyone aiming to reduce heating bills and save energy.
Duette® blinds have been designed using a unique honeycomb construction that has been proven to reduce heat loss by up to 46% when fitted in a domestic window.
Save energy in style
You don't need to save energy and be stuck with awful looking blinds as Duette® has an extensive range of textures and colour palette which means every room, and every window can be dressed beautifully.
Light and Dark
If you’re like me you will opt for the Duette® blackout option which is available across the range. There is also the choice of more translucent fabrics to create a beautiful effect as light can diffuse into the room. What’s more, the blinds can be installed as a two-in-one setup, where both fabrics are used on the same window frame.
This option also means you can use the translucent fabric during the day, protecting furnishings from 99% of UV rays; and when darkness falls the blackout fabric provides privacy and a good night’s sleep. And for peace of mind, all Duette® blinds have a child and animal safe operation.
Duette® has another clever design feature which means acoustics are improved by up to 45%, preventing ambient sounds and echoes in larger rooms, and unwelcome noise from outside.
Perfect for conservatories
For rooms with large glass expanses such as conservatories, Duette® is a fantastic choice as its design properties will keep rooms snug in the winter.
What’s more, when we’re lucky enough to enjoy a couple of months of sunshine, they cleverly prevent overheating by reducing solar heat through glass by up to 78%.
