I’m an expert: save 40% on bills by making this simple switch

by uma


Experts have warned that the energy price cap is expected to double in January 2023, hitting £3,850 per year. Utilities consultancy, BFY Group say that home owners could see energy bills of £500 for January alone. 

With this in mind, blind experts at Unbeatable Blinds reveal that switching your regular blinds or curtains to thermal blinds can keep your house warm and save you up to 40% on heating bills once winter arrives. As the cap is set to rise to £3,420 in October, now is a great time to make the switch.

How do thermal blinds work?

Finding the right thermal blind for you and using it correctly can significantly lower the cost of those ever-increasing energy bills. Thermal Blinds are designed to offer incredible temperature control all year round. In the winter months when the temperature drops, thermal blinds create a layer of insulation and prevent cold air from entering your home. In the summer, they will also reflect heat and sunlight, preventing your space from becoming uncomfortably warm.

Aluminium coated blinds with honeycomb pockets are particularly good at regulating temperature as they trap air inside. This creates a thermal barrier between the window and your home, reducing heat loss by up to 40%! In the Summer months, this aluminium coating helps to reflect sunlight, stopping your space from getting uncomfortably warm and reducing 75% of heat entering your home. Making the switch now will benefit you for the remaining hot summer days, and will prepare your house for the winter cold.  

How effective are thermal blinds?

Thermal blinds can be extremely effective when used correctly. The best thermal blinds are those fitted close to the window and are fitted within the recess as they prevent draughts. Thermal blinds will still make a difference if they are hung outside of the window, especially if there is a generous overlap of fabric to cover the surrounding of the wall. For your blinds to be most effective, they should be fully closed as any gaps will compromise their efficiency. 

What are the benefits of thermal blinds?

Temperature control

Thermal blinds offer a 20-40% reduction in heat loss in the colder months. With the expected doubling of the energy cost cap, now is a great time to make the switch to thermal blinds.  

Energy efficient

Thermal blinds are an excellent choice if you want to increase the energy efficiency of your home. Thermal blinds save energy by reducing heat loss and creating a layer of insulation, your home will stay warmer for longer, saving you money on energy bills!


Noise reduction

Peace and quiet can also be achieved when installing thermal blinds. Although not fully noise cancelling, thermal blinds considerably lower the impact of outdoor noise, whether that be weather, traffic or your neighbours! These noise reducing blinds are the perfect choice even if you live in a busy environment.

A spokesperson from Unbeatable Blinds had this to say: ‘As the cost of living continues to grow, finding the right thermal blind for you and using it correctly can not only keep you cool during a heatwave, but they will significantly lower the cost of those ever-increasing energy bills this winter.
