In a recent blog post from the blinds and shutters franchise, Shuttercraft explored why window treatments are a must for temperature highs and lows.
In the UK, temperature extremes range from sweltering heats in the 30s to -10 in the winter months. In the words of Shuttercraft, “Since the windows in our homes are usually the number one way of natural light and heat entering, it’s becoming increasingly important for us to understand exactly how we can stay cool when we need to – and save money on heating costs when the thermometer drops. Energy efficient window treatments are one of the very best ways to do exactly this.”
The blinds and shutters franchise went on to answer several key questions in the blog post, including the big one: Why is energy efficiency important? According to Shuttercraft, it comes down to two key things. The first is that energy efficient households enjoy lower fuel costs. The second is that energy efficiency means using less fuel overall, which once again lowers costs (and is better for the environment).
Discussing cost reduction, Shuttercraft said, “Quite simply, the more energy efficient your home is, the less money you’ll spend on gas and electricity. Everyone’s homes are a little different, but according to 2021 figures from the energy market regulator, Ofgem, the average dual fuel bill for a residential property is £1,138 per year. Even a small improvement in energy efficiency could keep a chunk of that money in your pocket.”
Plus, “Household energy bills are increasing. [...] Not only will a more energy efficient property save you money in the short term, measures you take to save energy now will continue to keep money in your pocket into the future.” Finally, on the point of helping the environment, Shuttercraft expressed that, “What you can do as an individual [to be more environmentally friendly] doesn’t count for nothing. If everyone in the UK took a more energy-efficient stance with how they run their homes, energy companies would have no option but to listen.”
