Can Curtains reduce heat loss?
If you prefer the look of Curtains, you’ll be pleased to hear that Blockout Curtains are also effective at preventing heat loss and saving on energy bills. In fact, Blockout Curtains which seal around the edges and drop to the floor can preserve up to 20 per cent of the total heat in your home, creating a trapped layer of air between the fabric and the window, which results in an insulating air pocket.
Studies also demonstrate that Curtains made from blockout fabric can reduce heat gains by 33 per cent, which is great news in summer.
