Energy Efficiency in Winter

Purchasing window coverings from Dollar Curtains & Blinds is a great way to enhance your interior design scheme, but importantly, it will also save you energy and money.

The right window coverings will insulate your windows, resulting in greater control over the interior temperature of your home and significant savings on your power bills.

Uncovered windows are responsible for up to 40 per cent of heat loss from a home in winter, and up to 50 per cent of unwanted heat gain in summer. A one degree fall in temperature in your home adds 10 per cent to your heating bill. Conversely an increase in temperature in summer adds significantly to the energy required for cooling.

Dollar Curtains & Blinds specialises in a number of products that can make a difference to your energy consumption and your bank balance!
