The colder months are here, which means cosy evenings as the festive period draws close. But the colder weather brings higher energy bills. As the temperature changes, the energy efficiency of your home does too.
Energy costs are rising, and the arrival of winter energy bills can make a severe dent in our finances. It is predicted that our energy bills will increase by 30% over the next year. Therefore, now it’s a good idea to start thinking of ways to save money on energy.
Plantation shutters are energy-efficient window covering
Many homeowners around London and the UK are using plantation shutters to help save money on their energy bills in the winter. They are the most energy-efficient window treatment and help reduce heat escaping through the windows.
Plantation shutters are bespoke and made to fit all window sizes and shapes, whether big or small. As they perfectly fit the window frame, they ensure an efficient barrier against warm air escaping and cold draughts.
According to Historic Environment Scotland, shutters belong to the most effective methods for improving the thermal performance of traditional windows. They have tested the effectiveness of different ways of improving the thermal performance of windows.
If you are looking for ways to save money on your energy bills this winter, installing plantation shutters will help reduce heat loss and enhance the thermal performance of your windows, keeping heating bills down.
