Choosing energy efficient blinds shouldn’t mean sacrificing style and function – and with Tidmarsh Blinds, it doesn’t. Ensuring that your blinds and window coverings are working for you is a great way to cut down your energy bills and save money.

It’s reached the time of year when we’re turning up the thermostat and running up our energy bills trying to stay warm. A simple, stylish change to your home, using blinds, whether externally or internally, can save up to a huge 25% of your home’s energy loss.

Energy Loss
Warm air enters and leaves your home by conduction through the walls, floor, roof and, most evidently, through your windows. A typical house loses between 10 and 25% of its heat through the windows, which is a huge contributing factor to your heating and energy bills – precisely the reason it’s so imperative to prevent these draughts and keep your home insulated.

The Right Kind of Blind
Installing the right kind of Tidmarsh blinds on your windows and doors will help the heat escaping from your home through conduction; a tight window dressing, i.e. a blind, can create an efficient barrier between the window and the inside air, trapping the heat inside the room. Blinds also act as an additional insulating layer at your window, stopping cold draughts from getting inside, while preventing the room’s heat from escaping to the outdoors. This means that it’s quicker and requires less energy to heat your home and keep it warm – saving you money. By using the same technology, blinds are a great way of keeping your home cool in the Summer months – saving you money on fans and air conditioning and further adding to the energy efficiency of your home.

Motorised Blinds
If you’re looking to invest in seriously energy efficient products, motorised blinds may be particularly relevant to your interests. Making the most of daylight is key to saving energy. By reducing our need for electric light, we can embrace the uplifting warmth of the sun. Using Tidmarsh Motorised Blinds, you can set your blinds to maximise your energy bill savings; opening and closing your blinds on a schedule to take advantage of sunlight, while blocking solar heat gain. Tidmarsh can install a fully responsive system to control your blinds to the most efficient schedule – so you won’t even need to think about it.

Lutron Triathlon Blinds
The most fashionable and affordable motorised blind system available, Triathlon Blinds are available from Tidmarsh in new roller blinds or insulating honeycomb blind styles. We offer a wide variety of beautiful colours, fabrics and textures to meet the functional and aesthetic needs of any space. The ultimate in affordable luxury, Triathlon Blinds can be raised or lowered at the touch of a button on your remote. In addition, all insulated honeycomb blind fabrics have a white backing that acts as a reflector, to help keep your space cool and comfortable.

A Professional Fit
With any blind you decide to buy, the key is to make sure that they’re fitted professionally and properly. For the blinds to actually insulate your rooms, they must fit your windows correctly. They should sit as close to the glass as possible, and overlap the window itself slightly. Any gaps will allow the heat to escape, reducing the efficiency all round.

All of our Blinds, Shutters and Awning solutions will help retain heat and reduce heat loss. A reflective Roller Blind can reduce the amount of heat lost through a window by 40% – which is especially good news if you have a heritage property where window glazing cannot be easily changed. We’re always on hand to give you experienced advice – so whatever you’re looking for, we can help you find it.
