Winter is a week away and those freezing cold mornings and nights are about to hit us! Winter brings a spike in energy usage with just about everyone turning those heaters up every day and, inevitably, there’s the spike in those gas bills. A considerable amount of the heat in your home, whether built up with sunlight, or through heat pumps and space heaters can be lost through your windows. In fact, windows account for as much as 40 per cent of heat loss, according to the Australian Window Association.
At Victory Curtains and Blinds, we know the value in having the right window furnishings installed in homes, as they provide climate control, light control, aesthetics, security, privacy, energy efficiency and remote control functions. We’re focusing on energy efficiency in this week’s blog, as you can not only renew your current window furnishings, but you can also help to insulate your windows and keep your home warm, this winter.
