Insulating Curtains and Blinds
Each month we are faced with a stack of bills that we have to pay to keep our households running, and as winter arrives, the dreaded electricity bill can often cause our household costs to skyrocket. In the common New Zealand household, over one third of the energy bill is attributed to keeping our homes warm. At the same time, over 60,000 New Zealand homes have inadequate insulation, resulting in all of this heat being lost through our roofs, walls and windows.
The Achilles Heel
42% to 45% of heat, in houses insulated to Pre-2007 Building Requirements, is lost through windows. Even if your home has been insulated under the 2007 Building Code, in which double-glazing is a requirement, 21% to 31% of heat is still lost through your windows.
The Good News
The good news is that insulating curtains and blinds can significantly reduce this heat loss. In fact, the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) believe that well-fitting curtains and blinds, when closed, can reduce heat loss through single glazed windows by 60% and through double glazed windows by 40-50%. Your home will be warmer, and you will make the most of your investment in other energy efficient methods. To read more information click here.
