Stop throwing money out of the window

A new survey has found that a lower heating bill is the second most wanted saving on household expenditure in 2015, just after cheaper food bills.

The top three savings British households think would benefit their expenditure in 2015 are:

Lower food bills (46%)
Lower heating bills (41%)
Lower electricity bills (29%)

The survey was carried out by the team who produce the UK’s fastest selling energy saving blinds Duette as part of a new initiative to encourage UK households to stop throwing money out of the window.

The issue

A staggering 50% of domestic heat is lost through windows. This fact is reinforced by thermal imaging on houses that clearly shows not only the frames and sills around windows allowing heat to seep out of homes but that panes of glass – even those that are double glazed – are massive energy holes.

The solution

Duette is a range of blinds for the home that save energy and start paying for themselves as soon as they are fitted. Duette blinds have been proven to reduce heat loss by up to 46% when fitted in a domestic window.

The savings

According to new research, Duette® energy saving blinds can slash annual heating costs by up to 25%. With the average heating bill now hovering around £597 per year4, this could mean a significant amount of money back into people’s pocket every year! Made-to-measure Duette blinds fitted cost from around £150.

Try It

Consumers can even work out how much energy they could save with Duette blinds in their own homes by using an online energy saving calculator:

How it works

The result of 20 years product development and innovative design, Duette blinds insulate windows using a honeycomb structure and special fabric. The blackout version offers the most insulation and there are semi translucent and translucent variations.
