Reducing energy bills: Fitting blinds in historic buildings
The UK is home to a wonderful range of historic buildings and period homes, most of which which have been carefully protected so they can still be used today. While such properties are admired by many for their beautiful and traditional designs, their functionality is often be overlooked as most are still difficult to heat.
Investing in entirely new windows can be an expensive, complicated and time-consuming task. Finding the perfect match for a period home can prove to be rather challenging as it’s often very difficult to get consent for double glazing in old traditional buildings. Installing Perfect Fit blinds provides the ideal solution, as they offer a cost-effective and easy-to-fit alternative to double glazing, helping to reduce energy bills while preserving period windows.
Perfect Fit blinds
Perfect Fit blinds provide enhanced privacy and insulation as they simply sit in their own frame which is attached neatly to the double glazed windows without the need to drill or screw into the uPVC frames. The blinds sit snugly within the window space, preventing any natural light from filtering in or disturbance from the outside world.
In turn, this offers exceptional thermal efficiency as the frame fits firmly against the window to help reduce excessive heat during the summer and retains heat in the cold winter months. This will also help to keep energy bills down, as air conditioning and heating usage will decrease.
Energy efficient fabric
For superior thermal insulation, there are also a range of energy efficient fabrics, such as blackout blinds, available which can be used in line with the Perfect Fit installation. This will help to maximise the insulating qualities, so you can enjoy a warmer period home which is cheaper to run.
Period homes are valued for their elegant feature windows which, despite looking incredible, can make it difficult to find blinds which will fit their varying shapes and sizes.
