Let it snow because we have energy saving fabrics

Choosing energy saving blinds to cover your windows could make a real difference to your utility bills by reducing the amount of heat that gets out.

PlanetSave.com said many people may assume blinds cannot have much of an impact, but the opposite is true because windows typically let out lots of warmth.

The website suggested going for cellular or honeycomb blinds to trap air between the insulating layers.

However, any made to measure blinds will have a positive effect because they can be fitted tightly against the glass.

They are also likely to be better than shutters, which can block out too much light.

"Changing your window dressing is a quick and cheaper way to improve your home's energy efficiency; once this is taken care of, you can move on to improving your loft and wall insulation," PlanetSave.com commented.

Last month, MoneySupermarket.com found that 43 per cent of Britons cite utility bills as their biggest concern at home.

Adding thermal linings to beautiful curtains can reduce the heat loss through double glazed windows by a huge 66%.

Keep cosy folks
