To say that keeping energy bills under control is a hot topic right now would be something of an understatement. Facing an unprecedented and escalating living-cost crisis, millions of UK households are finding it more difficult than ever to make ends meet.
Consequently, any savings that can be made where monthly utility bills are concerned are more than welcome. Particularly with more energy cost increases on the horizon, there has never been a better time to take a proactive approach to energy efficiency at home.
As with most things, it’s the simplest of everyday adjustments here and there that can add up to the biggest differences. Simply by getting into a few good habits here and there, it’s possible to make a noticeable improvement in energy efficiency.
Reducing heat loss with window shutters
Even the most energy-efficient windows are limited in their capacity to keep warm air indoors. This is where high-efficiency window coverings can make all the difference, like plantation shutters.
Studies have shown that expertly-fitted window shutters have the potential to reduce heat loss through windows by as much as 60%, something that could have an immediate and permanent effect on your energy bills while making your home a more comfortable and enjoyable place to spend time.
At Riverside, we specialise in premium-quality plantation shutters for all types of classical and contemporary interiors. Made-to-measure and with a broad range of colours and styles available, we’ll help you bring your interiors to life while protecting your home from the worst of the winter weather.
