  • Use closely woven, close-fitting blinds or shades. Roller Blinds are a great option and can be customized to match any sort of setting.
  • Ensure there’s a snug fit on both sides and the top of window coverings to stop warm air from moving down behind the curtain and cooling. Roller Blinds or Honeycomb Blinds have a flush and tighter finish.
  • Close shutters, blinds or shades when you have the heating on, especially at night. By leaving your window coverings open, you’re wasting money and energy!
