The blackout roller blinds fabrics from Smartblinds all have a number of features that help you insulate your home better. Thanks to a special coating you create an extra layer of insulation, so less heat is lost through your windows in winter and the heat is retained in summer. One fabric reflects all sunlight with an aluminium coating, the other reflects a large part of all sunlight with a heat-resistant pearl coating. To what extent you want to save energy is entirely up to you. We list the options for you:
The Essentials fabric has a white reflective backing. In summer, this makes it easier to keep the heat out. In winter, the fabric keeps out the cold.
The Comfort fabric radiates elegance and quality with its special weave texture. And that's not all, this weave texture reflects 60% of all solar energy.
Research shows that with good window coverings in a detached house, you can save up to 270 m3 of gas per year. The average gas consumption of a detached house in the Netherlands is around 1900 cubic metres (source), which means that with the right window decoration, you can save around 14% in energy costs. With today's high gas prices, a detached house can easily save €800 to €1000 per year. Exactly how many euros you can save depends on the type of home you live in, the number of people in the house and the type of window coverings.
Most of the heat in your home is lost through your windows. With smart window decoration for your windows, you create an extra layer of insulation, reducing this heat loss.
