Do thermal curtains work?

The simple answer is yes, thermal curtains have multiple layers of fabric which provide an insulating effect which will make your home more energy efficient. These layers start with a decorative one, this is followed by one or more insulating layers composed of materials to trap air – preventing heat transfer, many thermal curtains are backed with a vapor barrier, preventing absorption of condensation by the insulating materials. The insulating layers have the added benefit of dampening sound transmission through the curtains.

Thermal curtains for the winter

As winter approaches and the temperatures plummet, heating our homes becomes more and more important. Retaining this heat for as long as possible is important to help to reduce energy usage over the winter. This is where thermal curtains can help, the additional insulation provided may help to cut down energy usage and thus energy bills over the winter months. With the current gas and electricity prices thermal curtains can help more than ever reducing the heat loss through windows by up to 25%.

With energy costs rising in the UK, consider installing thermal curtains to help lower your energy and utility bills. In addition, thermal curtains also include a blackout feature means they will keep light locked out and give your room added privacy as well as regulating room temperate whether it is hot or cold. So, to answer the simple question, are thermal curtains worth it? The answer is a definite Yes.


Thermal curtains to keep the heat or cold out

Thermal curtains can help retain heat, acting as a barrier between the cold outside air and the warm, heated, inside air. This is achieved by clever use of multi-layered fabrics with higher R-values than regular curtains. The proper installation of thermal curtains can also help to make rooms feel warmer by reducing drafts, this is by effectively sealing the cold air away behind the curtains, preventing cold air currents from leaking out and causing you to feel colder.

To sum this up, thermal curtains will help to keep the warm air inside and reduce cold air currents from causing drafts. The additional insulation of thermal curtains will also help to dampen sound slightly.
