Window Treatments Aid in Lowering Heating Bills Amid Cost of Living Crisis

Posted November 23, 2022 by TotallyShutters

As the United Kingdom prepares for winter, residents are bracing themselves for another round of high energy bills. According to the country's energy regulator, prices will jump an additional 80%.
[23/11/2022, UK] In a recent announcement by the UK's energy regulator, residents can expect their annual household energy bills to increase by as much as 80%. This hike will increase the average consumer's costs from 1,971 pounds to 3,549 pounds per year.
The price cap resulted from the Russia-Ukraine war, with wholesale natural gas prices rising exponentially and putting a strain on the global energy market. This situation has led to increased electricity demand, causing fuel prices spikes. This upsurge adds to the already growing cost-of-living crisis crippling the UK. Unions, charities, and other organizations are all pushing the Britain government for solutions that will help alleviate the burden of energy costs on consumers. And while many say financial assistance is needed, others are looking at more creative solutions to help lower energy bills.
One such solution that is gaining traction is the use of window treatments. By properly insulating windows, homeowners can trap heat inside the home and reduce the energy needed to heat it. According to the Department of Energy, this alternative can result in up to a 30% reduction in energy bills.
Companies like Totally Shutters offer cost-effective window treatments such as plantation shutters, blinds, and other covers. These are well-designed to block out cold air while trapping heat within the home, eliminating the need to use heating systems as often. It's a relatively simple solution that can help reduce energy costs, especially as winter approaches.
