Window Furnishings to Keep Your Heating Bills Down

With electricity prices continuing to rise and South Australia shivering through its coldest start to winter in more than 35 years, how can you keep warm without burning cash?

1. Honeycomb Cellular Blinds

When it comes to keeping your energy bills down, do as the Europeans do and install Honeycomb Cellular Blinds. Often under-considered, but hugely popular throughout Europe, Honeycomb blinds feature little pockets that trap air and form a barrier of insulation between the window and the room. Think of them as a big woollen jumper for your home, using the internal temperature to keep you warm. While these are incredibly efficient at minimising your energy bills, they also add a tactile and textural element to the overall design of your room.

2. Roller Blinds

It’s the most popular design option for a reason. Roller Blinds are a subtle and affordable solution to keeping your heating bills down. Around 35% of your home’s heat is lost through your windows. Therefore, closing your blinds immediately after dusk will help you maintain internal temperature without having to do anything else. With sheer blockout fabrics, textures and colours all available at Stan Bond, we’ve got the perfect design for any lifestyle.

3. Curtains

They’re one of the most effective ways to maintain heat in your home, and they can complement any room. We have a broad range of Sawade Curtains, ranging from traditional to modern fabrics and cuts. The addition of a pelmet will also improve heat retention. Pelmets prevent the warm air inside your home coming in contact with the cool glass – further reducing heat loss through the window.

4. Harnessing the Sun

But, one of the most overlooked energy reducing methods you have at your disposal is the sun. Particularly in South Australia, even when it’s freezing, the sun’s rays still bring some heat to your home. And it’s totally free!

Let the sun enter your home as much as possible through the day – trimming or removing branches and shrubs that might block the sun from your window – then trap everything in at night.

I had three sets of day-night blinds installed and a Veri-shade. Very happy with the total experience from Stan Bond. Professional advice, personal assistance, on time, easy to deal with. I benefited from the suggestions and care taken by each staff member. The blinds and shade look lovely and perform exactly as I had hoped.

It is so rare these days that a company offers such wonderful service and quality of product. From the very start to the very end, nothing short of pure excellence. Jenny was amazing with her suggestions and ideas, her patience very much appreciated and her ability to get the job done within limited timescales very much appreciated. This is my second experience with this company, internal shutters and curtains to go to complete my home and I will not even bother to get quotes elsewhere. Thank you Jenny, and all the team at Stan Bond - don't ever close your doors please!

We found Stan Bond to have really friendly, knowledgeable staff, they were reasonably priced, had fast turnaround and the installer was efficient and cleaned up after himself and was of minimal disruption to our office staff who were all working throughout the installation process. Very happy with the service, we would definitely use again.
