Hillarys Advices On Cutting Heating Costs During Recession


This time of year can be a worry to us all. There is a definite cold chill in the air that will only get worse over the coming months and this will inevitably lead to bigger fuel bills. With this in mind, Hillarys has issued some advice on how consumers can use preventative measures to keep the bills to a minimum.

“As we brace ourselves for cold weather, keeping warm becomes big on our list of priorities,” says Sarah Quilliam , head of product design at Hillarys. “While pulling on leg warmers and layers is one way, there are some simple things you can do to turn your home from a draughty ice palace into a cosy hideaway.”

According to research from Nottingham University on behalf of Hillarys, homeowners can make significant savings on fuel bills simply by selecting the right window dressing.

The study compared and evaluated various blind and fabric types and Cascade Romans which fall in lovely soft waterfalls of fabric, topped the study as the most energy efficient blinds of all. They’re perfect for a cosy bedroom or living room, especially if the room is North facing or has several large windows.

Conservatories can almost become ‘no go’ areas during the chillier winter months. Pleated blinds with an insulating backing can help to keep heat in so the room stays snug and warm whilst saving on energy.

Radiators are often placed under windows and then covered up by heavy curtains that can stop the heat circulating properly. Roman blinds give the luxurious look of curtains but fit snugly into the window recess, keeping radiators free to do their job effectively.
