Do you value the u-value?

U-values are not something you’re likely be chatting about over breakfast, but they are something the team behind Duette® blinds value very seriously. This little calculation can make a big difference in how effective a material is at insulating; in other words, how energy efficient it is.

Duette Blinds U-value

The lower the U-value of a material, the better it is at insulating. So for example, a wall has a U-value of 0.3 which is pretty good, whereas a single glazed window has a U-value of 5 – not so good…

Duette® blinds are a simple and cost-effective way to lower a window’s U-value; in fact, they’re proven to keep more heat in your home and reduce heat loss by up to 46%. This means lower heating bills too, up to 25% over a year.

Heat Loss

The Energy Saving Trust estimate that if you have single-glazed windows, you’re probably losing a fifth of your heat straight out through the glass. Double glazing can lower this by almost half taking the U-value to 2.8. Add Duette blinds to a window, and you can reduce this even more.
