Will blinds keep the cold out?

As colder months are in full flow, you may be wondering, what blinds may benefit you when wanting to keep the cold out and the heat in. 

To answer the question, without a doubt blinds do contribute to keeping the cold out – certain blinds will act more thermal than others. The logic behind this is that the blinds will form a barrier between the material and the glass, trapping a layer of cold air. By saying this, we can be confident that professionally fitted blinds are an effective energy efficient source to keep the heat in and the cold out.
