thermal curtainsThe cold season has arrived! As much as we like to snuggle up in a blanket for warmth, sometimes it’s just not enough. Your custom home can be built with various heating systems and there are plenty of accessories available to help assist in heating and cooling your home. This is an accessory that can help you make the best of your heating system, no matter which you use: thermal curtains.

What are Thermal Curtains?

Thermal curtains, also known as thermal insulated curtains, are made of very thick materials. Examples include, but are not limited to: cotton, polyester, flannel, vinyl, and velvet. These are all tightly woven and weighty, which makes them perfect for insulating your home.

Benefits of Thermal Curtains

Extra Insulation

The primary benefit of thermal curtains is to keep your home warm. Thanks to their thickness, they serve as an extra barrier of insulation. They keep the warmth produced by your heating system inside while keeping the cold outside. Additionally, in the summer months, they help keep your home nice and cool.

Improve Energy Efficiency

Thermal curtains reduce the costs of keeping your home a moderate temperature.Thermal curtains relieve your heating and air conditioning systems so they do not have to work as hard. This results in less energy required to perform the same task and lowers energy bills. Thermal curtains are inexpensive and quickly pay for themselves in savings.

Several Style Options

Thermal curtains are also quite stylish! The thicker material allows for more variation in colors and patterns that normally aren’t offered in lighter fabrics. You can pick a set that blends seamlessly with the decor of your home. Or, you can choose curtains that pop!

Block out Light

While not all thermal curtains are blackout curtains, many double as such. Blackout curtains are perfect for bedrooms because they block out all sunlight. These are especially useful for rooms holding light-sensitive materials or objects.

If you are looking for a way to keep yourself warm this winter and manage energy usage, consider adding some thermal curtains to your custom home!
