The best way to reduce your electricity bill!
With electricity prices set to almost double in the coming months, Norman shows you an easy and effective way to reduce your energy bill.
The number one way to avoid the rising electricity pricing in Australia is to insulate your windows and glass doors.
Often the first thing people think about when they hear the word ‘insulation’ is the building insulation in our roofs and walls, or maybe you think of the window film that goes on the glass – neither of which are terribly exciting nor add any décor inspiration to your home. But window furnishings, in particular Norman’s Portrait Honeycomb Blinds, are a different story.
The Australian Department of the Environment and Energy reported that 40% of your home’s heating energy in winter can be lost through windows, and with much of the southern part of Australia seeing snow on the first day of winter this year, this is not a fact to be laughed at.
In 2021, Norman partnered with the Innovation Hub for Affordable Heating and Cooling (i-Hub) which is an initiative led by the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) in conjunction with CSIRO, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), the University of Melbourne and the University of Wollongong and supported by Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to facilitate a study on the effectiveness of energy consumption with Norman’s Portrait Honeycomb Blinds.
The results showed that the windows that had Norman Portrait Honeycomb Blinds on them saw a 32.89% reduction in reverse cycle AC loading and an astonishing 64.3% reduction in heat loss. These huge reductions are an easy way to reduce your energy bill and therefore, curb those rising electricity prices.
Another important result that was uncovered – Norman’s Portrait Honeycomb Blinds were 55% more efficient than the previous window coverings.
So, if you’re looking to insulate your windows and glass doors, it’s not about any window covering. Norman has spent years developing and testing the Portrait Honeycomb Blind to make it the best possible product for consumers.
The Portrait Honeycomb Blinds comes in a range of colours, patterns and textures with double cell, single-cell, smaller and larger cell options available. It also comes with several operating systems including the SmartRise lift system which has no visible cords – making it child-safe as well as helping to reduce your electricity bill!
With room darkening, light filtering and sheer fabrics available, there isn’t a space that a Norman Honeycomb Blind can’t accommodate.
