It’s got to that time of year when it’s getting colder and we’re all thinking about turning the heating on. Are you wondering how much your heating bill will be this winter and if you can save a few pounds? Did you know that carpet could help?
We all know that as winter draws in, a room with a carpet will seem warmer and cosier. But it is now known that a well fitted and well made carpet can make a clear contribution to retaining heat in a room and as such contribute to your home’s energy efficiency. It is estimated that around 10% of a room’s heat that would be lost through a smooth floor covering, can be retained by a carpet. This may not sound like much, but it can make a big difference in spring and autumn, enabling those with carpets to turn their heating on later and switch it off earlier than those with hard flooring. Not only does carpet have great insulating properties, it also acts as a simple heat barrier. This is particularly beneficial if your subfloor is cold concrete or you have floorboards with gaps that let through draughts!
