More Information on Thermal Lining
Thermal curtains are specifically designed to regulate room temperature by minimising heat loss during winter and blocking excessive heat during summer. Here’s some essential information to consider:
GTOT (G-value) and Solar Gain
When selecting thermal curtains, look for ones with a low GTOT (G-value). GTOT represents the amount of heat that enters a room through windows. Lower GTOT values indicate reduced heat penetration, resulting in cooler temperatures during summer. Conversely, during winter, curtains with a higher GTOT value are preferred to allow more heat into the room, helping to keep it warm.
Thermal Insulation with Curtains2Bedding Curtain Lining
Our Curtains2Bedding Curtain Lining is a 3-pass blackout lining that offers a remarkable 30 percent reduction in heat loss through windows. This flame retardant lining effectively traps heat within the room, minimising energy consumption required for heating. It is particularly beneficial in colder climates, where it significantly reduces energy bills and ensures a cozy living space.
To summarize, when purchasing thermal curtains, focus on the GTOT (G-value), opting for low GTOT values in summer and high GTOT values in winter. Additionally, consider our other linings to enhance thermal insulation and decrease heat loss through windows. By considering these factors, you can choose the ideal thermal curtains to maintain year-round comfort in your home while conserving energy and reducing costs.
Why Choose Curtains2Bedding Thermal Lining?
Curtains2Bedding’s 3 Pass Lining is specifically designed to offer both thermal insulation and light-blocking properties to curtains. With its ivory color, the lining possesses a low GTOT value, effectively reflecting sunlight and preventing excessive heat from entering the room during summer. The lining’s thickness contributes to heat retention, minimising heat loss through windows and keeping the room warm during winter.
To maintain a cool room during summer with thermal curtains, it is advisable to close the curtains during the hottest part of the day, typically from midday to late afternoon. This prevents excessive heat from infiltrating the room and helps maintain a cooler environment. Opting for curtains with a low GTOT, such as those featuring Direct Fabrics’ 3 Pass Lining, further enhances the ability to reflect sunlight and inhibit heat transfer into the room.
To keep a room warm during winter with thermal curtains, it is recommended to close the curtains at night to prevent heat from escaping through the windows. Additionally, selecting curtains with a high GTOT, such as those without lining or with a thinner lining, allows for increased heat penetration into the room through the windows.
