Whether it is for your home or business, it’s safe to say that you are probably most conscious of heating cost in the colder months. Often you might find yourself conflicted between making your space as warm as possible and being money smart too.
Of course, basic insulation, double glazing and draft reduction are all good ways to save on energy bills (as is the simple strategy of putting on an extra jumper). But what if there was an under-the-radar way to make your space more energy efficient, making it cosier for you and your family — or, if you are a business owner, your staff and customers?
Could the right ceiling be the answer?
As a matter of fact, it could be. By investing in an easy to install (usually less than a day) stretch ceiling, you will also improve your insulation, potentially saving money on heating in the process.
That’s because a stretch ceiling is more energy efficient than a standard ceiling. Basically, a stretch ceiling is a specialised, stylish canvas that can be installed below your current ceiling. Your stretch ceiling will then improve insulation by trapping heat in the air space between itself and your original (still intact) ceiling.
What’s more, you can increase energy efficiency even further by placing additional insulation and acoustic materials into that air space, should you want to. It’s a system that is flexible to your needs.
Stretch ceilings can have many other benefits, including improving the appearance, acoustics and even hygiene of rooms. In short, you will be creating a warmer, quieter, more stylish environment while saving money on heating bills in the process. Sounds like a smart decision.
