When those cold Winters’ days and nights set in, many people can’t resist the urge to switch on their electric blankets and turn up the thermostat. But while you’re pushing up your energy costs, you may actually be losing a lot of the heat through your walls. And with energy prices at record highs, this is really something you’ll want to avoid. Invest in some insulating wallpaper or thermal wallpaper, and you can trap heat in your home. Read on to learn about thermal wallpaper solutions and how it can make your home more efficient.
Two kinds of insulating wall coverings
There’s a lot of products available today that claim to be thermal wall coverings. They can generally be divided two types – thermal wallpaper and thermal lining paper. Thermal lining paper is designed to by applied to walls and then covered over with wallpaper, where as thermal wallpaper will insulate and provide the finished look for your room. There are not as many designs or prints available as normal wallpaper, but thermal wallpaper is usually designed to be painted over.
The difference in construction between the two is that thermal liner is made from a technologically advanced thermal insulator that’s been bonded to thick lining paper. Thermal wallpaper will also have an additional layer of high quality paper attached to the outer side to give your walls a textured finish, so there’s no need to overlay with additional wallpaper.
As well as making your room heat up as much as 65% more quickly, thermal wall coverings also ensure that heat is retained. Combined this means that you reduce the amount of heating needed to heat a room by up to 36%. And depending on the brand of thermal liner you buy, it can also help to prevent condensation causing problems with mould.
How to use thermal wall coverings
Thermal lining paper and thermal wallpaper are most often used in living areas like the lounge or dining room. But it is suitable to hang on the walls of any room. They can be great at taking the chill out of a Winter’s morning in bedrooms and bathrooms. As well as walls, they can also be installing on ceilings to trap in even more heat if needed.
So if you’re hurting from your last gas or electric bill, or feeling the cold at home, it might be time to think about investing in some thermal wall coverings.
