Keeping warm and energy-efficient this winter.


As winter's chill settles in, homeowners across the UK are seeking ways to preserve the warmth within their homes. Drafts, cold air, and escaping heat can make your space uncomfortable, but maintaining a warm space by turning up the heating system can lead to soaring energy bills.


So, how can you keep the heat inside while ensuring your energy expenses remain manageable?


Harness the power of your blinds


Keeping your blinds closed and opening them at the sunniest times of day may be your wisest move!


With your blinds closed you can create a protective shield against the winter cold, preventing the loss of indoor warm escaping. So keep your blinds closed at the chilliest times of the day, and as the sun starts to come out and the temperatures rise, open them to allow in natural light and warmth.


Blinds offer a cost-effective solution to keep your space comfortably warm during the winter, and by automating your blinds, you can keep your home warm without any hassle! This is where our blind motors come in!


Seamlessly control when your blinds open and close with the click of a button all through our Shade Connector app. Control your blinds based on the sun's position to optimise the warmth in your home. With the option to automate your blinds per room, you can have your blinds open or closed depending on the direction of the sun, ensuring your home stays comfortable all day long.


With our user-friendly Shade Connector App, you can regulate your blinds from anywhere. Even when you're away from home, you can effortlessly create the ideal environment with just a few clicks.


Boost Efficiency with Solar-Powered Charging Panels


Take your energy-saving to the next level with our solar panel battery packs. Here are our top four benefits to moving to solar this year!


Reducing Energy Costs: Traditional blind motors may rely on battery power or electrical outlets, leading to increased energy costs. Our solar panels help offset these expenses by utilising natural and sustainable solar energy.


Hassle-Free Maintenance: One of the most significant advantages of solar-powered charging panels is that they eliminate the need for frequent recharging. You can enjoy continuous operation without worrying about running out of power, even during those long, dark winter nights.


Supplied with Self-Adhesive Pads: Installing the solar panel is a breeze, thanks to the included 3m self-adhesive pads. No need for complicated wiring or installations – just peel and stick.

Year-Round Energy: Even during the winter, when the sun may not shine as brightly as in summer, these panels are designed to capture and store energy efficiently. This ensures that your blind motors continue to function flawlessly throughout the colder months.


This winter, don't just keep the cold at bay – take control of your space with Ellard's blind motors and solar panels. Stay warm, save energy, and embrace the future of home automation.
