Saving heating costs does not necessarily have to lead to freezing in your own four walls in winter. Thermal curtains can help counteract the cold and keep the heat in the room. In the following, we present different thermal curtains and show you our top recommendations.

The cold season is just around the corner, but a large part of the German population is forced to heat less or hardly at all due to exorbitant energy costs. This is also confirmed by a survey conducted by the Forsa opinion research institute on behalf of the German Federal Foundation for the Environment, according to which more than two-thirds of those surveyed want to heat less this winter because the costs are too high.

However, by keeping the home office, a large number of people spend more time at home and thus also in the possible cold. Prolonged freezing has a negative effect on concentration and effectiveness. In addition, prolonged cold or a low room temperature can disrupt the normal sleep rhythm.

If you are looking for a quick and cheap solution to the multitude of problems, you could come across so-called thermal curtains. The curtains, mostly made of dark felt or a similar material, should be able to largely prevent the cold from penetrating your own four walls. As a result, the heat-insulating curtain would make an efficient contribution to reducing your own energy costs.

In the following table we present you with the specific advantages and disadvantages of five different thermal curtains that can reduce your energy consumption. Finally, we will show you our top recommendation.

Our top recommendation is praised above all for the very good material processing and insulating properties. In addition, the thermal curtains are available in different colors and sizes. Our top product was rated 4.6 out of 5 stars on Amazon by over 28,000 buyers.

For this comparison, a specialist editor from our partner examined test reports from other publications as well as the most popular offers (“best sellers”) and customer opinions from online retailers. Based on this, the product selection was made. For the selection of the top devices, models with more than four stars and a reasonably high number of ratings come into question. A selection of customer reviews was read and devices were selected that, based on the professional assessment, meet the needs of the users. The products have not been tested in the CHIP test center.
