Saving energy with carpets – a guide

Carpets are not only a decorative floor covering, they can also help to save energy. Thanks to their ability to store and insulate heat, they can ensure that less heating energy is required. But how exactly can you save energy with carpets? Here are some tips and tricks:

  1. Choose the right carpet Not every carpet is equally suitable for thermal insulation. Carpets made from natural materials such as virgin wool, seagrass or cotton, sisal carpets or viscose carpets are best suited. These have the ability to store and insulate heat well.

  2. Use underlays To further improve the thermal insulation of the carpet, it is advisable to use a carpet underlay. This ensures that the carpet fits better and less heat is lost.

  3. Place furniture on the carpet To maximize the thermal insulation of the carpet, pieces of furniture such as sofas or armchairs should be placed on top of the carpet whenever possible. This prevents heat from being emitted directly to the ground.

  4. Clean the carpet regularly A clean carpet is not only more hygienic, but also more heat-insulating. Therefore, the carpet should be cleaned regularly to remove dirt and dust.

Pay attention to the surface

Another important aspect when choosing the right carpet is the substrate. On a cold floor, such as tile or concrete, a rug can provide tremendous thermal insulation. A thick, fluffy material such as shaggy or a high pile rug is ideal in this case. Natural materials such as wool or sisal are also particularly suitable for thermal insulation.

Use a carpet pad

Another way to save energy is to use carpet underlay. These serve as an extra layer between the carpet and the subfloor and help to keep the heat in the room. It is therefore worth investing in a good carpet underlay to save on energy costs in the long term.
Overall, carpets can be a valuable addition to the thermal insulation of a room.
With the right choice of material and the use of pads and furniture, you can save energy effectively. It is also important to clean the carpet regularly to maintain its insulating properties.
