How Your Awning Can Save Energy CostsPosted on Thursday, June 23rd, 2016 at 8:10 pm.
If you are looking to lower air conditioning costs, save energy, and help to reduce the effects of the sun’s harmful rays on your loved ones and the interior of your home, then you are looking for awnings. Fixed and retractable awnings have numerous benefits for any homeowner. Read on to learn more about the many pros of adding awnings to your home.
Fixed Or Retractable Awnings Save Energy
Many people are concerned about the health and welfare of the planet in the long term and are beginning to explore greener or more energy efficient methods of heating and cooling their homes. The fact of the matter is, the sun’s rays alone are responsible for roughly 20% of the load on your air conditioner. This translates to a lessening in your energy demands, which is better not only for you, but for the planet.
Fixed Or Retractable Awnings Save Money
While it is very important to be as energy efficient as possible and do everything you can to make your home more environmentally friendly, homeowners are also often concerned with the overall costs of using heating and cooling. This can lead to homes being unheated or unairconditioned late toward summer and winter, making homes very uncomfortable. Installing awnings not only saves energy, but can save you an estimated $200 annually in cooling costs.
Awnings Are Diverse
You can receive all of these benefits without sacrificing style or the general look of your home at all. There are a number of types of awnings available. These include portable, fixed, and retractable awnings. Retractable awnings offer the particular benefit of allowing your home to have the heat reduction cost of the awnings during the warmer months, and allowing your home to have the benefits of the warming sun during the colder months. These awnings fold away at your convenience. Awnings can be motorized or manual and come in a range of fabrics, colors, and patterns to suit a wide variety of needs and tastes.
