If you own a home, you probably make every improvement you can to make it more energy efficient. Window treatments, for instance, can save as much as 50% of your energy. Depending on the season, a window treatment will keep cool or warm air in while keeping the elements out. Most treatments are also great to protect your home’s interior from harmful UV rays from the sun. Sunnier awnings can also insulate the home while making it possible to enjoy an outdoor patio or deck. Awnings can reduce the amount of heat that gets into your home in the summer by nearly 77% and cut the glare from windows by 97%. These features mean your energy bill be lower and we all love that. The Center for Sustainable Building Research at the University of Minnesota recently found that adding awnings to a home can reduce their energy bills by at least 15%.
Sunair awnings are guaranteed and they can add real value to a home. They can make outdoor areas usable when the elements strike and make them very unpleasant. The heat from the sun, not to mention the cancer causing UV rays, can make spending any time on your deck or patio unbearable but an awning will shield you and your guests from the sun. It will also keep that area up to 20 degrees cooler.
Retractable awnings are also great during a rainstorm. It can be really soothing to sit on a patio, under some protection, and listen to the rain. Studies show that the sound of water can lower your blood pressure and reduce stress and anxiety. With a Sunair awning, you can enjoy the benefits of listening to the rain without getting wet. This also increase the usefulness of your patio or deck. Without an awning, the rain would keep you from going out and enjoying it but with an awning, you can sit back and relax on your deck.
