Trending Outdoor Living Spaces with Retractable Awnings and Their Energy Savings Capability
Featured project of the week!
As outdoor living spaces trend and homeowners look for the space to entertain and relax, sometimes the essential quality of the living space can be overlooked. A great deck or patio isn’t always just a beautiful design furnished with the latest <up and coming> outdoor features. To truly use such a space you must not forget that during the sun’s climax of the day, your outdoor living space may be unusable.
To counter this problem awnings, especially retractable, are a hot trend. The awning has many functions for your outdoor space. It can provide privacy, protect homeowners and pets from the damaging sun rays as well as shield outdoor furniture and protect it from discoloration and fading.
But here is a feature most homeowners don’t realize! Retractable Awnings can actually save you money and cut down on electric consumption. That’s right! An awning can reduce your Air Conditioning by as much as 25%. Moreover, they can reduce interior heat gain up to 77%!
And for resale value, a retractable awning may help a homeowner receive a top dollar offer. Today’s buyers want curb appeal. They want attractive and functional features and energy saving components. A retractable awning has all these features. So remember, you will protect your indoor & outdoor furnishings, control room brightness, block the sun, but still be able to enjoy those stars at night, beautify your home and save on utility costs. Lots of reasons to invest in a retractable awning.
