A Retractable Sunsetter Awning Can Cut Energy Costs
The Green Way to Reduce Energy Use
Having an Sunsetter awning installed over your patio or deck during the summer offers not only a great escape from the hot sun, but it also helps to shield your carpet and furniture from the sun’s harmful rays. However, one thing you may not have considered is that because outdoor shade products, like awnings, reduce the amount of sun coming through your home’s windows, they also help reduce your energy use! A study by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers proved that awnings keep your home up to 30% cooler. That can add up to substantial savings in energy usage and costs. For the same reasons, awnings are actually good for the environment. How you ask? Because using an awning contributes to a reduction in a household’s demand for energy which then directly reduces the impact of global warming from excessive energy use.
