6 Benefits Of Investing In Awnings

  • Awnings provide better outdoor enjoyment. By controlling the weather that hits your patio or deck you can enjoy your outdoor space rain or shine. Your awning will turn your outdoor space into a beautiful room where you and family can spend endless hours creating memories that last generations. You'll be able to enjoy your time outdoors more than you ever have been able to before.

  • Awnings will save you money on air conditioning. The inside of your home will stay cooler by blocking the sun  from your windows, doors, and walls. This will decrease the amount of heat absorption into your home.
  • Awnings will save you money on electricity bills. You can permit the natural sun light to enter your home reducing the need to use lights or lamps during the day. This will cut down your electricity bills significantly over time. The bonus benefit of this is that you are able to control your indoor shade much easier then having to open and close individual blinds or drapes on multiple windows. This reduction in energy consumption reduces your carbon footprint.

  • Awnings protect your furniture. Luxury patio furniture is engineered to weather the elements of the outdoors much better than your indoor furniture. However, over time these elements do have an effect on your outdoor furniture. Awnings will help limit the sun exposure and water damage to these items. In addition, by blocking the direct sunlight from entering the inside of your home you will be preventing your indoor furniture, drapes, hardwood floors, and carpets from discoloration and fading due to the ultraviolet rays that stream through unprotected windows.
  • Awnings expand your living space. Transform your bare patio, deck, or concrete slab into an outdoor living space. The average temperature is 20 degrees lower under a large awning than in the surrounding space. This makes the comfort level in your patio space under an awning to be comparable to that of your indoors. An extra plus is that you can feel better about your fur babies being outdoors.

  • Awnings increase your home's value.  Awnings enhance your curb appeal, which will help separate your home form similar properties in the marketplace. Awnings also add more usable square footage to your home because you can entertain, relax, or dine in a space that could not be usable if not for the retractable awning.

My wife and I have been looking into ways to spice up our home, as we want to raise the value of it gradually before we sell it in a few years. We’re glad that your article mentions how awnings can help save money on air conditioning as they will cool the interior. I’ll look into getting custom awnings for our windows in the future. https://www.americanawning.com/
