In order to reduce interior temperatures and lower cooling bills you need a means of preventing the sun and heat from entering a home.
Awnings are the ideal answer because they prevent the sun from striking the window and allowing heat to build-up inside.
The U.S. Department of Energy reports that 40% of heat build-up in a home is due to temperature invasion through windows and that by providing shade a homeowner can reduce inside temperatures by as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
According to the Energy Department, these savings are significant because heating and cooling costs account for 44% of utility bills. Independent studies have also shown that awnings screen at least 90% of all UV rays, 70% of solar energy and 70 to 90% of solar heat which can dramatically reduce a utility bill.
There is definitely a positive return on your investment in installing awnings. While these savings related primarily to energy conservation, you also save money by extending the life of interior carpets and upholstery by reducing fading.
Today’s synthetic awning fabrics are fade resistant, long-lasting, easy to clean and stain resistant. Plus the range of solid colors and stripes can complement virtually any home or business design with an elegant, upscale appearance.
