You have probably noticed that many commercial buildings have awnings on them. For many, it is purely an aesthetic addition, but you might be surprised to learn that awnings can also have a number of other benefits, and many of these are just as relevant for residential properties as they are for commercial ones. To go one step further, motorized retractable awnings offer even more benefits, so they are something you should consider for your home.
- Added Value – Motorized retractable awnings add value to your home. This is because buyers recognize the benefits they offer, and the awnings add beauty and curb appeal to your home, making it easier to sell when you list it on the market.
- All Seasons – Even though you might sometimes think we only have one season here in Oviedo, FL, the truth is that we do have a few chilly weeks, as well. During the winter months, motorized retractable awnings are perfect because you can retract the awnings whenever you want, allowing all that nice, warm sunshine to heat your home, so you may not even need to turn your furnace on, thereby saving in utility costs. During the hot months, motorized retractable awnings will shade the interior of your home and can reduce air conditioning costs by as much as 25%!
- Protection – That hot Florida sun is not just a killer to your utility costs; it is also damaging to your belongings, including the carpeting, other flooring, window treatments and upholstery in your home. Motorized retractable awnings protect these belongings, making them last longer.
