2 Reasons Motorized Window Shades Are Perfect for Your Home
Reduce Costs and Protect Valuable Furnishings With Smart Shading
Motorized window shades are the perfect addition to any home, especially in today’s economy. These window treatments not only help you save money on energy costs, but they also protect your home’s furnishings (and even the paint on your walls).
We recently installed Lutron shades in the home of one of our customers in Santa Monica, CA for precisely these reasons. After installation, they found that their heating and cooling bills became a little more manageable, and they loved the convenience of shades that managed themselves and didn’t have to be opened and closed manually each day.
1. Motorized Window Shades Save on Energy Costs
Given the state of the economy these days, it can be hard to convince yourself to make what feels like a large purchase, but given the many energy-efficient options available to you, what you’ll save in the long run can outweigh the initial cost, especially if you factor in how much the cost of energy will rise in the coming years due to inflation.
There are also several manufacturers that we prefer that have reasonable prices while still providing excellent quality, like Screen Innovations. We’ll help you pick out the shades that are right for you, your needs, your home, and your budget.
Motorized window shades save you on energy costs in several ways. First, they open and close automatically in response to sunlight, ensuring that heat-carrying sunlight stays out of your home during the summer.
Many of these products are also built to insulate, providing even more energy savings during the summer but also keeping warm air from escaping through the cold glass of your windows during winter.
2. Motorized Window Shades Protect Your Furniture and Paint
Over time, sunlight can have a profoundly negative effect on your furniture, your paint, and anything else in your home that is subject to long periods of direct sunlight.
We have regularly gone into customer’s homes where the paint in a room that receives direct sunlight has faded over the years, or a much-loved couch has similarly worn down.
The right shades can slow the natural fading that comes with sunlight. By opening and closing in response to sunlight, they will protect your home even if you’re gone half the year. You won’t have to worry about sun damage like you once did.
