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.
