4 Benefits Of Installing Residential Awnings

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Are you searching for ways to enhance the exterior beauty and style of your home? If yes, one way to tremendously improve the look and appeal of your home exterior is installing awnings.  Awnings will increase the beauty, style, and living space of your home while saving you on cooling cost. Read this article to learn about four benefits residential awnings can offer you as a homeowner.

 

Improving Your Home Exterior Color and Style

Residential awnings come in a range of colors, shapes and styles. When picking awnings for your home, you want to select the right patterns, colors and styles.  Since there are so many different types of awnings, you have the opportunity to use awnings on your patios, entryways, windows and virtually any other area of your home.

 

Awnings Give Energy Savings

If you need to save more money on your energy bills, it is a good idea to install awnings on your home. Awnings lower your energy bills because they provide shade for your windows and prevent heat and moisture elements from trapping into your home. In fact, The American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers and The National Bureau of Standards have conducted studies that have revealed awnings are capable of reducing interior heat in homes by 65% when windows are facing south and 77% for windows facing west.

 

Awnings Expand Living Space

With awnings you can increase your living space by adding a canopy to areas such as a home deck or patio. Your living space increases because you are able to extend the seasons you can use your home outdoor space – rain or shine.

 

Awnings Can Protect Your Residential Property

If you use an awning to protect a vulnerable area such as your patio, you will be protecting your residential property investment for years to come.  For example, patio awning helps prevent UV damage on decks, patio furniture, and even interior carpeting and furnishings.
