REDUCE SOLAR HEAT GAIN
When sunlight comes through your windows, solar radiation enters your home — thus increasing your home’s temperature. That is called solar heat gain. Leaving your windows uncovered all day during the summer will certainly make your home very warm. Your HVAC system then has to work hard to cool down your home to a comfortable temperature; the harder it works, the higher your energy bills.
A way to keep your home comfortable and your HVAC system from overworking is covering your windows with motorized shades. Motorized shades use smart technology to know when to lower during the warmest parts of the day. They utilize sunlight sensors to self-adjust and provide coverage from harsh sunlight, so that you and your family stay cool throughout the day and your conditioning doesn’t have to wear out.
PROTECT YOUR ARTWORK AND FURNISHINGS
You likely have items at home that you love — special pieces of art, favorite furniture, unique rugs, family heirlooms. Sadly, sunlight can damage all of those items — even your carpet! UV radiation can fade colors and add dryness. Thankfully, motorized shades can limit the amount of sunlight entering your home, therefore reducing the sunlight damage that can affect your art, furnishings, and carpeting.
