Awnings do more than provide shaded relief for a hot deck; they can also help you save money on cooling costs by reducing solar heat gain. Solar heat gain is the increase in temperature that occurs in your home due to the sun shining through the windows.  You know how a sunny window feels warm and cozy on a cold winter day?  That’s solar heat gain.  It’s great in the winter, but in the summer, that extra heat makes your air conditioner work harder. 

An awning offers two benefits – it shades your deck or patio and blocks the direct sunlight from your home’s exterior and any windows and doors under the awning. This can reduce solar heat gain by as much as 70%. Studies have shown that awnings can reduce the indoor temperature by up to 15 degrees just by blocking the sun’s rays from hitting the windows and glass doors!

Consider adding an awning to your home to help your air conditioner run less. It could cut your cooling cost in half! Contact your local dealer today and ask them about any special offers that can save you even more!
