The Benefits of Awnings
No matter the weather, awnings are a perfect solution to keeping you dry and cool throughout the year. And with hundreds of different fabrics and designs to choose from, customized awnings can enhance the beauty of any home or business, whether you plan on staying there for years or you’re looking for a good way to draw attention to a property on the market. In addition to traditional awnings, we also offer an array of retractable awnings and canopies.
What are the scientists saying?
According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), residential electricity rates have increased nationally by around 20% in the last 10 years, and the EIA expects the trend to continue through 2040. Coinciding with this upward climb is the second hottest summer on record in New Jersey last year. So, as you can see, the need for protection is real.
Low-maintenance, quality, customized awnings fabricated all in-house may just be what you’re looking for to stem the rising costs. It is estimated that our awnings reduce interior summer heat by up to 77% for western, and 65% for southern exposures. That equates to a potential reduction in indoor temperature by as much as 20 degrees — a benefit reflected in lower air conditioning costs.
Awnings also provide protection from nearly 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays — sparing any unnecessary overexposure and creating an outdoor environment that is safe, pleasant and inviting.
