Life Under the Awning Blog

It’s no secret that rising energy costs have become a problem for consumers. A recent study, Awnings in Residential Buildings: The Impact on Energy Use and Peak Demand, conducted by the Center for Sustainable Building Research at the University of Minnesota, funded by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA), investigated residential energy savings and reduction of energy use during peak hours. This study found that the use of awnings reduced home energy costs.

The increasingly popular home improvement option of installing awnings provides significant savings on air cooling costs by reducing solar gain though walls and windows. When you increase the shade around your home by purchasing an awning system, you will also experience cooler temperatures inside.
