Life Under the Awning Blog

Retractable awnings help you beat the heatIt’s been a heat record-breaking summer and temperatures continue to soar across the nation with no real relief in sight. July is typically the hottest month of the year in most parts of the US and we just want to find ways to keep comfortable and not break the bank on energy expenses.

The results of a recent energy study commissioned by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA) confirms that heat gain and cooling costs are effectively reduced with the use of exterior solar shades and awnings. This new energy study included 50 cities across the country and proves that awnings reduce home energy consumption during a hot year by more than 52%. Without exterior shading, energy is lost through glass windows, glass doors, and through walls. Eclipse retractable awnings, solar shades, and drop screens help to create a more energy efficient home and protect your family from the harmful UV rays of the sun on their skin.

Custom made Eclipse retractable awnings and shading systems reduce sunlight and glare by as much as 94%, protecting your carpets and upholstery fabric from fading. You’ll know you made the right investment in your home when you see how attractive and functional retractable awnings can be as well as the reduction in your summer energy bills. Awnings enhance the comfort of your home and are affordable, durable, and energy efficient.
