If direct sunlight on the back of your home is causing concerns throughout the house and with your sleep, it may be time to look for better window coverings. Motorized blinds aren't just going to help with keeping out the sun, but also for protection and making your house more energy efficient.
Talk with a couple of installation companies to see how you can get motorized blinds to cover the windows in your home that are having problems. Here are some of the benefits you will experience as a homeowner after this investment.
Prevent Discoloration and Fading
Blocking the sun at times during the day when the UV rays are the highest is a great way to preserve the flooring and furniture in your home. Carpeting won't get discolored, or wood flooring faded from constant sun exposure if you have the windows covered during the sunniest times of the day. Blinds are a great way to preserve the home.
Reduce Cooling Expenses
Not only is about 30 percent of air loss through the windows, but 76 percent of UV rays that hits double paned windows convert into heat. When you have high-quality blinds covering the windows during the height of sun exposure in the day, this can eliminate cool air-conditioned air from escaping, and stop heat from entering the home.
You can easily have the windows closed with the electronic blinds at any time and quickly if you have a need for privacy in the home. Also, if you are out of town or away and you don't want people to see in the home, it's easy to have every window covered at the same time with the press of a button on your smartphone.
Get motorized blinds that can be controlled wirelessly if needed from your smartphone or another electronic device. You can also have a main control panel placed somewhere in the home. Setting the windows on a timer will make getting the coverage you want easy.
You can have the windows set to follow sunrise and sunset or have them set to close at certain times during the day without worry. Get quotes for the different styles and materials that you want for the home, and then see what the cost will be to have the blinds installed in the home. Be sure to ask about both the product warranty and a service warranty from the installation company.
