Residential awnings enhance the exterior appearance of your home and offer protection from sunlight for outdoor spaces. Although these benefits of awnings are clear, you might not realize that awnings could also help you save money on your energy bills. Awnings can reduce your dependence on electricity while making your home feel cool and comfortable.
When you install an awning, it provides shade to your home. By reducing the amount of direct sunlight in the area of the awning, your home could stay as much as 15 degrees cooler. This means you can run your AC less while still maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home, allowing you to reduce your electricity usage and save money on your utility bills. The shade-providing characteristics of awnings also protect your furniture and flooring from sun damage.
