Boise Window Awnings
Window coverings don’t have to be limited to inside your home. Exterior window awnings are an excellent window treatment that helps to control light and heat that comes through your windows to keep your home more comfortable. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following top benefits of window awnings.
Reduce Energy Bills
Many Treasure Valley homeowners want to be able to keep their homes cool and comfortable during the hot days of summer. However, we don’t like the costs associated with keeping our air conditioners running all the time. A great way to accomplish this goal is by blocking out the hot sun before it gets a chance to enter your home.
While strategically planting trees and shrubs is a good way to accomplish this, it can take years for them to fully grow and mature before they provide the appropriate shade. Installing window awnings, however, will provide you with all the shade benefits of trees and shrubs without having to wait as long.
Furthermore, Boise window awnings help to reduce solar heat gain by nearly 80%. You can also opt for retractable awnings so you have the ability to close them in the winter to allow the sun in to naturally heat your home.
Boost Curb Appeal
Boise window awnings are a great way to boost the curb appeal of your home. Since they are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, you won’t have a hard time finding something that goes great with your home’s exterior. Furthermore, your window awnings don’t have to be a permanent fixture if you don’t want them to be. Retractable awnings are a very popular option with Treasure Valley homeowners as they are only extended when you want them to be.
With Boise window awning, you can leave your windows open to allow fresh air into your home even when it’s raining outside. Awnings protect your home by keeping direct rain away from your windows, allowing you to breathe in the fresh summer air while preventing water from getting inside.
Glare & UV Protection
Rooms in your home that get too much direct sunlight can make your home uncomfortable. Even worse, unwanted sunlight can cause glare on TV screens and computer monitors. Furthermore, harmful UV rays from the sun can cause your carpet, furniture, and pictures on the walls to fade. Window awnings help block sunlight from entering your home, protecting your belongings while keeping them nice.
