Awnings are one of the easiest and most efficient ways to cool off outdoor living spaces like decks and patios without paying for coolers or wasting a tremendous amount of energy to run your air conditioner. The U.S. Department of Energy estimated in 2015 that you can experience a 77 percent reduction of solar heat gain by simply putting an awning over every window that faces the west in your home. South-facing windows should also be protected by an awning, and this can eliminate 65 percent of your home’s solar heat gain. Even if you can only afford to put one awning in place, the shade that it provides will help you stay cooler on a sunny day.
Many people think that professional contractors have to be used in order to enjoy the benefits of awnings, but realistically, DIY retractable awnings are easy to custom order to fit the area you need to be the color, shape, and style you want, all arriving directly at your home at a fraction of the cost of the awning and installation by a traditional manufacturer and installer.
