6 Reasons You Need an Awning
You’ve been seeing the awnings throughout your Connecticut neighborhood and have been admiring them from afar. You always wondered what it would be like to have an awning yourself and if they are really as awesome as they seem. Well, we are here to tell you that they are just as incredible as you would imagine. Here’s why:
For starters, awnings allow you to enjoy the gorgeous Connecticut sunshine without having to take the time to apply sunscreen. That’s right, a high-quality awning (like the ones in our CT stores) actually blocks 98% of the harmful UV rays the sun emits, meaning your family can stay sunburn free with no effort on your part.
Increase Livable Space
Since awnings provide your patio with ample shade, you just upped your living space. Now you can lounge back and relax like you were inside, only you get the benefits of the outdoor ambiance. Use your newfound space to host dinner parties, play games with friends, or just savor a cool drink on a hot summer day.
Because our awnings come in a huge variety of fabrics and are styled with precision, they increase the beauty of your deck. By choosing from a variety of deluxe patterns, prints, and solids, you can get an awning that perfectly matches your patio furniture. You get to show off your great taste, and your neighbors might even confuse your patio as one from a magazine.
You probably already figured out that an awning can increase the life of your outdoor furniture because it protects it from the elements, but did you realize the awning also keeps your interior items in stellar condition? That’s right. The awning prevents the sun for wreaking havoc on your fine art, hardwood floors, and expensive furniture. Instead of the inevitable fading, cracking, and peeling due to the sun, your belongings will stay looking new for much longer.
When the sun is blocked, the air gets cooler of course. But did you know it actually gets a full 20 degrees cooler in the shadow of the awning? It’s true. Imagine how much more pleasurable your patio will be when you don’t have to worry about wiping sweat off of your forehead every few minutes.
If your air conditioning doesn’t have to battle the sun, it will not have to work nearly as hard to keep your home a comfortable temperature. What does this mean for you? It means that you can save about 60% off of the cooling portion of your Connecticut electric bill. Pretty substantial savings considering you also get all of the perks mentioned above.
As you can see, an awning really is all it’s cracked up to be. It allows you to spend more time enjoying the fresh air and less time worrying about the effects of the sun.
