Ironically we could say summer months are the most expensive. You know why? Just look at
your summer electricity bill. Summer is the season when we use AC, air coolers, fans the
most so there is no wonder that we have to pay a high amount of money for such external
comfort. But do you know there is a way to save such high energy costs? Yes, you have
guessed it right. It’s the patio awning that beautifies your home and saves energy costs
simultaneously. Some people have strong confusions regarding the effectiveness of such
awnings. They often question an awning’s potential to reduce energy costs. If you are also
having such confusion let us clear your doubts.
Minimizes the heat- on the basis of recent study evidence it could be stated that awning is an
exterior shade that effectively minimizes the heat consumption of a house. You put on your
AC to minimize the heat of your room. If you could have your room temperature appropriate
naturally during the hot summer days, do you have any further need for AC?
A light shade of awnings prevents the heat absorption- Always choose a light colour for
your awning as a light shade of your awning could really prevent the heat absorption. So you
could assume to have a cool temperature in your entire house if you could just choose a light-
Doesn’t let the sunlight to enter your room- yes we can’t deny the fact that sunlight is
somehow good for our health as it produces vitamin D. but the irony is we can’t stand
sunlight in our room in a hot summer day and this is why we have to keep close our windows
in during such long summer days. Now the point is you can’t keep your room dark the entire
day by just closing your window. So what’s the way-out? Most people on summer days tend
to keep the lights of the room on. Now imagine your electricity bill after such huge usage of
AC, lights, and air coolers. An awning saves that external cost just by keeping the sunlight
away from your room.
It’s a lifetime saving- The amazing fact of having an awning in your home is that it’s a
permanent natural solution. You don’t have to pay any money for it every month like paying
your electricity bills. So it’s kinda a one-time investment and lifetime profit.
Reduces internal temperature- some people are unaware of the fact that awning could even
reduce the internal temperature of a house even more than 50%. It works like an umbrella
that keeps us comfortable while walking on the road in a hot summer noon.
So, if you still need confirmation then the answer would be yes it really could save your
energy cost. According to statistical evidence, it could help you to save approximately $200 a
