You’ve probably come across window awnings on homes, offices, and storefronts – they look like mini roofs hovering over a window or a door and can come in different colors, fabrics, and styles. You also probably wondered if there was much benefit for your home. To put it simply, yes! Window awnings can offer many benefits that can enhance your home’s curb appeal but also for practical use. If you are still unsure if window awnings are right for you let’s take a look at other benefits you should consider as well.
Can improve energy efficiency in your home
When the awning overhangs your window or door, it blocks out any direct sunlight coming through the window, contributing to adding more heat to the room. Window awnings can essentially save you on energy bills, especially during peak season, as it reduces the heavy amount of UV rays that come in contact with the window and heat.
Prevents furniture and rug from fading
Believe it or not, furniture and rugs can wear off from being exposed to the sun for a long period of time, and unfortunately, there are no other ways of restoring it to its normal health. Although curtains can be a quick solution, a window awning can require minimum effort while still enjoying the view outside.
Protects your windows and door from harsh elements
The Texas weather can be unpredictable. From the blazing heat to the wild storms, window awnings can actually protect your windows and doors from being damaged. Heavy rain and cold weather can make an impact on your windows. Moisture can be trapped between the inside surface of the windows, leading to mold growth, and can wear out your window’s life expectancy.
