Keep the Intense Sunlight Away
It’s easy to prevent the summer’s harsh rays from sneaking into your kitchen, family room, and other spaces that you spend time hanging out with family and friends. When the sun is high in the sky and is at its hottest, you can have your shades lower automatically with zero hassle.
Either schedule them to lower at certain hours or simply press a button on your smart device – whether it’s a smartphone, tablet, or remote – to have the shades lower at your leisure. You can even install photosensors on your windows that can detect when the sun is shining in too brightly, and have the shades lower and raise back up if needed throughout the day.
This can prevent solar heat gain and protect your interiors, antique furniture and artwork from damage and fading in the sun. You can stay cool and relaxed in your media room while your shades are lowered, keeping the sun from warming up your space and also from causing any glares on your TV screen. Now you can enjoy your favorite summer blockbuster without any annoyances.
Shades Lower Bills and Provide Top-Notch Insulation
Did you know that the way motorized shades are installed makes them the perfect insulators for your home? When our team of experts at Total Home Technologies install your shades, we place a considerable gap between the actual shade and the window. This “air gap” provides insulation in your rooms in any season.
And in the scorching summers, this air gap is crucial. Once your shades are lowered, they’ll provide the necessary insulation that keeps your indoors cool even when the temperatures are at a high outside.
This can also help lower your monthly bills as well. While your windows’ photosensors will alert your shades to lower, your home will stay cool without your HVAC needing to overwork itself. It can adjust to make your living space comfortable and work with your smart thermostat anytime a degree raises.
As your system isn’t going into overdrive trying to accommodate the heat inside your house, you won’t have to worry about skyrocketing bills. Now you can enjoy a relaxing time in your home this summer while also saving energy and money!
Easy-to-Use for Everyone
Whether you have lots of friends over for a summer movie night or are hosting a dinner party, your shades can offer that cooling atmosphere and bring an added luxury to your space. The best part? They’re easy for everyone to use.
Whether it’s you who’s picking up the smart device to lower or raise them back, or your friends using the wall panel to operate them, everyone can partake in benefiting from this smart solution.
