Let Your Awning Help Save on Your Energy Bills
An awning’s benefits extend inside your home, too. An awning will keep your energy costs down by blocking the sun’s heat in warmer months. Studies have shown that an awning can reduce interior heat-gain by 55-65 percent on a south-facing window and 72-77 percent on a westerly exposure.
Plus, you can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors from inside, since you won’t have to close blinds or draw drapes as often. And a retractable awning lets you decide how much sun to let in. Allowing Mother Nature to contribute some warmth to your home is a great solution for early mornings and throughout the cooler months. Spring, summer, winter and fall – your awning will serve you indoors and out.
When we recover your awning, we’ll take away the old cover for recycling if you don’t want it. Woven-acrylic fabric, commonly used for awnings, takes hundreds of years to break down in a landfill.
However, the fibre from your old awning cover can be up-cycled into new products or recycled with minimal energy input into new materials. For example, the new Sunbrella® line of “Renaissance” fabric uses recycled post-industrial fabric waste – while looking simply beautiful.
