The Benefits Of Retractable Canopies
Retractable Canopies – Reduce Energy Cost, Add Value!
As a New Zealand society we have seen a dramatic shift to become “eco-greener” with the goal of energy efficiency as a main priority.
By installing a retractable canopy / awning you can now go green by reducing energy costs and add value to your home in the process.
A recent report from the Professional Awning Manufactures Association, has show that awnings and canopies can reduce air conditioning costs by as much as 25%.
How do canopies save on energy costs?
An installed canopy keeps your house cooler by deflecting the hot sun rays entering through windows, and in the process saves you money on cooling your home.
Also because an installed canopy is an ideal family area you can save big on energy bills by spending less time indoors utilising air conditioning and lights.
By filtering the amount of incoming light, an installed canopy can help reduce the fading of furniture, carpeting, and curtains.
Based on a recent study completed by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning, exterior mounted shading systems such as awnings and canopies can reduce inside heat gain by up to 77% and also reduce water and heat damage to patios, decks, pool decks, and balcony surfaces.
Retractable canopies not only have the potential to reduce your energy cost and consumption, but they also add style and comfort by increasing your living space outdoors to enjoy with friends and family.
A retractable canopy provides an easily accessible outdoor living space in which anyone can relax.
A retractable canopy instantly increases your home’s value as it creates additional space that didn’t previously exist.
Gone are the days of increasing your home value through costly and arduous home renovations.
New Zealand home owners are now thinking smart and expanding their outdoor space all while adding curb appeal.
