Motorization allows you to control your window coverings with the touch of a button, or even just the sound of your voice. You can set timers for your window coverings as well, allowing you to be in complete control of your home. There are several benefits to motorization beyond convenience. Read on to find out more.
1. Energy Savings
Motorization allows you to control the amount of light coming into any room at any given time. You can set your window coverings to lower during the hottest parts of the day when your room is receiving the most sun in the summer so your air conditioning doesn’t have to combat the extra warmth. Likewise, in the winter you can do the opposite to offset heating costs.
2. Furniture Protection
If the sun is having that much effect on your energy bills, you can imagine the damage that it is doing to your furniture. Don’t allow the sun’s harmful rays to dull your furniture or do damage to the color of your wood floors. Motorization can allow you to filter out all of the extra damaging light.
If you are on vacation, your empty house is a sitting duck. But, studies show that burglars are less likely to target your home if they think someone is there. By setting your window coverings to a timer, you can give the appearance that someone is around even when you are miles away.
With motorization you eliminate the need for dangling cords so there is no temptation for your children or pet to get caught up in them causing damage to your window coverings or harm to themselves.
5. Alarm Clock
The sun is nature’s best alarm clock. You can program your shades to raise and lower and different times during the day and use natural sunlight as your cue to wake up in the morning. What could be more fun than that?
