In cases of heavy rain , or when the sun gets hot, the home automation system unroll the awning for near-instant protection and shade. Lab tests measurements have shown that it can be as much as 20 degrees cooler when under an awning’s canopy.
Because awnings can prevent the sun from shining through windows and sliding glass doors, they can keep temperatures inside cooler as well, which saves on air-conditioning costs. They can also help prevent carpets and furniture from fading in sunlight. Awnings can also provide a sheltered place for children and pets to play, shielded from direct sun.
Some of today’s awnings can also offer accessories that can greatly increase the versatility and usefulness owners get from their decks or patios. A screen room add-on can also easily turn an awning into a virtually bug-free outdoor room, side screening cuts down on wind and mist coming under the sides of awnings, and patio lights let people enjoy their decks evenings and nights.
It can also be used to cover the thermal solar panels in the summer.
