Residential Awnings: Better for your pocket, better for the environment!
The benefits of adding an awning(s) to your home go beyond the protection it provides from the rain and sun, and the additional living space and enhanced exterior décor it offers. Window and door awnings cool the inside of your home too, requiring less use of your air conditioning which translates to lower energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint. The Professional Awning Manufacturer’s Association discusses an awning’s impact on energy savings costs at length in a recent study they published.
The money you save by using an exterior shade or awning (up to $200 annually) over its 12 year life expectancy will almost cover the cost of the awning itself!
