Why Use Motorized Shades?
Manually raising and lowering your shades may not seem like a terribly difficult task, but there are some real advantages that motorized shades have over manual ones. If there’s a room with many different windows, closing all of the shades can be a tedious task that gets avoided more often than not.
If the shades are heavy, or if there are elderly living in your home, being able to control your window treatments with the push of a button can be a major advantage. Motorized shades or electric blinds are perfect for rooms with:
- Several windows
- Larger windows
- Windows that are blocked by furniture
- Second-story openings
If you’re having trouble with any of your window treatments, our professionals can help you convert them to motorized treatments, or we can help you find the perfect new motorized shades for your home.
Advantages of Motorized Shades
There are several advantages that you’ll gain from having motorized shades installed in your home. Here are a few:
- Get rid of unsightly cords.
Having several window shades in a room means that you’ll have multiple long cords dangling from your windows. These can make a room feel messy, cluttered, and disorganized even when it’s spic-and-span. Installing motorized shades will eliminate this problem.
- Improve safety.
If there are children in your home, serious injury or death can result from being entangled in those cords. Getting rid of them altogether will get rid of that risk.
- Improve energy efficiency.
Your main energy concern in the is your cooling costs, and letting sunlight into your home is one way to guarantee that you’ll be paying too much to keep your home cool. Electric shades can be programmed to open and close during the proper hours of the day, so that you’re not allowing heat in at the same time your AC is fighting to cool your home down.
- Add protection.
No matter what the angle of the sun’s rays is, you’ll be able to protect your flooring and furniture from damage quickly and easily with motorized shades. You can even synchronize your shades so that all of them move together with the push of one button.
