MOTORIZED SHADING PROVIDES UV PROTECTION FOR YOUR HOME FURNISHINGS

Posted July 6, 2018

Covering the glass with shades, blinds and draperies is an obvious solution to your sun-conundrum. But you actually need to use those window treatments—and use them wisely--to realize their full benefits. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, at least 75 percent of window coverings remain in the same position on a daily basis. There are countless reasons why: Depending on the number of windows in your home, adjusting each shade manually can be a terribly tedious exercise. If any of these windows are difficult to reach … forget about it. Then there’s this thing called life: You’re busy working, traveling, barely home long enough to take out the trash much less fiddle with the window blinds. For all of these reasons, motorized window coverings can be one of the best investments for a smart home. They’ll save time and money, protect your home’s interior, and ensure a comfortable home environment.
