Energy Saving

Most of us can’t imagine blocking what little light we get into our homes, but the sun exposure all day can literally cost us a lot of money. Did you hear about the Net Zero concept? W It means that a building produces as much energy as it uses over the course of a year. You too can balance the energy consumption in your home, by tapping into solar power, insulating your home and installing automated shades, awnings or shutters. You can also use traditional ways to cool your house, like plant a shade tree outside! Just remember to leave enough room for growth. Source: SomfySystems


Using motorized shades, the location of the shades is no longer restricted by the proximity to the ground or the ability to manually adjust the shades. Very high windows can be fitted with motorized shades and can be adjusted as required. This benefit is important in public buildings and large homes. Source: WiseGeek
