The Benefits of Automated Blinds in Gilbert
The benefits of investing in automated window shades are many, including energy savings, lighting control, and convenience. Our staff at Athena’s Window Fashions in Gilbert can help take your home to the next level, with custom automated blinds. Take a look at these benefits of automated blinds to see if they might be a good fit for your home. We carry Hunter Douglas PowerView shades as well as many other brands.
Manually opening and closing the shades can be a chore, especially for large windows. By installing automated window shades, you can raise and lower blinds at the touch of a button. Additionally, with motorization, you can set them to raise and lower on a customized schedule.
Automation of your shades can be used to make it look like someone is home even if you’re away. Many automated window treatments can be closed or opened using an app on your phone, allowing you to operate your window treatments at different times or set them on an automatic timer. Combine this with automated lights in your home, and you can create the appearance of continuing activity in your house, making your home much safer while you’re on vacation.
3. Energy Savings
The heat that passes through the window panes on hot Arizona days, called solar gain, is hard on your air conditioner. By covering your windows at the touch of a button, your AC doesn’t have to run as often. There are also sensors you can have installed that will signal the automated blinds to close when they sense the bright sun coming in.
Automated blinds don’t have dangly cords that can be a hazard for children and pets.
5. Aesthetic Appeal
With cords, it can be difficult to get the shades into the exact position you want, creating an aesthetic problem. By motorizing them, they can move easily to the exact position you specify. With such precise movements at your fingertips, you can align them with blinds in your other windows so that all of your blinds open at the same level.
6. Increase the Value of Your Home
Aside from the general aesthetic appeal your home will gain by switching to automated blinds, they’ll also increases the value of your home. You’ll be giving your home a competitive advantage over other homes on the market.
