Window coverings and shades have been around for hundreds of years, but it is quite recent that motorized shades have become more and more common in households and commercial buildings. These offer a wide range of benefits, including the ability to more effectively utilize natural light as well as program the shades to open and close remotely or by a timer to keep the appearance of your home being lived in if you are out of town. This article will discuss some of these benefits in more detail, as well as others.
Newer buildings are being designed to utilize as much natural sunlight as possible, both for aesthetic reasons, as well as eco-friendly reasons, among others. Usually, the more sunlight an architect wishes to utilize, the more windows the structure possess. Sometimes these windows can be difficult to reach, they can be an odd shape, or both. In these cases, it’s not convenient or necessarily easy for someone to manually draw the shades. This is where motorized shades come in handy. They can simplify the routine of opening and closing window treatments without forcing one to try to gain access to hard-to-reach places. With today’s advancing technology of motorized window treatments, you can even have a control panel installed in a wall or use a remote for the more inaccessible windows.
When you are out of your home for any amount of time, an important security element to keeping your home safe is trying to maintain a lived-in look so that any would-be robbers or trouble-makers are deterred from breaking and entering or committing any other deviant behavior. Motorized shades can be programmed on a timer to open and shut to project the appearance that people are still at home. They can also be integrated into home security systems so that the window treatments open if the home alarm is triggered for any reason.
Another added benefit for motorized shades are the potential tax rebates you might be able to take advantage of. More and more tax rebates are being made available to those who purchase eco-friendly and energy saving products. By purchasing these items, you can apply for a rebate from the appropriate governing body.
