New Data Shows that Fabric Awnings & Exterior Shades Can Help Homeowners Reduce Cooling Costs by More than 50%
The benefits of awnings go way beyond aesthetic appeal. Awnings can save energy and protect furniture and floors from fading. In a typical home, more energy is transferred through glass doors and windows than through any other construction element.
A new energy study funded by The Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA), shows that fabric awnings or external shades can save homeowners as much as $200 annually by reducing the load on air conditioners (depending on where a home is located). The study calculates the impact of awnings in 50 cities across the United States and focused on older homes that are typically smaller and less insulated than newer construction. Resulting data supports awnings and solar shades as “smart” retrofits to help make older homes more energy efficient. To view the study slideshow go to www.Awninginfo.com.
Studies by the American Society of Heating & Air Conditioning Engineers show that during the period of the day when sun shines directly on southern-facing windows, a fabric awning reduces heat gain by 65 % and for Western exposure the reduction in heat is 77%. . Department of Energy website (www.eere.gov) focuses on improving energy efficiency for homes and the use of awnings as part of that solution.
