Motorized window blinds are one of the most popular window treatments on the market today. By simply installing automated window blinds in your home, you can elevate your home’s convenience, beauty and protection while saving money in the long run.
If you’re on the fence about making the switch from average window blinds to motorized, continue reading below to find out the top four reasons why motorized blinds are one of the most popular window treatments today:
Noticeable Energy Savings
According to the Attachments Energy Rating Council (AERC), window attachments can improve the performance of windows and save up to 13% of a household’s annual energy use. AERC also stated that roller shades on a single pane window can save up to $180 annually — imagine the savings you could see if you installed motorized blinds in every window throughout your house!
According to Angie’s List, convenience is the number one reason homeowners switch to motorized window treatments. There are even some motorized blinds that have a sun sensor built into them that will automatically close when the sun is shining at its brightest during the day. You’ll be able to keep the house cool and comfortable during the summer months without having to move from the couch.
Enjoy the Feeling of Safety
You can install automated window blinds in your home that will open and close according to the schedule that you set for it. You will never have to worry about whether or not you closed the blinds then next time you go out to dinner with your family because you have scheduled them to go down at 6:30 p.m. sharp.
Adding a Touch of Elegance
It doesn’t matter if your motorized shades are up or down, you will always have a cohesive and clean look to your window shades. You no longer have to deal with unruly drapes that are hard to pull to either side and leave a small but noticeable gap when pulled closed. You also won’t have to work on getting each of your blinds to line up like you had to do with your other blinds.
