Here are Some Benefits of Motorized Blinds
In most homes light comes in from several different angles all throughout the day, every day, 365 days a year. There are times when this light can just be to overpowering, resulting in glare, brightness, heat gain, fading, and damage to your most valuable or even treasured possessions.
The following list details the major benefits of automatic shades:
1. Safety: (especially for children and the elderly)
Beyond aesthetics, injury and death from getting tangeled up in a blind or shade cord is a very real concern. The best solution is to eliminate these cords, and the best way to do that, is by motorizing your shades. If you have to step into bathtubs, reach over furniture, or climb a ladder, motorization is definitely the safest way to go.
Controlling hard-to-reach window coverings can be a problem, especially for the elderly and the handicapped. . Manually raising and lowering a shade is easy enough, but what if the shade is very large or very heavy? What if there are two, three, four, or more?
One touch privacy helps create the ideal environment whether you are preparing for a bath, relaxing in bed, or enjoying time with the family at home. With a battery powered wireless wall switch, the window coverings may be controlled when entering the room.
Switches may be programmed to automatically open and close, or raise and lower window coverings at different times during the day. This feature adds security while you are away or on vacation by giving the appearance that you are still at home.
How many times have you set down to watch your favorite television show or read the paper only to have to get back up and close some type of window treatment because of the annoying glare? What if you just needed to take a quick look outside?
The damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays on your floor coverings, furniture, wall coverings and valuable artwork. (Need I say more?)
Programming shades to raise or lower at certain times of the day helps to manage the heat gain in the summer months and the loss of heat you experience during the winter months. The accumulating heat from uncontrolled sunlight will also put a huge burden on your air conditioning system. Preset timers on your window coverings will block the sun and reduce the heat buildup automatically. This will put your mind at ease when you forget to raise or lower the blinds before leaving your home. For more information contact us today at 541-390-8354
