The real question is: Why not switch to motorized window treatments?
There are many benefits: The ability to control your shades or blinds with the touch of a button. Freedom from unsightly cords that pose a risk to children and animals. Cost reductions on your home heating bills. Transforming your living room into a media room with home theater integration as well as improving your sleep quality that helps you wake up naturally.
Are motorized window treatments right for you and your home?
Great question! That depends on what you need! Today, I’m sharing the top 4 benefits of motorized window treatments and how they can impact your life for the better.
1. Motorized Treatments Increase Energy Efficiency
Did you know that motorized window treatments can save you money long-term?
It’s true. With lowered costs on energy bills, not to mention better preserving your furnishings and floorings from sun damage, the long-term gains are definitely there. Motorized drapery and shades are cordless and can open or close via remote control, smartphone app, or voice commands, making them ideal for tall, hard-to-reach windows.
Switching to motorized window treatments adds convenience to your busy life by automating the balance of natural and artificial light in your home. Schedule your motorized blinds and shades to open and close on the schedule that’s best for you and your family. Let the morning light in when you wake up, but keep the glare away when you need to focus, and even increase energy efficiency in your home.
2. Long-Term Money Savings
Effective management of energy consumption is and will continue to be a growing trend among homeowners.
Installing motorized shades, sheers, and blinds can be a part of home integrations to increase energy efficiency. With automated, hub based smart thermostat systems like the Nest®, Ecobee®, Lyric® , or Honeywell®, it’s easy to integrate your motorized window treatments.
Motorized window treatments allow you to control room temperature with window adjustments before using the HVAC system to heat or cool your home! Installing a sun sensor with your smart-home devices means your blinds can lower or raise on their own even if you’re away, effectively managing your home’s heat gain during the summer months and heat loss in the wintertime.
Simply push a button to lower your shades at any time and even set up automated scenes to close your window coverings at the desired times daily. The possibilities are endless; they may be battery operated, hardwired, app controlled, automated, and completely customized to your needs and schedule.
Controlling window treatments to raise or lower all at once with a remote or app is a true touch of luxury.
3. Motorized Treatments are Always Child-Safe
If you’ve got children or pets at home, going cordless with motorized window coverings provides additional safety for the ones you love. Children are innately curious about the world around them. So, even basic household items like window fashions can turn into potential hazards for them.
