Why Consider Window Awnings?
- Awnings can reduce a home's internal temperature by 8 to 15 degrees
- Solar radiation through glass is responsible for approximately 20% of the load on a residential air conditioner
- On a hot day, more energy is lost through one square foot of glass than through an entire insulated wall
- A fabric awning reduced heat gain by 55% to 65% during the period of the day when the sun shines directly on southern facing windows, and 72% to 77 % for western exposures
It is important to select a style that will accommodate how much sun penetrates the windows. Awning Design has installed just about every type of window awnings throughout New Jersey. If you have any questions about our products, please contact us today.
Choose the type of window awning which best suites your needs, based on which direction your windows are facing:
- Southern and Western exposure: Homes with windows on the southern and western sides have the potential for extreme heat gain. A great option to help block the sun is the use of awning with sides for added protection.
- Northern and Eastern exposure: You might want less coverage at times and a retractable window awning could be a terrific solution.
- Make the most out of New Jersey's changing seasons: In order to take advantage of the sun's warmth during the winter, some awnings are designed to roll up out of the away and others can be removed and stored away.
