We provide the propane delivery that keeps your BBQ grill, pool heater, space heater, and a variety of other backyard-enhancing products fueled. However, did you know that we also install awnings? Well, we do! And they make a great addition to any outdoor space.
Spring is here. Summer is just around the corner. Now is the perfect time to take another look at how you use your backyard and consider installing an awning to help you get even more mileage out of it.
There are lots of great reasons to add an awning to your backyard. Let’s take a look at a few.
With an awning, a bit of rain doesn’t spoil the fun. You’ve got the cover you need to stay dry outdoors. Similarly, if it’s a scorching hot day, an awning will give you shady relief from the sun. And it blocks 99% of harmful UV rays. Enjoy being outdoors more days of the year with an awning.
Adding an awning to your home is good for your budget because the awning will keep direct sunlight from raising the temperature inside your house. That means you’ll save money on energy costs all summer and fall, because you won’t have to run you AC as much to keep your home as cool.
Another way awnings help you save money is by preserving your furniture and other possessions. By preventing as much direct sunlight from passing through your windows, an awning will protect your furniture (as well as things like photographs) from fading due to exposure to sunlight.
A retractable awning is a fantastic option for anyone who cares about the environment and wants to reduce his or her carbon footprint. We’ve already explored how an awning will save you money on cooling your home, but that saved money is also saved energy, and that’s great for the environment.
Don’t just take our word for it. Studies have shown that awnings are a simple and cost-effective way to lower electricity usage. It can be up to 20 degrees cooler under your awning. According to the EPA, cooling costs can be reduced by more than 25% in homes with a retractable awning.
