WHAT ARE AUTOMATIC SHADES or BLINDS?
Window shade systems can be programmed to raise and lower automatically based on the home's temperature or time of day/year. Beyond, the obvious convenience of these motorized systems, they can have a dramatic effect on energy bills throughout the year. These systems can be controlled manually via custom wall switches and smartphone apps but can also be programmed to address the home's indoor temperature and limit the demand on HVAC systems.
HOW DO THEY EFFECT HOME COSTS?
There are a ton of brands and products available for automatic shades or blinds. And while the initial installation is quite costly in comparison to manual shades, the reduction in energy consumption will lead to long-term savings.
