Sometimes, natural light is the best way to brighten up your home. Other times, you may want your home's blinds closed for privacy or security reasons. Installing motorized window treatments in your Nashville, TN, home prevents you from going around your rooms and manually opening and closing your shades. Instead, you can tap a button and open and close your shades, even if you are away. Here are five reasons to consider installing motorized window treatments.
Perhaps you want privacy as you prepare to sleep for the night or to protect your home while away on vacation. Motorized window treatments allow you to close your shades within seconds to give you more privacy. In addition, if you program your shades to open and close automatically throughout the day, it makes your home appear occupied, even when you are away. This automation keeps you safe and can prevent your home from being targeted for break-ins.
On a hot summer day, the sun’s rays can heat your house, causing your home’s cooling system to work overtime to keep the living space at the set temperature. This runs up your electricity bill and increases your energy usage. The ability to close all your shades within seconds can prevent this overheating, creating better insulation and helping you become more environmentally friendly.
Prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays can damage your furniture and artwork by causing colors to fade. Motorized blinds, shades, and drapes can prevent damage to your possessions by limiting exposure to the sun, keepin colors vivid for years of enjoyment.
