Awning Benefits

The benefits of awnings go far beyond aesthetic appeal.

The benefits of awnings go far beyond aesthetic appeal.

  • Awnings and canopies can extend your living space by creating an “outdoor room.”
  • Sunbrella fabrics have been proven to provide up to 98 percent protection from the sun’s harmful effects when used in shade applications.
  • Awnings protect interior drapes, furnishings, and floor coverings from undue fading.

Awnings are a great way to conserve energy.

  • According to the California Energy Commission, shading your home with exterior awnings can reduce indoor temperatures by as much as 20 degrees.
  • U.S. Department of Energy and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) studies show that an awning can reduce heat gain by 55 to 65 percent on southern-facing windows and 72 to 77 percent on western exposures.
  • Since awning fabric doesn’t trap heat or moisture, an awning can reduce air-conditioning costs by as much as 25%.
