Technology has certainly made huge advances over the last century, and it has had a great effect on our way of life. From our entertainment to our grocery shopping to even our ice making, everything is electronic these days.
Window shades are no exception. Motorized window treatments, like other advances in technology, make our lives easier, but they do so much more. There are plenty of reasons why home and business owners should be using motorized shades for their windows. Here are five great ones.
Benefits of Motorized Shades
1. They are Convenient
Motorized shades make adjusting window shades easy and convenient, eliminating a major daily hassle. This is great for individuals who may have trouble getting around as well as employees who may have a large number of shades to open and close in a large office building.
2. They Come in Additional Sizes
Regular shades generally come in standard sizes, which may or may not fit the custom windows often found in office buildings. Motorized shades, on the other hand, are not restricted the way regular shades are, so they more easily be found in longer and wider sizes.
3. They Can Be Used in More Places
Many homes and office buildings have very high or very tall windows that are difficult if not impossible to access. Motorized shades are the perfect solution for these windows, as there is no need for anyone to be able to reach them, making it possible to adjust the shades that would otherwise not be adjustable.
4. They Can Reduce Heating and Cooling Costs
Not only can motorized shades be opened and closed with the touch of a button, but they can also be set on a timer. Using motorized shades on a timer is a great way to let the sunlight in and out as needed to keep heating and cooling costs at a minimum while maximizing comfort for everyone in the building.
5. They Offer Improved Home Security
Lastly, motorized shades can also help improve home security when they are set on a timer, as the daily opening and closing of the shades gives the illusion that someone is home. Motorized shades simply add an extra measure of security, making any would-be intruders believe that the building is occupied.
