Save Money with Motorized Shades

Cut Energy Costs and Protect Furniture with Automated Shades

Save Money with Motorized Shades

Many people know that motorized shades are extremely convenient. All the shades in a room can be opened and closed in unison through a wall panel, remote, or app. It’s quick, easy, and has a beautiful result.

Did you know motorized shades can save you money? Because of their ability to be automated and set on a timer, they can save homeowners hundreds of dollars a year by decreasing their home’s energy usage. That’s more money in your pocket, meaning your Stillwater, MN home’s carbon footprint is less. Keep reading to learn how motorized blinds can save you money!

Decrease Energy Usage

For most homeowners, the largest utility bill is typically electric. That’s because, in addition to powering all of your home’s outlets, energy also powers your heating and cooling. So in the summer and winter, your electric bill might skyrocket as your HVAC system tries to keep your house comfortable during the intense summer heat or frigid winter chill.

Your windows are one of the least insulated areas of the house, which is why window treatments are so important. You don’t want to keep your window closed half the year to preserve energy. With motorized window treatments, you can set them on a timer to open and close throughout the day. That way, you can still soak in the natural light and enjoy the views from your home, but your windows aren’t left open long enough to impact your home’s heating or cooling. 

Plus, if you leave a traditional shade open when you leave home, it will stay open all day until you get home, letting in outside heat or cold. With automated shades, you can close them remotely from your phone to prevent your HVAC from eating up energy to combat the outside air seeping in.

Protect Furniture and Artwork

The savings don’t stop there. Natural light in a home is fantastic, but did you know UV rays can damage your furniture and artwork? Too much exposure to sunlight can cause colors to fade and deteriorate. You don’t want the furniture and art you invested in getting ruined by the sun, which is why motorized blinds are so convenient. As they open and close automatically to protect your HVAC system, they will also prevent the items in your home from getting too much direct sunlight, preserving them for years to come.
