Once considered a novelty upgrade only available to the rich and famous, motorized window treatments have become a popular choice for both residential and commercial spaces. Not only are motorized window coverings pleasing to the eye, they practical and beneficial.
Here are a few reasons you should consider motorized window treatments:
1. They conserve energy
There are several ways motorized window treatments can be used to help you save on energy costs.
Scheduling and programing your shades allows you to control how much light and heat can enter your space, even when you aren’t there. This can help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature without putting a strain on your cooling or heating system.
Some motorized window treatments can also be paired with a special sensor that signals them to close and open based on outside temperature and lighting.
2. They make your home and office easily accessible to everyone.
Whether you are elderly, disabled, or your windows are just too high, motorized window treatments allow you to control lighting, glare, and privacy with the push of a button.
3. They are one of the safest options
Not only are cords a bit tacky, they are a safety hazard as well. Motorized window treatments do not require a cord or chain to function. This is a better option for homes with small children or pets. Because of this, most motorized options have been certified as “Safe for Kids” by the Window Covering Safety Council.
4. They Are User Friendly and Convenient
Motorized Window treatments give you the convenience of scheduling you shade to open and close whenever you’d like. And for most brands, you don’t even have to be home to do this!
