Summer is best spent outside, but sometimes the weather has other plans. Whether it’s beaming heat from the sun or a summer shower, your outdoor plans can quickly be thwarted. With a SunSetter awning, you don’t have to worry about Mother Nature. Plus, it offers several other benefits that make it a worthwhile addition to your home. Read below for the top benefits of installing a SunSetter awning in your outdoor space:
1.) Protection from the Weather and Elements
The best benefit of a SunSetter awning is that it allows you to spend more time outside. The water-resistant woven acrylic fabric keeps you safe from passing showers and direct sunlight, but easily retracts when you’re ready to enjoy the weather. Since the Sunsetter is such a durable awning, it has proven to withstand winds of 50 to 75 mph in tests by an independent laboratory. It even has a wireless wind sensor accessory that can detect damaging wind conditions and retract the awning automatically! You can also make your deck or patio insect-free with a SunSetter Screen Room.
2.) UV Protection and Shade
In addition to coverage from direct sunlight, the SunSetter awning also blocks 99% of UV rays. This ensures that you and your family are protected from the sun’s harmful effects. With this protection, the opened awning can function as a safe outdoor play place for your children and pets. This means far less repeated sunscreen applications! The UV protection can also help prevent outdoor patio furniture and other items from fading over time!
3.) Energy Savings
The shade provided by a SunSetter awning can be up to 20 degrees cooler than the surrounding areas. Twenty degrees! This means that you don’t have to use additional cooling devices like fans to be comfortable sitting outside. Plus, when your awning blocks your home’s exterior walls, doors and windows from the sun, it will make your home’s interior cooler too!
4.) Ease of Use
Sunsetter awnings can be either manual or motorized models. The manual model utilizes a simple hand crank to bring out and retract the awning. The motorized models use a one-touch remote control for even easier operation. In either case, using your Sunsetter retractable awning is convenient for all ages!
The benefits of an awning far outweigh the costs. With the above advantages, an easy installation (smaller awnings can be installed in as little as 3 hours), and a five year limited warranty, there’s no better way to create a cool and safe outdoor space for you and your family to enjoy.
