Automatic awnings are an excellent option to improve the energy efficiency of a home or commercial space. In addition to reducing heat input and direct exposure to sunlight, awnings contribute significantly to energy savings.
According to a recent study mentioned in the Digital Journal news, the awning market is estimated to grow by approximately 7.3% during the period from 2022 to 2030.
A growth driven by several factors, including the growing awareness of energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, as well as the search for solutions that offer comfort and protection in outdoor spaces.
Another study carried out by the Textile Technology Center confirms and highlights the importance of awnings in energy efficiency and provides relevant data on some of the economic and environmental benefits associated with their use.
Some of the key findings and insights highlighted in the study include:
- Reduction of energy consumption
- Year-round benefits
- Protection against UV rays
- Contribution to sustainability
In this article, we will explore in more detail some of the mentioned results.
Read on to find out more.
Reducing energy consumption with automatic awnings
According to the previously mentioned study, automatic awnings have the potential to reduce the need for cooling spaces by up to 25%, which results in a significant decrease in energy consumption associated with air conditioning.
By blocking direct sunlight, awnings help keep spaces cooler and more comfortable.
Automatic awnings and their year-round benefits
Automatic awnings provide significant benefits all year round, regardless of the season.
During the warmer months, they are especially useful for controlling excessive heat, and can be programmed to open automatically when the sun’s rays are at their strongest.
In the colder months, the awnings can be adjusted to let in the sun in order to naturally heat the spaces and reduce dependence on heaters.
Protection against UV rays and other weather conditions
In addition to the benefits related to temperature, automatic awnings are manufactured with high quality materials that filter harmful sunlight and resist rainy days, providing protection to people as well as furniture and objects present in outdoor spaces.
This protection helps prolong the useful life of exposed objects and prevents wear and tear.
Contribution to sustainability
By reducing energy consumption related to refrigeration (air conditioning and heaters), automatic awnings contribute to environmental sustainability, help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the associated environmental impact.
The increase in demand for automatic awnings reflects the increasing adoption of these systems by people who want to make the most of their outdoor spaces, while looking for economically viable and ecologically responsible solutions.
