See Sunesta’s Patio & Window Awning Gallery for Shade Ideas That Will Add Beauty to Your Home
The Sunesta patio and window awning gallery is the perfect place to start picturing how your quest for shade can also accent your home’s exterior with style and a splash of color. There you’ll be able to see how our customers have used Sunesta Awnings to create comfortable outdoor living spaces or to shield their indoor areas from excessive sunlight streaming through windows and glass doors. And you’ll be impressed with the wide variety of colors, patterns, and styles available from Sunesta to help you customize your canopies to suit your personal taste and complement your home’s architectural features.
What doesn’t show in our window awning gallery are the energy-efficient features of these beautiful awnings. Consider these facts from the U.S. Department of Energy:
- An awning that shades a south-facing window can reduce solar heat gain inside the home by 65 percent, and that figure jumps to 77 percent for west-facing windows. That capability may reduce a homeowner’s consumption of valuable natural resources for cooling the indoor living area, as well as lower the household energy bill because of reduced demand on the HVAC system.
- Retractable awnings also can be used in the wintertime to reduce heating costs. Just retract the shade during the warm afternoon hours, and let heat from the sun penetrate your windows and glass doors.
Even if your primary interest in awnings is to have a covered poolside or deck area where you can relax and drink your favorite beverage, you’re likely to realize some reductions in energy use as a result of your engineered shade by Sunesta.
