Ready, Set, Summer: Protecting Yourself from New Jersey’s Heat

Sure, New Jersey’s shores are infamous, but the summer heat isn’t limited to any one location.

In fact, this summer, you may find yourself more inclined to relish relaxation from your own poolside, patio, or pergola — and who could blame you? Of course, New Jersey’s heat isn’t something to be underestimated, and protecting yourself is paramount if you’re to enjoy it to its fullest.

The only question you may be asking, then, is how?

Safety on the Surface

According to the climatological data provided by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), New Jersey’s overall UV index rating — or the level of direct sunlight and UV radiation the state receives — is rated at about a 6 by the month of June. In other words, New Jersey is subject to high UV exposure in the summer, thereby putting state residents at risk of developing sunburns and skin damage, if not skin cancer or other topical diseases over longer periods of time.

Thus, protection from the summer sun in New Jersey isn’t just a matter of keeping cool and comfortable; rather, it’s a matter of safety with regard to sun exposure and its long-term impact.

And one of the best ways to protect yourself and other loved ones from a sweltering summer? With a custom-made, retractable awning! Not only can the right awning provide you with shade that will allow you to remain safe while outdoors, but it can also help you stay up to 20 degrees cooler, thereby also keeping you safe from the inside-out.

When Home Is Where the Heat Is

Summer temperatures in New Jersey tend to range from hot to hotter the farther south you go, what with the temperatures steadily creeping up toward the 90s by August. And with the heat, you’ll find you won’t only be concerned about your health, but your energy bill.

After all, heat can be one of the most penetrating of annual elements, both capable of stifling your HVAC and convincing you to sacrifice your budget for the sake of your indoor comfort.

That being said, who said awnings were only for your patio? Door and window awnings can protect your home in much the same way they protect you: by deflecting the sun and fending off heatwaves.

Consequently, not only will you feel a noticeable difference when you step back inside, but your wallet will feel similar relief. Oh, and don’t forget the added bonus of protecting your property from fading in the direct sunlight.

Keeping it All Fun and Games

We’ve touched on your home, your health, and the general climate, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t at least touch on the merits of protecting your summer fun.

Ultimately, summer is known for being the season of enjoyment and entertainment. Whether you’re hosting a backyard party or simply cherishing the warm breezes with a cold drink in hand, what would these months be without simple outdoor pleasures?

That’s why a custom-designed retractable screen is a wise investment for those living in New Jersey — because you won’t only be reaping similar benefits to that of an awning, but you’ll also be adding an enhanced level of security from both bugs and prying eyes. With the right screen, nothing can spoil your seasonal fun.
