4 Reasons You Need to Invest in Remote Control Blinds and Shades

temp-post-image


An increasing number of people are choosing remote control blinds and shades for their homes instead of their traditional counterparts. Remote control shades and blinds eliminate the need to get up from your chair or bed every time you want to adjust them.


If you have kids or pets at home, it makes sense to swap existing manual blinds and shades for new remote control blinds and shades, as unlike traditional blinds and shades, they don’t have cords that pose a significant strangulation hazard.


Motorized blinds and shades are the preferred choice amongst homeowners with multiple windows (some of which might be located in hard to reach areas).


Here are some benefits of remote-control blinds for homes in Sonoma.


Help Reduce Your Electricity Consumption


You can use your remote control shades and blinds to control the amount of sunlight that enters your home. In summer, you can reduce the amount of sunlight that enters your home by programming your remote control shades to close during the hottest time of the day and open them at night to facilitate cross-ventilation. Similarly in winter, you can program your remote-control blinds and shades to automatically open when the sun shines. A cool home in summer and a warm home in winter will reduce the need for heating and cooling.


Program your remote-control shades and blinds to open during certain times of the day to add natural light to your home, so you don’t need to turn the lights on when performing your daily routine during the daytime.


Enhance the Aesthetics of Your Rooms


Many homeowners think that motorized blinds and shades are dull and boring. However, nothing could be further from the truth.


Motorized blinds and shades are available in a wide range of styles, materials, colors, and designs. Whether you have a classic Victorian house or live in a contemporary home, you will find window treatments that will complement its decor.


Help You Secure Your Home


When you go on a vacation and leaving your home unattended, a burglar may see an opportunity to break into your property. To make it look you’re home, program your motorized shades and blinds to automatically open and close during certain times of the day. This will improve home security as most burglars won’t target an occupied home.


Offer Protection Against Sun Damage


Long-term exposure to sunlight can fade your furniture, window treatments, and flooring. To minimize sun exposure, program your blinds and shades to close during certain times of the day.
