1. Keep Cool in the Summer

One of the most popular reasons for fitting an electric awning is to create a bit of shade in the garden for when the sun is too hot during the summer months. At the touch of a button, your awning will open out to cover your garden, patio or decking to provide some respite from the heat.

2. Extend Your Living Space

Electric awnings are a great, inexpensive way of extending your living space outside. An electric awning fitted above large patio, sliding or bi-fold doors can create the illusion that your room is much bigger than it is, and the area of useful space will extend beyond your outer walls.

3. Sit Outside during the Winter

Electric Awnings aren’t just for summer. Why not use your awning to enjoy a bit of alfresco dining or relaxation on those dry, crisp sunny winter days? The awning will create a bit of shelter from any wind or light rain and an integrated awning outdoor heater will keep you warm and toasty.

4. Save Energy and Money

If your rooms get hot during the summer, an electric awning can create some extra shade and really help  to reduce energy needed to power fans or air conditioning. Not only will you be doing your bit for the environment but you’ll save some money too!

5. Reduce Glare

Large patio, sliding and bi-fold doors look fantastic, but they can sometimes cause problems with glare. An electric awning will keep bright sunlight at bay when the sun is shining directly at the windows.

6. Create Privacy

If you are feeling a bit over-looked in your outdoor space, an electric awning can help to create some extra privacy, especially from above. This can be a great solution for apartment gardens where privacy from overlooking higher properties can be a problem.

7. Protect Furnishings

Protect your carpets, sofas, tables and chairs from sun damage with an electric awning. Simply open up the awning at the touch of a button to create shade when you need it most. This is especially effective for rooms with large windows or patio style doors.

Overall, electric awnings can provide many benefits to your property. Whether you want to save energy and reduce your bills, or simply make your outdoor space more usable and comfortable all year round, there are many reasons to fit an electric awning this year.
