Did you know that solar radiation through glass accounts for around 20% of your air conditioner’s load? But fear not! With our top-of-the-line retractable awnings, you can prevent solar radiation from penetrating your glass surfaces, resulting in substantial energy savings compared to film and tinted glass alternatives. According to the renowned American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers, fabric awnings can reduce heat gain by an impressive 55-65% during direct sunlight hours for southern-facing windows and glass doors. For those with western exposure, prepare to experience a remarkable heat gain reduction of 72-77%. This translates to significant savings in both energy consumption and costs!

Unveiling a Groundbreaking Study: Awnings’ Impact on Energy Use and Peak Demand

Backed by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA) and conducted by the esteemed Center for Sustainable Building Research at the University of Minnesota, a groundbreaking study titled “Awnings in Residential Buildings: The Impact on Energy Use and Peak Demand” was released in August 2007. This study measured the impact of awnings in seven diverse U.S. cities, including Minneapolis, Boston, Seattle, Albuquerque, Phoenix, St. Louis, and Sacramento, representing various climates.

The study’s findings were remarkable. In all cities and for all orientations of windows and glass doors tested, using awnings resulted in significant savings in cooling costs and peak electricity demand. The amount of energy saved varied based on factors such as the number of windows and glass doors, the type of glass used, and window orientation. To delve deeper into the comprehensive results, refer to the table below showcasing savings when the majority of windows and glass doors face the South side.
