Benefits of Window Covering Motorization
- Motorization improves the child and pet safety of your window treatments. Even though much improvement has been made to window treatment cord systems, they can still pose a danger to kids and pets. Motorization removes cords completely, taking that risk away.
- Timers and advanced automation systems can help you save energy by reducing your heating and cooling costs. The right shades can help you save up 50% on energy costs.
- Some blinds and shades are very large, or in difficult to reach places such as up in skylights or behind bathtubs. Disabled people and the elderly may have trouble operating blinds and shades that are easy to operate for other people. Whatever your situation, automating your window fashions will bring added convenience to your daily life.
- Motorization options range from hard-wired to battery operated solutions. Many varieties of blinds, shades, and drapery can be motorized. Often, we can add motorization kits to your existing window coverings.
