What to Consider When Choosing Motorized Shades

The versatility and convenience of installing motorized window treatments in your home create a wide variety of benefits that affect its appearance, energy savings and overall safety. It can be a small or large investment depending on how many windows you have and the size of them, but it’s an investment you should consider. To help you determine whether or not motorized shades are the right fit for you, here are a few things you should know.

They Promote Energy Efficiency

On those extremely sunny days, it takes little to no effort to lower your motorized shades and minimize the heat entering your home. This means that you won’t be turning on the air conditioning as often. On cooler days, having open shades will fill your home with natural lighting, eliminating the need for you to waste energy turning on your lights.

They Look Cleaner than Drapes

Much of the mechanisms for motorized shades are concealed by the fabric of the shades, giving them a sleek, modern look while still being fully functional. You don’t have to look at unsightly cords when you choose to have motorized shades installed. You can allow program them to rise and fall in unison, creating a seamless look among all of your windows.

It’s a Customizable Choice

Do you have windows that aren’t your typical rectangular shape? Then it’s a good thing that motorized window coverings can be customized to fit any window shape perfectly. Not to mention there’s no shortage of fabric choices with this option. You can have a custom motorized window treatment that suits your home perfectly.

They’re Quiet and Smooth

If you’re an early riser and don’t want to wake anyone up, you don’t have to worry about making a lot of noise when opening your shades. With well-tuned motors and advancements in window treatment mechanisms, you can have a smooth and quiet set of motorized blinds.

They’re Battery or A/C Operated

There are a few different ways to power motorized shades. When they were first introduced, electrical power was the only way to enable the motors. However, now can have a battery driven unit or hook it up to your A/Cs power outlet, especially if you live in an apartment or condo.

They’re Safer than Manual Shades

With motorized window coverings, there’s no need to worry about pets or young children getting tangled up in the pull cords that accompany manual blinds. Keep them safe, as well as your shades, by going the motorized route.
