Motorized Shades Are Perfect for Winter

Houston winters are mild, but you can still benefit

Motorized Shades Are Perfect for Winter

Even though the local climate doesn’t get too cold, we still experience some chilly days in the depths of winter. For many homeowners, that means adjusting their thermostats -- and driving up their energy bill. Instead, there must be a solution that helps minimize heat loss while regulating the temperature in your space. Motorized shades are a great way to do it. In this blog, we’ll show you why you should add them to your home before the winter is over. Keep reading for more.


Why Shades Are Essential

During the winter, window shades are essential. They help keep the heat in your home rather than escaping through the windows. Most of the heat in your space will leave the room through the thin pane of glass, and by covering them, you can prevent most of the heat loss.

But, of course, you probably have shades or blinds on your windows. They do more than just look good. They help add privacy, enhance security, manage light, and regulate your room’s temperature.

How Motorization Helps

Motorizations means your shades move without you drawing them. With just a touch of a button, they'll move up and down instantly, and in unison, so you can enjoy quick adjustments to the light and temperature regulation of the room.

And as part of a smart control system, they do it automatically. Your shades, thermostat, lights, and other connected devices automatically adjust when the room gets too cold. That means less pressure on your HVAC system, and less time spent making adjustments to your rooms.

An array of sensors and other devices will help prompt your shades to spring into action whenever you need them to. And when you decide you’d prefer more light, a tap of the button will adjust them back to your desired setting.
