Secure Shade and Bring the Outdoors Indoors This Spring

At Toledo Door and Window we suggest for your spring project is to add a retractable awning! Awnings are the ultimate in convenience, protection, and affordability when it comes to bringing the sun in without all the harsh rays.

As a matter of fact, according to the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers solar radiation through glass is responsible for approximately twenty percent of the air conditioner load. Outside shade products like our beautiful retractable and stationary awnings prevent solar radiation from penetrating through the glass at an alarming rate. Awnings can further substantially increase the amount of energy saved when compared to tinted glass and other film-like home alternatives. 

The recent study further discovered that fabric awnings reduce the amount of  heat gain by fifty-five to sixty-five percent during the time of the day when the sun directly shines on the southern exposure of windows and glass patio doors. Whereas, for western patio door and window exposure, the amount of reduction in heat gain is even more penetrating at seventy-two to seventy-seven percent according to the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers! Therefore, installing an awning can create both a substantial savings when it comes to overall energy use and high utility costs.
