The High Desert is loved for its abundance of sunshine and warm days. In summer, high temperatures and blazing heat are also part of the mix.
Installing Motorized Shades in Victorville
There are many brands of motorized shades available in all types of fabric and designs. Motorized window coverings use a small motor and a special track for allowing the automatic opening and closing of the curtain with a remote control or a programmable device.
Once installed, a motorized drape allows you to open or close the curtains from the comfort of the couch, or from a coffee shop across town.
Programmable motorized drape openers let you set the time of day when you want the curtains to open and close. This is useful for preventing the sunshine from coming in through a window and heating the room during the day, or for keeping the room warmer at night.
Programmable automatic curtains also provide increased security when you are away from home by making it look like someone is home opening and closing the curtains.
Some of the other benefits from having curtains that open and close themselves are:
- Protecting furniture, carpets, and artwork from fading due to exposure to sunlight,
- Curtains and drapes with motorized openers are handled less, resulting in less need for cleaning or repairs to manual pull-cords.
- Improved privacy inside the house results from installing automatic motorized curtains because you do not have to remember to close the drapes.
- Greater ease and less effort when opening and closing heavy drapery.
Lower energy bills for heating and cooling are another big benefit of installing motorized, programmable drapes and curtains in your home. When window coverings are opened and closed at the right time of day to prevent heat transfer from outside, you can reduce your energy bills by as much as 10 percent.
