Energy Savings


Awnings Save Energy

Did you know that a typical home loses energy through glass windows and doors more than any other element in a home?

A fabric awning installed over windows and patio doors will reduce heat gain by 55 to 65% as reported by the American Society of Air Conditioning Engineers, and can reduce the inside temperature of your home by 8 to 15 degrees.

Not only do today’s awnings offer you great savings benefits, they also prevent solar radiation from penetrating through the glass in your home and substantially increases the energy savings. When selecting awnings and fabrics for your home, ask our trained staff at Austin Canvas & Awnings what the best options are for your project.
