How Motorized Window Treatments Can Reduce Sun Glare

Motorized Window Treatments

Long days are arguably most people’s favorite thing about spring and summer — that is until the sun casts a glare across their living room.

Whether you’re watching TV in the den or sitting down for dinner, no one wants the sun shining in their face. Thankfully, window treatments are one of the best ways to cut back on sun glare without completely blocking out natural light.

Reducing Sun Glare in Your Home

Programmable treatments make manual adjustments a thing of the past.

One of our clients’ favorite things about motorized treatments is that they can be programmed to open or close throughout the day. Just set them once and relax as they adjust themselves as the sun rises or sets.

Out-of-reach windows are no longer a problem.

There’s no denying that tall windows are a design element most homeowners love to find. However, they can make light control difficult if you can’t reach the top of the window. But with motorized blinds, shades, and shutters you can close your blinds in the late afternoon and open them the next morning all with the touch of a button.

Sun glare affects your energy efficiency.

Sun glare isn’t just an inconvenience, it can also be harming your home’s energy efficiency. Depending on where you live, direct sunlight can raise your home’s temperature several degrees throughout the day, causing your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to. But when you opt for motorized blinds on your windows, you can cut down on both sunlight and heat transfer.

Integrating with Smart Technology

Sun and temperature sensors can be added to your treatments so that they move according to the weather outside, not just a pre-set time. If it’s unseasonably warm, temperature sensors will draw them earlier than normal. Similarly, sun sensors will adjust your shades to control the amount of sunlight coming into your home on any given day.
