Shade Tips

Here are a few thoughts on the benefits of adding
the right amount of  shade to your home now!

In the spring and summer many start to think about keeping your home cool and ways to make that happen for many reasons. Reasons like reducing your air conditioning bills or electrical energy bills. As a window replacement company we always like to start with replacement windows first, but today we want to talk about other ways to shade your home and reduce the amount of energy it might need to keep it cool in the spring and summer months of the year, or just when it is humid in Toledo, Ohio – not to mention the Great Lake cities all over from the far east Sandusky, Ohio to the western cities around Bryan, Ohio!

Many people – again often more times in the city and less rural areas – are lucky enough to have more natural shade with lots of trees, evergreens, shrubs and what not. However, many home owners have a real need to create their own shade for their home.

Landscapers will insist Spring is the perfect time of year to begin planting around your home to add a natural and beautiful way to keep your home cool and reduce your energy bills. It has been explained if you carefully position the right trees you can save up to 25% of the energy a typical household uses for energy! Wow! That sounds great doesn’t it? Seasonal shading trees, or what landscapers refer to as dense shading, deciduous trees, are considered the best for shade. These type of shade trees should be planted on the south-side of your home or where the shade is needed most. Make sure to plant them so they will cast a shadow to the south-facing windows as they mature.

BUT what if you are not able to plant trees – or just do not want to plant any trees!

No problem there are many other options, including our favorite methods, such as shades, oveSunsetter Retractable Awningrhangs and retractable awnings that can be used to shade your home.
