Can Motorized Shades Really Save Energy?


Rely Less on HVAC with Automated Window Shades 

With scorching hot summers and occasionally chilly winters, Dallas residents often rely heavily on air conditioning and heating systems to maintain a comfortable indoor environment. However, this constant need for temperature control comes at a cost: high energy bills and waste. 

According to the Energy Information Administration, the average household in Texas spends over $1,801 annually on energy bills, with a significant portion of that attributed to heating and cooling. Wouldn’t it be nice to use that money towards something else—a vacation, perhaps? Not to mention the environmental impact that energy consumption causes. Fortunately, there is a solution that can help you stay comfortable while saving money and reducing your energy—motorized shades.

Learn how motorized shades from smart home brands like Lutron can help your Dallas-Fort Worth home save energy automatically. And if you’re ready to bring motorized shading to your home? Contact Texadia Systems here to learn more.
