When we’ve discussed motorized window treatments before, we’ve talked about some of their benefits, from cost savings to design. Homeowners and business managers alike praise how they save energy year-round and preserve more sunlight during cloudy winter months and complement their design goals year-round.
However, you might still have some reservations before making this purchase, partly due to widespread rumors you could have possibly heard from people who tried an inferior product from a less detail-oriented integrator.
Still on the fence about motorized shades and how they’d fit into your Lahaina, HI, home? We’ve outlined four of the most common myths about them to show you why they’re still one of the most versatile, secretly powerful automation investments available today. Read on!
One common misconception states that motorized shades make too much noise, especially when multiple devices operate simultaneously. Lutron’s wireless design minimizes noise to less than a whisper. Their Hembar Alignment technology keeps all the shades moving in synch throughout the day for an even quieter system and a streamlined look.
You might assume that something this high-tech lacks enough design options to complement your style. However, just one of our chosen brands, Lutron, carries nearly unlimited models, fabric selections and colors; you can even select from movie theater-style draperies, wooden blinds and blackout shades. As if that didn’t provide enough variety, Lutron also offers a “Customer’s Own Material” option that lets you bring in any fabric swatch and guarantees an exact match.
These automated window treatments may seem to be a frivolous luxury to some, built just for those who crave the convenience of cordless technology. While user-friendliness poses a viable perk, especially if you’re busy and have a lot of windows, we’ve found plenty of practical benefits.
For example, Energy.gov estimates that properly installed motorized shades can result in up to 20 percent less heat lost, adding some welcome warmth this season. During summer, they prevent homes from excessive heat by trapping approximately the same percentage of incoming heat.
We’ll admit it: not every motorized shade installation is a straightforward process. But with a professional integrator’s touch, every control, drapery track and design will look and feel seamless to the end user. Yes, that even includes the “impossible” windows like skylights, oddly shaped apertures and bay windows. No matter which window you’re covering, you’ll experience the same ease of use and one-touch control, as your shades will operate quietly and will flawlessly integrate with your other devices.
