Imagine a home that runs more efficiently and safely with window treatments you can power with the touch of a button or the sound of your voice. Motorized window treatments are becoming more popular as homeowners realize their numerous benefits. Equipping your home with motorized window coverings comes with a lot of options, so you want to ensure you’re getting the highest quality systems available. At Blind and Shutter Guys, we carry motorization options from Hunter Douglas, Norman®, and Alta Window Fashions, and we can help you select the ideal system for your home.

Benefits of Window Treatment Motorization

No one likes to spend their hard-earned money on products that offer no benefits to their home or lifestyle. Fortunately, motorized window coverings have several benefits to offer:

  • Safety: Young children and pets can quickly become tangled up in dangling cords from blinds and shades. Even continuous-length loop cords are not 100% safe. Switching to power blinds eliminates the hazard and provides a safer alternative for your family.
  • Security: When you’re away from home, empty-looking residences become a more tempting target for criminals. Whether you’ll be gone for the weekend or a couple of weeks, you want it to appear as though someone is in your home. You can set schedules for automated shades to open and close at various times throughout the day, deterring those who may be scoping out homes in the area.
  • Accessibility: Large, tall windows and skylights are attractive features that flood your home with light, but operating their window coverings can be challenging. If you have windows behind large pieces of furniture or family members with limited mobility, automatic shades are an accessible option for everyone.
  • Energy Efficiency: Over 30% of your heating and cooling costs result from your home’s windows. An easy way to reduce that bill and your energy usage is by using your window treatments to block the sun in the summer when the temperature is high or to use the sunlight to warm your home in cool weather. With power blinds and automated shades, you can schedule your window blinds to open and close at specific times of day to increase your home’s energy efficiency.
  • Increased Home Value: Investing in window treatment motorization will increase the value of your home. This will be helpful if you have plans to sell or want to take out a home equity loan in the future.
