In n a less than a month's time you’ll notice the energy-saving benefits by the reduction in your energy bill. In a typical home, more energy is transferred through glass doors and windows than through any other construction element. Studies show that on a hot day, more energy comes through one square foot of glass than through an entire insulated wall. Solar radiation (infrared light) through glass is responsible for approximately 20 percent of the load on an air conditioner. Protecting windows from the heat of the sun through the use of Girard Systems Awnings, is simply another way Girard Keeps You Cool!
According to the study conducted by Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA) awnings can reduce annual cooling energy by as much as 50 percent in hot climates, such as Texas, and as much as 25% in moderate climates, such as Washington, DC when compared to homes with completely un-shaded windows. The amount of cooling energy saved varies depending on the number of windows, type of glass in the windows, window orientation and the climate where the house is located.
