The whole idea of retirement can essentially be summed up in one statement: “Take it easy.”

When you retire and move Southwest, you want to take advantage of the warmth, the scenery, and the opportunity to finally commit your time and energy to the things you want to do. So why bother to lose time over sun protection?

Don’t get us wrong — while adequate sun protection is certainly a necessity, there’s no reason you can’t also find ways to make that task easier, as well.

And that’s why we’re here to offer the idea of investing in a motorized awning.

Sun and the Southwest

As the Southwest is, of course, closer to the equator than its northern counterparts, it is subject to a higher number of hot, dry days, all attributed to its consistent sunshine.

In fact, “every part of the Southwest experienced higher average temperatures between 2000 and 2015 than the long-term average,” according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In other words, residents of this region are more susceptible to the damaging effects of constant sun exposure and heat.

And retirees, in particular, are apt to spend plenty of their time enjoying outdoor activities, meaning they are especially susceptible to such sun-related hazards.

Thus, a motorized awning is an easy and efficient way to provide long-term shade at will, offering protection for both their health and their property.

An Awning’s Strength Is Your Strength

Did you know that, as we grow older, our skeletal muscles begin to degrade in a process called sarcopenia?

“Sarcopenia is one of the four main reasons for loss of muscle mass,” studies show. “On average, it is estimated that 5–13% of elderly people aged 60–70 years are affected by sarcopenia. The numbers increase to 11–50% for those aged 80 or above.”

In other words, everyone is subject to the loss of muscle mass as they age, making certain physical activities more strenuous than they might otherwise be earlier in life.

In this regard, retirees in the Southwestern region of the United States will also benefit from a motorized awning in that they can expand and retract it at the leisurely push of a button, thereby mitigating the necessity for physical exertion or potential injury as with crank awnings.
