As temperatures soar during the summer months in the Southwest, it can be difficult for homeowners to stay protected from the sun.

While some may turn to air conditioning or move indoors, there is an alternative that provides a great way to beat the heat: Installing a Sunesta retractable awning on your home!

Seeking Shelter From Summer

The Southwest is known for its scorching summer temperatures that can make it unbearable to be outdoors for prolonged periods of time. Daytime temperatures can often reach well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, with some areas experiencing heat waves that can last for several days in a row.

“Warm temperatures are one of the region’s defining characteristics,” as explained by the University of Arizona. “Regional temperatures run higher compared to northern [climates] because the subtropics receive more direct sunlight, and there is little water available to temper its power.”

When the temperatures continue to climb, it is important to take precautions to prevent heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

This includes…

  • Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids
  • Wearing loose, lightweight clothing
  • Seeking shade whenever possible
  • And more

Awning Aid Is On the Way

One of the most effective ways that homeowners can beat the summer heat is by installing a Sunesta retractable awning on their homes.

These awnings are capable of keeping individuals up to 20 degrees cooler by providing them with revolutionary shade. Additionally, awnings can help to protect furniture and outdoor property from fading in color due to strong, prolonged sun exposure.

Another benefit of installing an awning is that it can help to reduce energy costs associated with cooling a home. Because the sun’s rays are blocked from entering a home, the need for air conditioning is reduced, which can lead to significant energy savings over time.

In fact, the Advanced Textiles Association (ATA) has reported that awnings can reduce energy costs associated with air conditioning by up to 25 percent.
