Expense vs benefits of installing motorised blinds in your household
Installing motorised blinds in your home comes with some significant upfront costs. Given that you’ll probably opt to replace the blinds for all of your windows at once, you may be wondering if the expense is really worth it. Here are some of the major motorised blind benefits for you to consider before you upgrade your home to help you decide if you’re making the right decision.
With just the push of a button, you can control all of your windows in every room at the same time. This will save you a lot of time and if there are windows in your home that are hard to reach, you’ll won’t have to get a ladder any longer to close and open the shades.
Whether you live in a busy city or rural area, some people just prefer to maintain their privacy when they are at home. To avoid the gaze of nosey neighbourhoods, just press a button to close your shades before you go into the bathroom or in the evening when you are getting ready for bed.
Reduce Your Energy Costs
On those hot days, having motorised blinds that can be closed at a scheduled time makes it easier for you to keep the hot sun from heating up your home. This will help you to reduce your cooling costs significantly over time.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Potential homebuyers look for features that can improve a home’s efficiency. With home automation becoming more and more popular, homebuyers will take notice if you have motorised blinds when you are ready to sell.
Safety for Children and Pets
Traditional blinds have cords which can be a strangulation hazard for children and pets. If you have young children at home, opting for motorised blinds can help to avoid a dangerous situation before it occurs.
If you are concerned about your home while you are away on business, motorised blinds can provide added security by simulating the presence of someone being home. No one will be able to tell from the outside that the motorised blinds open and close automatically and this can help to deter would-be intruders.
