We’ve already mentioned that motorized blinds can boost energy efficiency, but how? Here are some ways they can help—keep in mind you can begin to reap these benefits from the moment you have them installed.

Automatic shades and blinds provide better insulation because they prevent heat gain and loss via your windows, reducing the need for your HVAC system to work overtime. This perk has a direct effect on your energy bill.

Natural Light Control

The National Audio Video team can help you program your shades to open and close at specific times during the day, regulating the amount of light that comes through. This schedule will reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day and give you the privacy you want as the sun goes down.
