Awnings are a great option for warmer months and in the Summer, because they reduce heat gain by 77 percent. Awnings also are great for preventing the sun’s rays from hitting doors and windows, which leads to heat gain indoors. This outdoor shading system also helps air conditioners run more efficiently, saving your money on your utility bill.
