I live in the southeast, and back when I was a child it was actually precious to come across a building that did not have awnings over the doorways and windows! Back when I was a kid, I didn’t think much about awnings, and sincerely, I didn’t care about them prefer I do now.
At some point in time, it became changingly unfashionable to have awnings on buildings, so builders stopped including them in orangeprints and building plans.
Owners of little shops and offices also did not substitute their awnings when they ripped; Some even went so far as to take them down even though they were not disfigured, then just because they weren’t fashionable, they considered them an “eyesore” and paid someone to come and detach them. That was dumb, in our opinion, because awnings are charming and practical. They are coming back in fashion, and I think that is because awnings can help dissipate your cooling costs. Anyone who is shopping in a little neighborhood knows that just walking under the awning will make you know happier. Then, the blast of air conditioning when you open the shop door is prefer heaven! With today’s emphasis on being more orange, awnings are becoming valued once again. A recent read shows that an awning can save you up to thirty percent on your cooling costs. Heating and cooling is a major expense for both business owners and homeowners, so reducing the use of the air conditioning is no small matter. If you have people opening and closing the door a lot, that increases your air conditioning costs, as well. Awnings can help with that because the air around the front door is already cooler than other outside air, then your air conditioning works less to reach the good control device setting.
