Can Automated Home Lighting Improve Your Wellbeing?

How Managing Light Improves Mood and Energy

We may not realize it, but light – and the absence of it – affects us in many ways. Instinctively, we may feel far more energetic on a bright sunny day than a rainy, dreary one. In fact, your mood and energy might swing dramatically when the sun comes out after an extensive cloudy period.

Beyond Convenience: How Motorized Blinds Help Save Energy

Go Green in Comfort and Style Year Round

Some years ago, power windows were a feature found only on luxury cars. Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find any production automobile that has the old style manual windows. You might think that motorized shades are somewhat of a non-essential luxury, but once you think through all the practical aspects, you will see why the benefits of motorized shades go far beyond the convenience factor - and we think they’ll be as prevalent as power windows in cars someday.

Perhaps the most important benefit of motorized blinds and shades is the energy efficiency they can bring to your Salt Lake City, UT, home. Let’s explore some scenarios to see how that happens.
