Benefits of Motorized Blinds

With rising living costs, energy efficiency has become a priority for most Sacramento homeowners. If you’re building or remodeling your home, you may be wondering how you could save on energy bills. Motorized blinds have become a popular and convenient way for homeowners to increase energy efficiency. Upgrading to motorized blinds help monitor the solar gain and heat loss that naturally occurs during the day. Smart home technology adjusts your blinds based on temperature and sunlight, improving energy efficiency in your home. To help determine if motorized blinds are for you, read the following article that explains the benefits of motorized blinds.


Practical, Yet Convenient

When you hire us for our smart home installation in Sacramento, we’ll show you how the blinds can be activated with just a press of a button. You can access this from the remote control or app on your smartphone. One of the best features about motorized blinds is the ability to set a schedule for them to open and close. You’ll never have to manually open or close all your blinds ever again! 


Saving Electricity

Connecting motorized blinds to a smart home hub will help reduce the amount of energy your HVAC system uses. Depending on the season, your blinds will adjust to the temperature in the home. Furthermore, if you’re trying to cool your home in the Sacramento heat, the blinds will close, and vice versa for winter. Motorized blinds allow you to get the most out of your home. 


Smart Lighting

Smart blinds will help increase the amount of daylight in your home. When paired with smart lighting, energy costs are even lower. Opening the blinds, for example, will cause smart lighting to shut down, and vice versa.


Add R-Value Add

Motorized blinds will add a major insulation benefit to your windows even without smarts. An R value of 4.3 is given by the conventional roller and honeycomb blinds. You can also get motorized drapes that will add an insulating layer to your windows. (A standard double glazed window has a R value of 2.0.)



Security is a big concern for many Sacramento homeowners, and motorized blinds add another element of security. Thanks to the scheduled feature, smart blinds can scare off potential burglars. This feature tricks them into thinking someone is home when there really isn’t. Our friends at Headwaters Construction, a construction company that offers retail renovation in Sacramento, points out that there’s also way more privacy when you install motorized blinds in your home or business.
