Functional Shade Solutions for Homeowners
The benefits of an awning go far beyond aesthetic appeal. It’s true that awnings can enhance the look of a residence, but a huge benefit is that awnings save energy and protect furniture, floors and carpets from fading.
Energy savings, weather protection, architectural aesthetics and an extended outdoor living space are all considerations for purchasing a Girard awning for your home.

Girard Awnings Keep You Cool
According to a study conducted by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA), awnings can reduce annual cooling energy by as much as 50% in hot climates, and as much as 25% in moderate climates, when compared to homes with completely un-shaded windows.
In a typical home, more energy is transferred through glass doors and windows than through any other construction element. Studies show that on a hot day, more energy comes through one square foot of glass than through an entire insulated wall. Solar radiation (infrared light) through glass is responsible for approximately 20% of the load on an air conditioner.
Girard shade solutions offer instant energy savings and can cut your home cooling costs by up to 25%, as well as reduce the interior heat of your home by up to 50%. In less than a month's time you’ll notice the energy-saving benefits by the reduction in your energy bill.
Girard awnings protect windows, doors and other areas of your home from the heat of the sun, keeping you cool and comfortable in any sunny location.
