DID YOU KNOW THAT BUILDINGS CONSUME 40% OF ALL ENERGY, PRIMARILY IN LIGHTING, HEATING AND COOLING?
Yet 1/3rd of this energy is wasted or leaked and 50% of this energy lost is lost through its window – a $35 billion dollar problem.
One of the most effective and simplest ways to reduce this energy loss is to install automated “Smart Shades”, which can reduce lighting energy by 74% and cooling by 24%!
Not only do Smart Shades save energy, but they provide greater comfort and convenience, particularly for the aging population, seniors, and the disabled – providing them with a solution to help them lift heavy shades and live independently.
The number of adults aged 85 and older, the group most often needing help with basic personal care, will nearly quadruple between 2000 and 2040. Nurses and caregivers report significant time spent on simply raising and lowering their window shades.
