We all know that the Texas sun makes things hot for a good part of the year. Despite our share of cold fronts from the North in the winter, soon enough we’ll be settling into the six-month summer season. That means that the sun will be warming your house and your now dormant air conditioning will be springing into action.
In the warm (or should we call it hot) season, it’s likely that you have to use your window treatments to block out some of the sun. UV rays can fade furniture, carpets, and other interior furnishings. The heat can make your thermostat drive your air conditioning to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. In the summer, some Texas homes with large windows are actually somewhat dark inside, because people are drawing window shades, blinds, and shutters closed to keep out the heat.
That darkness might lead to using artificial lighting more even though there's a blazing sun outside. Does that seem paradoxical? It is, but there's a better way. It involves home lighting control and motorized shading, a dynamic duo of smart technologies that will keep your Park Cities home comfortable, well-lit, and efficient no matter what the season.
