Guam - Looking to save money on your power bill and reduce the temperature of your home? If so, Paradise Awnings offers a solution for you. 

Many people on Guam with beautiful homes and priceless views find themselves having to close their curtains and sometimes even their typhoon shutters to keep their homes cool.  With a Paradise Awning product, one no longer has to make that sacrifice.

Benson Au-Yeung is the president of Benz Signs & Supplies, and told KUAM News, "What it does it basically stop the heat from coming into the windows before it hits the windows, so even if you have tinting or you have curtains on the windows but if you feel the windows, the hot sun still heats up inside.  But with the retractable awning it reduces the heat.

According to the American Society of Heat and Air Conditioning, it can save up to 25% of the air conditioning bill, as well as reducing the heat up to 77%.

Paradise Awnings come standard ranging from 12-24 feet and are mounted above any windows or doorways providing a shady shelter from the harmful UV rays that cause skin cancer and any unwanted weather.  But Benz Signs & Supplies also builds custom awnings to any size a customer may require.

"We carry different fabric material, we carry Tarply material.  For the 100% waterproof material, we also carry Sunbrella material, which is a 10-year limited warranty which prevents from mildew buildup as well as blocking the UV-protection for skin cancer," said Au-Yeung.

And to answer the question that may be on your mind - how do these stand up to a typhoon? The simple answer is that the frame of the awnings have about 3-6 screws depending on the dimensions that can be easily be removed by two people if need be.

Not only do the awnings reduce heat in your home, save you money, and protect you and your children from potentially damaging UV rays the awnings can also protect your hardwood floors, and expensive furniture and upholstery as the prolonged exposure to sun light fades these costly items in your home.

KUAM News asked Au-Yeung what he likes most about these awnings, to which he replied, "The good thing about the retractable awning is a lot of people don't want to set up an awning or they want to be able to close it whenever they want to so they can keep the view so with our retractable awnings its motorized and its remote control and whenever you want to its a click of a button and you can open and close the awning anytime you want."

So if you are looking to reduce the cost of your air conditioning bill and your overall energy consumption head over to Benz Signs & Supplies in Tamuning and check out these environmentally friendly retractable awnings for your home or office.
