The Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA) estimates awnings can save as much as $200 a year by reducing the time the air conditioner runs. The association says the energy performance of an awning is usually affected by its style, fabric color and orientation. Realtors say that awnings make their job easier because awnings are "like jewelry on a house." that adds value in four ways:

An undressed window on the inside of your house cries out for draperies, blinds or shades. Dressing exterior windows is just as important because unadorned windows can make your home appear cold and unwelcoming. Awnings add curb appeal to your house in the same way that window dressings on the inside of your home add warmth and decorative value. When a visitor approaches your home, the awnings communicate that you care enough about your house to add curb appeal and aesthetic value.

You spend more money to keep your house cool in the summer months when the sun beats down on your windows all day. Awnings add shade and block the sun, reducing heat build up. When your home is cooler, your air conditioner won't have to work as hard or run as often. You save money while you live there and you pass these savings onto the next owner, which adds value to the sale of your home.

Add a patio awning to your house to make your outdoor space more comfortable. When you can sit outside in the shade, instead of in the blazing hot sun, it will seem as if you added outdoor living space to your home. You and your guests will enjoy being outside and won't have to constantly raise, lower and adjust a patio umbrella. This is a nice convenience for you and a value you pass onto a home buyer.

Awnings are optional accessories that show you are a homeowner who cares about your property. Installing awnings indicates to potential buyers that you probably maintain other aspects of your home, such as the heating and air conditioning systems and the plumbing. Buyers are more likely to purchase a house that has been maintained than a rundown house.
