Cape Cod- Should I Remove Awnings?
We have three window awnings and one over the front steps. The original plan was to remove them and place decorative shutters.
One of my friends is concerned how much this will heat the house up in the summer. The house faces west. We live in an area in which it only gets hot for about 4 to 6 weeks in the summer and I have AC. Wouldn't the extra cost to cool the house be made up by the extra solar heat in the cold months?
What do you think? Thanks for any opinions.
