Energy Saving Study

According to the study, conducted by PAMA awnings can reduce annual cooling energy by as much as 50 percent in hot climates, such as Texas, and as much as 25% in moderate climates, such as Washington, DC, compared to homes with completely un-shaded windows. The amount of cooling energy saved varies depending on the number of windows, type of glass in the windows, window orientation and the climate the house is in.



“What some people don’t realize is that in most homes, more cooling energy is lost through glass doors and windows than any other part of the house,” said Michelle Sahlin, managing director of PAMA. “Awnings are an effective way to reduce heat gain and prevent cooling energy loss in households. This benefits the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the homeowner by saving them money on energy bills.”

Typical Steel Frame Construction:

We custom weld our frames using never-rust sturdy 1.3″ rounded galvanized steel pipe. We also weld a 3/4″ pipe along the bottom which is used to lace the awning onto the frame.
Customers can also have their residential awning frames made from 1″ square aluminum, which offers a more modern look. Ask your salesperson about the different frame types to find out which is right for you.


Our aluminum awnings are professionally installed on your windows and doors, shielding your windows from the direct rays of the sun, keeping your home cooler in summer and protecting it from rain, snow and adding extra life to your window frames. All of A Hoffman’s metal awnings are precision-fabricated with low-maintenance materials. They are a solid investment you will appreciate for many years and they come in a variety of colors and dimensions.


    • Awnings on your windows keep your home cooler
    • Awnings over your doors protect you and your visitors from the elements and keep your entryway dry
    • Aluminum awnings are extremely durable. No need to take down in the winter.
    • A properly sized awning can control the heat of the summer sun, yet let warm rays stream in during winter when the sun is positioned lower in the sky!
