A patio cover does not only serve to protect your patio. Maximize its function by adding patio cover accessories that will give you more comfort and safety when you use your patio. Here are 3 patio cover accessories you may want to install on your patio cover.
Maximize the space occupied by your patio cover by installing solar panels on top of it. Not only will you make your outdoor space more comfortable to stay in, you’ll also be able to harness the sunlight you’re blocking and turn it into clean energy for your home. For maximum energy harnessed, it’s best if your patio cover is facing the southern side. It is also advised to have a sloped patio cover to get as much sunlight as possible throughout the whole day.
Wind is great for air circulation but too much can be annoying. Keep your outdoors protected with outdoor curtains or tarpaulin which are weather- and waterproofed with UV protection. A wind screen will also provide privacy and make your outdoor area safer.
There is just as many hot summer days as there are windy days. A ceiling fan will be helpful in circulating and refreshing the air in your patio. When the sun gets too bright, and the atmosphere too dry, a ceiling fan can easily cool down the hot air passing through your patio. If you’re firing up your BBQ grill, wave away the aromatic smell of your grilled meat away from your patio.
