Window Coverings That Reduce Home Cooling Cost

September 20, 2016
blog0cooling-costs

Whether you’ve been beating the heat with box fans or AC, you may feel like you’ve gotten the last laugh … until the electric bill comes — and then nobody’s laughing. It’s simple math: the hotter it gets, the more energy it takes to cool down, but by treating windows with energy efficient window coverings, such as Danmer’s Thermalite Shutters Insulating System, you can stay cool while slashing home energy bills by up to 35%. Here’s why:

  • Maximize R-Value. Thermalite Shutters are great for double pane windows, providing one of the highest R-Value shutter ratings on the market.
  • Less Heat Transfer. Using the Thermalite Shutters Insulating System in hot climates reduces the amount of heat transfer that enters into your home.
  • Restricts Air Exchange. Thermalite Shutters allow you to control the amount of airflow traveling between your window openings and the outside environment.
  • Lower Kilowatt Hours. Saving kilowatt hours means saving on your cooling bill, and Thermalite Shutters assists you in both.
  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency. Thermalite Shutters will insulate your home up three-times better than wood shutters.
  • Monthly Energy Savings. Energy efficient window coverings pay for themselves by keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Ready to keep cool while saving some cold hard cash? Call us at (800) 684-3434 for a FREE in-home consultation, featuring Danmer’s Thermalite Shutter Insulating System.

Child Safety is a Top priority

September 12, 2016
blog-kid-safe

We all know what it’s like when kids are being kids: they’re curious, imaginative, and full of more energy than we can remember having at that age. But as cherished as their rambunctiousness can be at that age, it can also be troublesome — or even dangerous — if it’s let loose in an unsafe environment.

Though they can seem harmless at first glance, even the most basic window coverings and dangling cords can pose a lethal threat to young children. That’s why Danmer fashions products specifically designed to keep your infants, children, and pets safe, and to help avoid often-overlooked pitfalls such as these ones.

With that in mind, Danmer designs and manufactures window coverings with a number of key safety features to keep your little ones out of harm’s way, including:

  • Retractable lift cords
  • Cord tensioners
  • Wand controls
  • Cordless & motorized operating systems
  • Custom Shutters (cordless by design)

Danmer takes your family’s needs very seriously. That’s why we strive for Elegance, Value, and Safety in every product: That’s the Danmer Difference. Contact us at (800) 684-3434 for a FREE in-home consultation, and to explore the safest, most stylish window coverings for your home.

Think All Shutters Are The Same?

August 8, 2016

shutters4Choosing the RIGHT shutters for your home can be a challenge — especially when they seem to all look kind of alike. Sure, at first glance, they can look similar to an untrained eye. But the truth is: If you select the wrong company to make your shutters, you could end up with headaches, delays and constant repair issues. Not all shutters are the same. Here what separates the best Shutters from the rest:

  • Quality shutters are constructed from quality materials. Be careful NOT to buy shutters that are made using glue, wood chips, and formaldehyde. This is very common but you wouldn’t know it unless you asked the Shutter manufacturer specifically. Danmer uses a solid, non-toxic polymer called Thermalite for a stronger and more reliable shutter.
  • Shutter hardware should be built to last. While other shutter companies use hollow and weak plastic clips as hardware on their products, Danmer installs premium metal Tilt Rod hardware for maximum durability.
  • Insist on a shutter that will function properly for the long haul. Only Danmer has the patented Duraglide Louver Tension System that’s so reliable, it’s guaranteed NEVER to need adjusting or tightening.

Without question, Danmer makes the finest custom shutters around. Not only are they guaranteed to never chip, warp, or discolor, they’re made and assembled right here in the USA!

3 SUMMER TRENDS IN INTERIOR DESIGN

August 1, 2016
_DSC7890 compressed

The “era of relaxation” isn’t going away anytime soon. American families have grown fond of living spaces that allow them to unplug and unwind from the hectic pace of life these days. But as we near the midpoint of 2016, cheerful and up-beat colors are still in vogue and a new flock of “trends” in interior design look a lot like recent tried and true standards for summer. Here are 3 of the most popular summer design trends so far:

  • Bright colors. Many homes are taking on furniture and decor featuring bright and cheery colors, mixed with soothing, blues and greens (especially in coastal areas). This tends to reinforce the ‘vibrance’ of summer and creates a beach-like ambiance in your home.
  • Outdoor comes in. You’re probably spending more time outdoors than indoors during the summer, but you can still bring the season’s best elements inside with you. There’s no stopping the current nature trend by decorating homes with lots of indoor plants and trees and the warm earth tones to complement them.
  • Window improvements. The right Window Coverings remain the best way to complement to any decor while you regulate the amount of light that gets in, and how much of your room’s decor they illuminate. With nearly limitless possibilities for colors, styles, and shapes, swapping out window treatments can transform an entire room or your entire house without breaking the bank.

Before taking on any major home improvement projects, it’s always good to research upcoming trends and home improvement solutions — and never hesitate to consult industry professionals with any questions you may have.

If your summer decor plan includes a window treatment upgrade, contact Danmer to find the solution that best fits your style and budget.

SOLAR POWER FOR YOUR HOME?

July 18, 2016
Shutters with Stained GlassAs temperatures rise this Summer, you might find it difficult to stay cool without breaking the bank on air conditioning costs. To counter these costs, many Southern California homeowners are installing energy-efficient solar panels to their homes.
 
Here’s why:
 
• Solar panels collect clean, pure energy from the sun and reduce the amount of harmful gas emissions created by fossil fuels — the leading cause of climate change.
 
• Using solar power helps to sustain the environment by offsetting the amount of carbon
emissions produced by drawing electricity from the grid.
 
• The reduced home energy bills that result from collecting and using Solar Energy will
put money right back in your pocket.
 
So not only is solar power an eco-friendly energy source that can help sustain the planet, but you can save quite a bit of money to offset the cost of the solar installation. Even if solar panels aren’t practical for your particular home or if they’re not in the budget, there are still plenty of other eco-friendly alternatives that can help you save on your energy bills.
For example, Danmer offers the Energy Efficient Thermalite™ Shutters Insulating System, which is designed to reduce energy consumption by cutting heat loss or gain through your windows, and therefore lowering your home energy bills by up to 35%. Save energy, save cash!
 
Ready to ‘go green’? Call us at (800) 684-3434 to learn more about Danmer’s Thermalite™ Insulating System, or to set up your free in-home consultation.

More Tips for the Smart Shutter Shopper

May 15, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-05-19 at 10.42.04 AMAs a shopper, here are a few questions that most shutter companies would prefer you didn’t ask (because you won’t like the answer they give you):

  • Are these shutters really custom made for me? Not all companies hand-craft their product to your specifications.  Many companies use off-the shelf cookie-cutter shutter panels that are then fit to your openings. Be wary of this approach.
  • Should I choose wood or other materials for my Shutters? Many companies don’t even have such options available. Only patented Thermalite Shutters from Danmer, unlike wood shutters, will NEVER peel, crack, warp, burn, or discolor.
  • How fast can I get my shutters? Most companies import their parts and shutter materials from overseas. This can take 8-12 weeks for your shutters to arrive and assemble.  But Danmer manufactures all of our shutters right here in the USA, which gives you the fastest turnaround time in the industry.
  • Transferrable warranty? Insist on a warranty that’s actually transferable to the NEXT homeowner.  These warranties are desirable because they can increase the resale value of your home.  Trust in the company that gives you a copy in advance.

4 favorite kitchen trends of 2016

May 2, 2016
applause_ultraglide_kitchen_2

Kitchen

We’re fast approaching the mid-point of 2016, so it’s interesting to see which home trends are thriving in the zeitgeist. Here are five of the hottest trends likely to become kitchen staples for years to come:

– Ying, yang, and neutral tones  Black, white, earthy grays and coffee-shaded browns are being used regularly to enhance kitchen spaces and create a more relaxing atmosphere.

– 21st Century accessibility.  As with many rooms in the home, the kitchen is evolving to meet our technological needs.  For example, charging stations and hand-free phone and tablet mounts are helping to make recipes and cooking videos more easily accessible.

– Functionality.  Much like the need for technological accessibility, kitchens are also evolving to accommodate our other needs. The addition of small nooks and ports for refuse, wine refrigerators, and coffee making stations are popping up all over the place.

– Luxury-rugged.  As with cabinetry, many kitchens are adopting rougher-looking materials, sans ornamentation, for a sleek, smooth look.  Hardwood floors and black slate tiles are a great example of this, and fit well with many custom decors.

Whether undertaking a full kitchen renovation, or just freshening one up, don’t forget to include your window treatments in your epic home transformation.  Did you know that Damner specifically color matches custom shutters to fit your home decor perfectly?  Visit us online at www.danmer.com, or call us at (800) 684-3434 to set up your free in-home consultation.

April 1, 2016

vertiglideWhen it comes to your kids, safety is all-important. So did you know that selecting the wrong window coverings can be lethal to infants and young children? Blinds and shades with cords have been responsible for over 500 child strangulations in the last decade alone. Here are a few critical things to know:

  1. Over five million window coverings have been recalled in recent years. Make sure to do your homework before ordering ANY window coverings in your home where children are present.
