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.

4 Tips for July during National Picnic Month

June 28, 2016

  • Fashionalbly festive foods.  Add a decorative twist, like red and blue berries to cakes or presenting watermelon wedges on a stick to reinforce the colorful red-white-blue theme of the 4th.
  • Declaration of entertainment.  What’s the best way to pass time between eating and fireworks?  Party games, of course!  There are tons of kid-friendly 4th of July activities available — from scavenger hunts to epic water balloon battles — to keep the family entertained until the main event.
  • Location, Location, Location.  Whether you’re watching this year’s free displays from your backyard, or you’re enjoying the brilliant spectacles in a park or other public environment, two things are certain: safety is important, and a good view is crucial!  Always research both aspects before choosing a spot for your picnic.

OK, so if you’re staying at home with your family or having some friends over, you can still often see lots of festivities and fireworks right out your windows.  Danmer’s custom shutters and window coverings, proudly made in assembled in the USA, are designed to frame your windows with style and elegance so that you can get a full view of the action when desired, and shut it out when you’re finished for the night (and any other night, for that matter).

Summer at last!

June 21, 2016

_DSC8068 compressedWe can officially kiss spring goodbye. Say hello to summer! The extra sunlight and warmth is a welcomed resource for those who plan to spend these summer days outdoors. Hiking, biking, going to the beach (or amusement park), or many other outside activities come to mind. But if you’re spending several hours at a time indoors, those extra hours of sunlight may actually become more of a nuisance. The more direct sun our homes and offices get, the hotter these spaces become. Let’s face it: a room that’s made uncomfortably hot from the sunlight is not ideal for any activity.

Fortunately, there are ways to regulate unwanted sunlight. Custom Shutters, such as Danmer’s Thermalite Shutter Insulating System, can solve this problem two-fold. First, custom designed and professionally installed shutters can help you regulate sunlight, giving you exactly the amount that you and your family desire. Second, the shutters’ insulating properties will keep the heat out and the cool air in, which in-turn, will lower your energy bills by up to 35%!

Call Danmer 24/7 at (800) 684-3434 to learn more about our Thermalite Shutter Insulating System.

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 2.22.15 PMIf you have a small child at home, safety in every room is a priority.  Young children have a very inquisitive nature so one thing you can do to insure a safe environment for the little ones is to have window treatments that won’t cause them any harm.  Check out this YouTube video at Parents For Window Blind Safety for some tips when child-proofing your windows with small children in your home. Here are a few things to know:

  • Stay away from bulky blinds that can fall easily and get entangled with the young ones
  • Make sure your shutters and blinds aren’t coated in any harmful dyes, paints or stains
  • There are plenty of cordless alternatives or motorized systems for window treatments that can eliminate the risk of being exposed to dangerous cords

Danmer has a wide variety of safe, child-proof options for the window treatments within your home. Our goal is to reduce the risk of child endangerment with any window covering products.  With child safety in mind, we offer plenty of nonhazardous ways to enhance your home to its fullest potential.

How to Get up to $500 Federal Tax Credit

June 2, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-06-02 at 1.00.37 PMDid you know that you could get up to $500 in Federal Tax Credit just for installing selected window coverings into your home this year? The trick is to select the products that qualify for this Tax Credit and then have them installed before the end of the calendar year (in other words, before December 31, 2016). The good news is that Danmer offers a Custom Shutters option and a Hunter Douglas Shade option that both qualify for this tax credit.

Here’s the back-story: Back in 2009, President Obama signed The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This “stimulus bill” included a federal tax credit on selected energy efficient products for the home purchased during 2009 and 2010. Although the original law has expired, The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 reinstated the federal tax credit for calendar year 2016. The home must be your principal residence.

Danmer’s patented Thermalite Shutter Insulating System qualifies for this program, as these shutters are manufactured to the criteria established as an “Eligible Building Envelope Component” and classified as an “insulation material or system” as defined in Section 4.01 of IRS Notice 2009-53. Thermalite Shutters are distributed exclusively by Danmer. CLICK HERE to learn more about Thermalite and HERE for the Hunter Douglas Shades that qualify for the Tax Credit. You can also review the Manufacturer’s Certification Statement and the simple FAQ page about the tax credit program here at

If you add this tax credit to the ‘Buy One and then Get One” offer currently on the Danmer site, there may never be a better time to add elegance to your home at a great price. Call us at (888) 420-9892 to schedule your in-home design quote.

Memorial Day vs. Veterans Day

May 30, 2016

imgresDo you get Memorial Day confused with Veterans Day? The truth is, it happens more often than you think. Here’s a handy cheat sheet to help you differentiate between the two (and be a hit at your Memorial Day BBQ):

Memorial Day:

  • Began as “Decoration Day” (originally celebrated on May 30th) as a day to honor those who were killed in any past war by ‘decorating’ their graves with flowers.
  • Celebrated the last Monday in May.

Veterans Day:

  • Rooted to “Armistice Day,” a day set aside to celebrate the end of World War I in particular.
  • The honor was expanded in 1954 to include all Veterans, and thus renamed Veterans Day to reflect the change.
  • Observed on November 11th.

As we attend gatherings with friends and family this weekend, let us not forget the sacrifices that were made for our freedoms.

Danmer honors the brave men and women of the U.S. Military.  We wish you a safe and happy Memorial Day, from our family to yours.

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.
