Good News-Bad News about Sunlight

April 11, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-05-19 at 11.07.30 AMWinter is behind us (in most of the country, anyway). Now’s the season of fun and sun from Spring through Summer!  There should be plenty of sunlight outdoors, but did you know that the sun’s rays can be healthy and useful to us indoors, as well?

Of course, letting sunlight into your home will keep it well lit – naturally – while cutting down on lightbulb usage. This will reduce your energy bill, a good thing.  But without the proper window coverings, it can be difficult to manage the amount of light without damaging furnishings, flooring and even that treasured art pieces on your walls. Not good! Fortunately, there are window coverings specifically designed for both energy efficiency and home interior protection. These solutions come in a number of styles to fit your own personal décor and your budget.

Danmer’s Thermalite Shutter Insulating System, for example, can help save energy twofold: First, custom Thermalite shutters cut heat loss or gain through your windows, providing as much as 3 times the insulation of typical wood shutters.  And second, Danmer shutters allow you to control the amount of sunlight that enters your home – which can reduce home energy bills by up to 35%.

Regulating sunlight can help create the ambiance you seek, while keeping those light switches in the off position. But let’s not forget the aesthetic as well as the practical: Thermalite shutters are elegant, easy to maintain, and look great in any room!  Visit us at www.danmer.com or call us at (800) 684-3434 to set up your free in-home consultation.

Types of Eco-Friendly Window Treatments

September 20, 2013

Everyone is going green these days. Whether you’re trying to keep up with the latest trends or you have a deep concern for the environment and our responsibility to protect it, buying eco-friendly products is something everyone seems to be doing. You may think about it at the grocery store or when you buy a new car, but what about your window treatments? Can blinds, shades and shutters be eco-friendly? Absolutely!

If you’re researching eco-friendly window treatments, look for the following characteristics:

  • Recycled materials used for the window treatments and in the manufacturing process
  • Sustainable materials
  • Energy efficiency
  • Maximum insulation

Thermalite™ Shutters

Thermalite shutters from Danmer may be your best bet when you’re looking for eco-friendly window treatments. They are made from a synthetic material that looks and feels like wood without using precious natural resources. This material is 100% non-toxic, flame retardant and water resistant, making it not only Eco-friendly but also durable and long-lasting.

Thermalite shutters help the environment by being more energy efficient as well. In fact, they insulate 3 times more than wood which will help drive down your heating and cooling costs.

Wood Shutters

If you truly prefer the look of real wood shutters, don’t worry. You can find eco-friendly wood shutters as well made from Premier Hardwood that is sustainably harvested and environmentally certified. The areas this wood is harvested from are protected against over farming which can be very damaging to the environment and future tree growth.

Roller Shades

You can also find eco-friendly roller shades. Look for materials that are PVC-free and recyclable. Danmer carries SheerWeave fabrics that are eco-friendly but also offer superior light filtration and glare control. Not only do these roller shades look great in any room, they also help to conserve energy and preserve the temperature in the home.

It is easy to find effective, eco-friendly window treatments for your home. Just do a little research into the materials and workmanship before you buy. If you have any questions, contact a design specialist at Danmer today.
