Trick or Treat: Is Your Home Safe for Halloween

October 24, 2016
monday_october-31_nrv2

Halloween is around the corner, so it’s likely that you and your family are planning a fun-filled season full of tricks and treats.  Fun costumes, scary movies, haunted attractions, and other forms of spooky entertainment make for festive frights that are usually harmless.

But beware, as accidents do happen. The best way to avoid them is to ensure that precautions are taken to ensure a happy Halloween for all.  Here are a few helpful tips promote family safety, both in and out of your home:

  • When taking the kids on a trick-or-treat run, make sure they are wearing costumes with light colors, glow sticks, and/or reflective elements for maximum visibility to drivers.
  • If the kids are trick-or-treating without adult supervision, make sure they travel in a group, and only visit houses in familiar neighborhoods.
  • When driving, remain alert and drive slowly in residential areas where young pedestrians may be present.
  • If you’re hosting a Halloween party, be sure to inspect your home for possible dangers. Did you know that over 500 children have suffered strangulations due to unsafe blinds and shade cords over the past few decades in the U.S. alone?  Think about retrofitting your shades or blinds with cordless operations, retractable lift cords, cord tensioners, or wand controls.

Ready to make your window coverings child safe?  Call Danmer at (800) 684-3434 to learn more about window coverings with child-safe features, and from the Danmer family to yours, have a safe and happy Halloween!

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.

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.
