How You Can Cut Cooling Costs This Summer

Make Your Home More Energy Efficient in the Summer Months

Worried about saving on cooling costs in the summer months? Everyone is. While the solution for many to keep air conditioning running all day, that may not be the most energy-efficient method. Below are some ways to keep your home cool all while saving on energy costs.

Use a Ceiling Fan

During certain times of the day, a humble ceiling fan would do the job if the heat isn’t too intense. It’s the simplest solution in making your living space cooler. Just make sure that you turn it off whenever it’s not in use. A ceiling fan will also help distribute air cooled by an air conditioner efficiently if you’re already using an air conditioner.

Find the Perfect Setting for Your AC

If you use your air conditioning unit frequently, are you sure your settings are optimal? Upgrading your thermostat to a smart thermostat like Nest, will help put your energy usage into stats that will help you run your home.

Replace Your HVAC Filters

To keep your HVAC running smoothly, filters need to be cleaned out or replaced. Dirty filters mean that your system will need to work harder to keep your home cool. If you think your filters have become too dirty or unusable, then consider replacing them. Not only will replacing them help your HVAC run more efficiently but it will also help prevent respiratory problems.

Upgrade Your Windows

A home with old windows lets heat in more easily. Upgrading your windows with new technology which will keep your home cooler in the summer, and warmer in the winter. Paired with window sun screens, you will have a cooler and more energy-efficient home in the long run.

Keeping Kids Safe While Poolside

Take Note of These Tips to Minimize the Risks Involved

It’s a great idea to think ahead of the ways to keep cool during the summer, especially when the heat of the Arizona sun raises temperatures into triple digits. The pool is definitely a great way to have fun while keeping yourself cool but it can also be risky, especially for small children. So, how do you keep kids safe at the poolside?

Supervise Children at All Times

This is perhaps the most important measure you can do when kids are poolside. You should give kids full attention, because even the slightest distraction could spell disaster. Leaving kids unsupervised is never advised, as drowning can happen in an instant.

Teach Children basic Safety & Swimming Tips

Enrolling kids in swimming lessons or teaching them yourself is important in keeping them safe, teaching them basics and what to do when they’re in trouble. Take note of what they have the capacity to understand, and lay out the dangers in simple, but serious, terms.

Build a Pool Safety Fence

Fences can look unattractive but they are so valuable in protecting kids. When it comes to Arizona laws on fencing, both below-ground and above-ground pools must be completely enclosed by a wall with no openings through which kids could squeeze in. Fences don’t even have to be unattractive: some fences are actually transparent, giving you a clear view of the pool, all while keeping your kids protected from the dangers of being unsupervised at the poolside.

Have Emergency Safety Items Within Reach

A phone, first aid kit, and floatation devices definitely help in keeping the danger low while at poolside. It’s best to prepare these items before even setting out to the pool in case something goes awry. It’s also important that you know how to use them. Don’t be too complacent!

Sun Protection

Living in Arizona, means protecting yourself and your family from the dangers of prolonged sun exposure.

  • Sunscreen  Be sure to have kids apply sunscreen. The sun will get intense during the summer months. This means that they run the risk of getting sunburned which can be extremely uncomfortable. Sunscreen that is at least SPF 50 is best for protecting kids from the rays of the sun.

When keeping kids supervised, it’s always a good idea to keep yourself close. That could mean exposing yourself to the heat of the Arizona sun for hours on end.

  • Awnings  Perfect for poolside shade, providing comfort against the sun’s heat, have awnings installed. You can get retractable awnings that you can simply roll back whenever you don’t need them. Awnings can definitely give you that much-needed shade.

Staying Cool Poolside This Summer

Don’t Let the Hot Arizona Summer Sun Get to You. 

The sweltering heat of the Arizona summer can definitely take a toll on you, especially if you’re staying home more. Here are some tips to help keep yourself cool at home during the hot summer months.

Prepare Cold Snacks

You can easily make cold snacks yourself.  You can cut fruit and freeze them, make popsicles, or maybe prepare some ice cream.

You can even shave some ice and add in some flavoring to create snow cones for everyone to enjoy.

Install a Misting System

You can keep temperatures at a lower level by adding mist to the cooling process. Having a misting system installed on your home, which works best in low-humidity environments like Arizona, can cool the surroundings by about 25 degrees. A misting system uses little energy, so you won’t have to worry about surges in energy bills.

Hydrate Regularly

It’s important to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day since the heat drains your body of moisture and the ability to cool itself through sweating.

After a long hot day, nothing is better than being able to have a glass of cold water but it’s important that you keep at it with the habit.

Staying Home: Tips to Make a Comfortable and Energy-Efficient Home

The COVID-19 pandemic brought fear and uncertainty. Stay-at-home orders and recommended quarantining had everyone isolated in their homes. Even as the economy works through strategies to reopen, many people are still choosing to limit their time out in public on the side of caution. 

Now is the perfect time to address improvements that need to be made to your home, as you will most likely be spending more time there, or  in case another wave of the novel coronavirus ensues. Make your home your own personal oasis from the craziness of the world.

Comfort in Arizona’s Summer Heat

The temperatures are already reaching triple digits, and the heat will continue into September. Make sure to schedule any repairs to your air conditioner, pool, misting system, or grill. Pool season is in full swing, does your yard have adequate shade to protect you and your family from harmful UV rays and overheating?  

Awnings - Awnings are a great solution for poolside shade, allowing you to expand your space when the heat gets a little too intense. You can even have awnings installed that can shade the pool. What’s more convenient is that they can be retractable, so you can simply keep them tucked when you don’t need them. Learn More About Awnings

Installing sensors will definitely help in regulating your home’s temperature.

 

 

Sun Sensors - These sensors will detect sun exposure and will automatically drop your patio shades or extend your awnings.

Wind/Movement Sensors - When winds get a little too strong, especially during monsoon season, these sensors will retract your motorized awnings and patio shades.

Window Sun Screens

Awnings for Expanding Entertainment Space

You may have been asking yourself: How can I provide more shaded space for visitors to take cover from the Arizona Sun? The answer is Awnings.

Additional Usable Space

Awnings are perfect for homes that do not have an attached patio structure. If the sun is shining directly on your guests on the deck area, an awning can give them the shade they need. If you do have a patio, you can expand your shaded area significantly by installing awnings to patio openings.

Stationary or Retractable Awnings?

You have two types of awnings to choose from, depending on your preference. Retractable Awnings allow you to hide it away when you don’t need it. Lounge under the sun for the perfect tan, or catch a glimpse of the night sky during evenings. Stationary awnings cannot retract, but instead serve as a permanent source of shade and cover from the elements.

Awning Accessories

There are a number of accessories you can add to your motorized retractable awnings to provide a more efficient experience. Wind sensors ensure your awnings retract when winds reach a certain level. Sun Sensors extend your awnings when intensity raises to a certain level.

By expanding your entertaining space with awnings, you can definitely spend the entire day outside with your guests while being protected from harmful UV rays. Invest in awnings for expanding your entertaining space, use an honest company, trusted by Arizona homeowners.

All Pro Provides Quality Awnings for Your Entertainment Space

We give quality solutions for expanding your outdoor space with Awnings, only utilizing Somfy Motors, and premium materials. Our awnings are customized to fit your style while providing you comfort all year round. All of our awnings are made with high quality fabrics and come with a 10-year warranty.

East-West or North-South: Where Should Your House Face?

For a number of homeowners, orientation matters when it comes to where the house faces. Many would opt for east-facing homes for that beautiful sunrise or a home that’s facing west for cooler mornings that are great for sleeping in. When you’re living in Arizona however, having an east-west facing house can actually entail problems.


All Pro Shade Concepts installs custom window sun screens, awnings, and patio shades; and are the leading shade providers in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, the East Valley (Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, Queen Creek) and West Valley (Phoenix, Glendale, Sun City, Laveen, Peoria, Avondale, Goodyear).

For home efficiency’s sake, your best bet is to have a home that’s facing north or south. Here’s why.

East-West Facing House


With an east-west facing house, the intense heat will be concentrated on the front and backyard, discouraging yard time with loved ones. Homes rarely have large windows on the side of their homes, they’re usually located at the front & back of the home. The summer sun will beam into windows and temperatures indoors will be a lot higher, demanding more in cooling costs.

North-Facing


Typically a north-facing home will only get sunlight in the back of the home and will be naturally cooler and darker than that of a south-facing home. In a place like Arizona this is typically the home you’ll want to look more at to keep cooling costs down when the temperatures rise. Who wouldn't want to save more money when you're running the A/C so often?

All Pro Shade Concepts will be at the MARICOPA COUNTY HOME SHOWS this March 6-8 2020. Catch us at the State Farm Stadium and take a look at our custom quality awnings, sun screens, and more.

What to Do When You Have an East- or West-Facing Home

If you have a home that faces east or west, your best solution is shade. Trees shading windows can help block heat & sun exposure from entering your home. If you are concerned about your view becoming obstructed, shade installations could be the answer.

Window Sun Screens provide you with increased privacy, where passersby cannot see in, while you can clearly see out. Installing Window Sun Screens on your home can save you up to 25% on Cooling Costs in the intense Arizona summer. 

All Pro Shade Concepts is Phoenix’s most trusted when it comes to sun screens. If you have an SRP Account for your home, you may be eligible for the SRP Screen Shade Rebate Program. SRP is offering customers a rebate of $0.80 per square foot on window screens installed by All Pro Shade Concepts.

Patio Drop Shades keep your home cooler, and also serve as an added layer of shade for you and your guests, when the sun shines into your patio. 

Awnings can be installed over doors or windows to provide protection from sun entering your home. Attaching retractable awnings to patios also provides expansion of shaded entertainment space, that you can retract when not needed.

Patio Shades & Retractable Awnings reduce cooling costs and can both be motorized & integrated with sun or wind sensors, for maximum efficiency.

Host the Most Epic Super Bowl Party

Now that 2019 is but a distant memory, it’s time to look forward to 2020’s first big event - The Super Bowl! Super Bowl LIV 2020 will be at 4:30 PM MST on

Sunday, February 2, 2020

 

If you’re planning to host a Super Bowl party in your home, it’s never too early to prepare. Here are some in hosting the most epic Super Bowl party:

Prepare the Space

Think about how guests will watch the game. Prepare the amount of seating you will need for everyone to enjoy the game comfortably. While the couch may not be adequate to accommodate all your guests, think about putting the game on in different areas. A popular Idea is to have the game on in the backyard. Grill burgers and hot dogs, or grab a beer while enjoying the game as the kids play. 

Comfy seats are essential, and you should set them up so everyone can see the screen and easily access the food. If you’re hosting the party on your patio, you can expand your entertainment space with some awnings, or make it a little more intimate (and bug free!) with some zipper-sealed patio shades. Decorate the area according to the colors of the teams playing with some streamers, mini-flags and foam-fingers, and you’re all set! 

Game & Half-Time Show Fun

Get everyone into the Super Bowl spirit with some fun games around the event. Start a drinking game that revolves around certain plays, commercials, or the half time show. Jennifer Lopez & Shakira will be the headliners for this year's Super Bowl Half Time Show.

Make a pool for Super Bowl predictions before the game starts and have everyone put in a couple dollars to play.  You can even have some fun with the prizes- get a little trophy and pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate the winner.

 

Simple, But Delicious Food

When it comes to Super Bowl parties, there’s no need to be fancy with food. Just remember these two things: savory and sweet. You can never go wrong with classics like barbecue, hotdogs, or tacos. Make your party standout by keeping food presentation cohesive to the Super Bowl theme, if you are feeling up for the challenge try to make a Super Bowl Snack Stadium. For dessert, make some Super Bowl-themed sweets (check out delicious recipes on Pinterest!). 

Lots of Drinks!

A Super Bowl Party is not complete without some refreshing drinks. Think about what kind of drinkers your guests are, and how tipsy you want them to get. Get a beer keg or a cooler full of beer for the occasion.

Of course, not everyone drinks alcohol. Remember to serve fun non-alcoholic drinks for designated drivers and guests who prefer to stay sober. If there are kids attending think of what they would enjoy.

Ready to host the most unforgettable party ever? Let All Pro Shade Concepts get your backyard ready for parties all year round with high-quality shade solutions.

Home Upgrades for 2020

2019 will be ending very soon, and a new decade will start. As the new year draws near, you should start thinking about how you can refresh your home for 2020. Think about the home projects and upgrades you've put off over the years.

Don’t know where to start? Here’s our list of home upgrades you can add to your home this 2020.

Solar Panels

The road to sustainability and self-sufficiency is long, and the first step is renewable energy. Arizona has plenty of sun, so harvesting its power for your own use only makes sense. Solar panels can help significantly cut your utility costs. It also serves as a backup when grid power is down. When air conditioning costs are at its highest in the summer, you'll be glad to be harvesting your own power.

Going solar not only brings your monthly power bill down, it benefits the environment. It’s definitely worth looking into if you want a more self-sufficient home.

Entertainment or Game Room

If you have an extra room that’s been gathering dust, one good way to make use of it is to transform it into an entertainment or gaming room. While it’s okay to keep your entertainment electronics in the living room, an entertainment room sets an exclusive ambiance, where you can binge-watch Netflix films, watch sports, or play your favorite video games.

Wow your guests with a new pool table, air hockey table, dart boards, ping pong table, or poker setup. Get a projector and install a wet bar to host the greatest super bowl parties for years to come.

Awnings & Patio Shades

Do you need more shade in your backyard?  Sun protection is a must in the intense Arizona sun. Poolside Retractable Awnings can add some much-needed shade to your pool. With some shade, you can extend your swimming time without worrying about getting sunburned. Arizonians love to have the awnings extend over the pool, eliminating the hassle of setting up an umbrella. Awnings can also expand your outdoor entertainment space when you invite friends over. Motorized Patio shades, another luxurious addition, can reduce the glare and heat coming into your patio, so you can enjoy cooler areas with the sun blocked.

Home Automation System

Home automation is undoubtedly a necessary addition to today's modern home. It lets you control almost anything in your home. And you don't need to buy a huge system right off the bat, either. You can start with small upgrades like lighting and climate control using readily-available devices like Google Home or Amazon Echo/Alexa.

Install responsive sensors for motorized patio shades and awnings, so it retracts or opens automatically depending on the sunlight exposure and wind speed. You can also try sleek, motorized, interior blinds/shades - where you can set them to retract or extend based on a timer. With home automation, the possibilities are endless!

Of all these home upgrades, getting shade solutions is the easiest. It’s an effective way to cut cooling costs during the summer, and you can enjoy other benefits for the rest of the year. All Pro Shade Concepts is Arizona’s most reliable shade solution installer. If you’re not sure what shade solution your home needs, we do FREE HOME INSPECTIONS, no pressure to buy!
