Prepare Your Arizona Backyard as The Temperature Drops

When the Hot Summer is Fading, Make Sure Your Backyard is Ready for Fun

As the summer is nearing its end, you should make improvements to your home, especially to your backyard, so you can take advantage of the amazing weather ahead and spend time with loved ones in the fresh air. If you are thinking about what improvements your backyard could use before you start hosting, read our tips to have the perfect backyard for hosting.

Prepare Your Lawn

In Arizona, the summers are so hot and the winters so cold, that we must plant winter grass every year, as the Bermuda grass that’s active in the summer cannot survive the winter and goes dormant. 

From September to May Bermuda grass will not be seen; This is when you have to plant the Ryegrass to get a new green grassy lawn in winter months.Homeowners overseed their grass to ensure that they grow well and thick through the colder months, with the most ideal time to start seeding being early October.

Hang Lighting

To add the essence of luxury and provide lighting for night time hangouts, by installing recessed lighting in your patio area or hanging globe lights over your yard. Aside from that, they also add an aesthetically-pleasing aura to your home.

Outdoor Seating

Make your home extremely comfortable when you have guests by investing in quality outdoor furniture. Think about whether you want metal or wood, and make sure any fabric that is used is water resistant, fade resistant, and mildew resistant as the element can do major damage quickly in the Arizona climate.

Protect Against the Elements

  • Awnings - With moisture and rain making their way to your home, awnings aren’t only useful for protecting your home from the heat of the sun. If you want to protect your home from rain, awnings are the way to go. Motorized & manual options available.
  • Patio Shades - Expanding your outdoor space in the winter can also involve patio shades. They protect your patio from the elements, allowing you to spend much more time outdoors. Zipper-Sealed Patio Shades provide additional protection, keeping bugs sealed out of the area. Motorized & manual options available.
  • Window Sun Screens - Sun screens are great for the winter, as well as throughout the summer. The best things after a HOT Arizona summer, is to open your windows when the weather is finally bearable. Window Sun Screens are vital as they allow you to keep windows open, without letting bugs into your home. Learn about SRP Screen Rebate

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.

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.

Get Ready to Entertain As the Temperatures Start to Drop

School has started, and the summer’s almost a distant memory. As Fall closes in, holiday events and seasonal festivals will soon pop up around The Valley. With more visitors pouring in as the temperature starts to drop, it’s important to prepare your home ahead of time. Here are ways to prepare your home for fall season visitors:

Backyard Retreat

What better way to welcome your visitors than with a lovely meal in your backyard? Create a space to entertain guests by expanding the shaded area with awnings. Though the temperatures are starting to drop, the sun over Arizona can still be harsh during the day time. Shield your guests with a shade structure that can be retracted anytime you want.   

Intimate Interiors

Interior roll shades provide the much needed privacy for you and your guests. When it starts to get cold outside, it can also serve as insulation. Motorized interior roll shades are so convenient to use, especially when equipped with sensors. You don’t have to worry about rolling the shades down when it’s too bright out, because the sensors will do the work for you. All you have to do is focus on entertaining your guests with great food and indoor activities.

 

 

All Pro Shades Concepts, are Arizona's #1 Trusted SRP Certified Contractors that can install window sun screens eligible for SRP's Screen Rebate.

SRP is offering customers a rebate of $0.80 per square foot on professionally installed shade screens to keep their homes cooler during Phoenix's summer months.

Insect & Debris-Free Patio

When orange leaves start plummeting to the ground, we want to be there to witness it. However, we don’t want these leaves getting into our outdoor furniture. Debris and insects are abundant during fall, and these can easily get into your patio area. To prevent this, you can install zipper-sealed patio shades in your home. You and your visitors don’t have to worry about blocking the view or the breeze with patio shades. Patio shades are created to shield your home from outdoor elements without obstructing the view.

 

Beautiful Curb Appeal

Say hello to Fall-decorating with your revamped exterior windows. Old, faded window screens definitely don’t go well with holiday decor, so make sure your sun screens are upgraded to sturdier, more elegant-looking ones before you start decorating. Window sun screens are a great way to enhance your home’s curb appeal, and will increase your home’s value. Your visitors will definitely appreciate your home’s picture-perfect look!

The Benefits of a Shade Solution System

A home with tons of natural light can create a positive space. Sometimes though, the heat can be way too harsh for you to endure. Being able to control when the amount of natural light that comes into your home should be an option if you want maximum comfort. Motorized residential shades and sunscreens are the best way to stay in control, so you can enjoy your entire home with your friends and family. Here’s how motorized shades, awnings, and sunscreens can help you stay in control:

Protection from UV Rays

If your home is facing south, chances are it’s getting a lot of sunlight for most of the day. If you’re dealing with Arizona heat, the temperature inside your home will rise fast. Not only that - constant contact with direct sunlight is bad for your skin in the long run. Motorized interior roll shades can easily solve this problem. When installed with sensors, it will automatically roll the shades down when it detects too much sunlight.

Privacy and Security

If you’d like a more permanent solution, sunscreens can block most of the sunlight during the day. It’s also an excellent way of blocking your home’s view from the outside, protecting you from nosy neighbors or people who like to snoop around in general. It’s also a great way to enhance your home’s curb appeal.

All Pro Shades Concepts, are Arizona's #1 Trusted SRP Certified Contractors that can install window sun screens eligible for SRP's Screen Rebate.

SRP is offering customers a rebate of $0.80 per square foot on professionally installed shade screens to keep their homes cooler during Phoenix's summer months.

Save Money with Energy Efficiency

If your home is facing North, your backyard gets the bulk of the sunlight. The back of your house can be hotter than other rooms, and cooling this area may be expensive. How can you cool a room and save power at the same time? Motorized awnings can be a good solution for this. It expands your space and gives it more shade at the same time. Poolside awnings can be a great addition to your backyard too, if you want to have more shade while you swim.

 

 

Protect Furniture from getting Sun-Bleached

Sun damage can reduce the quality of your furniture. Patio shades are a great addition to your lounge or patio and prevent irreversible damage to your outdoor furniture. Zipper-sealed patio shades prevent debris and insects from getting into your home. It also lets the breeze in while blocking the sunlight, so you can enjoy the space with family and friends.

Everything Your Arizona Home Needs During the Extreme Summers

Arizona can be unbearable during July and August. The intense heat can make us lethargic and unproductive, and the next thing you know, the summer’s over. This is why you should prepare your home for the summer, if you haven’t yet. It’s only going to get hotter from here on out. Here’s everything your Arizona home needs during extreme summers:

Install Screens and Roll Shades

While it’s good to let natural light in once in a while, a good amount of heat in your home comes from your windows. Installing shade screens on your windows can help block up to 80% of the sun’s rays, in turn, cooling your home. SRP customers in Arizona may also enjoy rebates when they get window shade screens installed professionally. Motorized interior roll shades are also a  great option if you want to open or close the shades at the touch of a button. 

Clean or Replace Your Air Filters

Because of the dry weather, dust particles get stuck everywhere, especially in your AC’s air filters. Forgetting to replace or clean them may cause your air conditioning to malfunction, affecting its efficiency. The heat in Phoenix can go as high as 115 degrees, so it’s best to get your AC serviced at the start of summer.

Keep Your Backyard Cool

The heat shouldn’t be an excuse for you to avoid the outdoors during summer. It only takes a few steps to prepare the perfect backyard for you to relax in. First things first - expand your entertainment space with awnings and patio shades. This will make sure you get enough shade throughout the day, while enjoying your pool or barbecuing. Misting systems are also a great way to regulate your backyard’s temperature. 

Conduct a Home Energy Audit

You spend a lot more time cooling your home during summer than the rest of the year. Because this alone raises your electric bill, it’s important to make sure everything else in your home is working properly. Have a professional conduct a home energy audit for you. They will check your home’s insulation, lighting, use of electronics, and check for leaks. If you’d rather do the audit yourself, Energy.gov has written a simple home energy audit guide for you to follow in their blog.

Ways to Prepare Your Home for Monsoon Season Storms

The increasing humidity can only mean one thing - Arizona’s monsoon season is here! From June through September, Arizonans may experience high winds, heavy rains, and even thunderstorms. So how does one go about preparing for harsh weather conditions? Quick answer: It all starts at home. Here are ways to prepare your home for monsoon season storms.

Protect your shades and awnings

The monsoon feeds on the summer heat and moisture, so naturally, the weather can be a bit erratic. One day the sun’s heat could be unbearable - and the next thing you know, the winds are howling and rain starts pouring. Strong winds can cause damage to your awnings and patio shades.

One good way to protect them is to use sun and wind sensors. Somfy sensors can automatically open or retract your motorized shades and awnings based on weather conditions, so you don’t have to worry about leaving them unattended.

Check your roof and gutters

Before heavy rains start pouring, make sure to do a routine check your gutters. Monsoon winds can send debris flying into your gutters, clogging them. This can cause rain water to overflow and lead to water damage.

You should also get your roof inspected the roof before and after rough storms, to make sure there are no damages that can cause leaks inside your home. Routine check might take some work, but it’s better than spending hundreds of dollars in repairs.

Inspect Your Windows and Screens

If you didn’t get the chance to do a full inspection of your home during spring, now might be the best time to do it. It’s important to check all openings in your home, especially windows. Look for holes that may cause debris and bugs to get in. If you have window screens, make sure they’re attached properly too, as loose screens panels may cause damage to your windows. If you’re unsure, have your windows inspected by reliable shade installers in your area.

Brush up on Safety Practices

Monsoon Safety Awareness week (June 14-19) may have passed, but it’s never too late to educate yourself. The Arizona Emergency Information Network (AzEIN) has compiled a list of articles that can help you and the rest of your household prepare for weather hazards. In their website, you’ll learn how to build a basic emergency supplies kit, flood preparedness, and even pet safety during harsh weather conditions.
