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

 

Plant Shade Trees - Trees can definitely add more comfort to your yard by not only providing shade from the rays of the sun but can also drop the temperature in your home if placed by windows. They can also add beauty to your yard’s appearance as well!

Umbrellas - Having some umbrellas ready is a great solution when the Arizona sun starts to turn scorching hot. They’re the quickest and easiest solution if you want to be a little bit comfortable under the heat of the Arizona sun.

 

Patio Shades - Like awnings, patio shades are also excellent when you’re expanding your outdoor space. You even have options available for patio shades, whether zipper

Rising Air Conditioning Costs

Staying in could mean skyrocketing energy bills from increased air conditioning usage, especially if you're working from home and your kids are home more. How can you improve your home to be more energy efficient?

Motion, Sun, and Wind Sensors

As shading your home with awnings and patio shades can keep your home significantly cooler, there are accessories to make motorized shade installation more efficient. Sensors that are able to detect the direction of the wind and the sun’s rays, as well as motion, help in keeping the wind or sun’s rays in check by intelligently sensing them during certain times of the day. 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

Keeping your home cooler with the shade solutions mentioned above can help cool your home, but a key necessity for every Arizona home is window sun screens

Window sun screens can help you save on air conditioning by helping keep your home’s interior cooler, all while providing a better sense of privacy and security. They also give your home that clean and refreshing look. If your screens are torn or worn, now is a great time to replace them.

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.

Hosting a Party in Your Arizona Yard

Spring is the perfect season to have some guests over in your Arizona yard. The weather draws in tourists from different states and it’s the perfect time to have some friends or family members over for an outdoor party.

Like any party, you will have to prepare for it and be an excellent host to your guests. Be sure to consider the points below before you even get started. 

Make a List

You have to keep track of everything for that day, everything you need, such as grocery items, a list of beverages, a music playlist, and some games. Prepare finger foods like deviled eggs and buffalo chicken bites. For your drinks, you can prepare a pitcher of ice fruit punch or some watermelon lemonade. You can also opt for cocktails.

Send Out Invitations

Invitations can be as simple as sending someone a message online or a text. You should be specific about the time and date of your party, as well as your home address in case you’re inviting people who don’t know where your home is. Make sure you request that they respond or confirm so that you can prepare for the number of people at your party.

Have Some Activities Ready

You can prepare some games such as charades or musical chairs. You should also consider those who just want a relaxing experience so you can have some music playing while they’re sipping on their drinks. You could also light up a fire pit in the evening for some good conversation.

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.

Prepare Outdoor Space

There are a number of things that you should consider when preparing your backyard for a party:

  • See to it that you have enough outdoor furniture. You don’t want to see anyone without a seat during your party so you should have enough chairs for everyone who responded to your invitation. You should also check if your tables and chairs are free of dirt and mildew.
  • Maintain Landscape. Weeds and tall grass can be unattractive to look at and will prevent your guests from enjoying the party. When you find that your grass is too tall or when there’s an abundance of weeds, then get trimming before the party even starts.
  •  Make sure you have enough shade. Under the heat of the Arizona sun, you’re going to need an ample amount of shade that will extend your entertaining space. You have a couple of options available for you
    • Awnings: Awnings provide the much-needed shade that extends your outdoor space to protect you and your guests for when the Arizona sun gets too intense. They should be able to block out UV rays but still give you a good view of the outdoors
    • Patio Shades: Maybe you already have enough space for your patio. To give a little more protection from the sun, then you can install patio shades to prevent being struck by the heat of the Arizona sun during certain hours of the day.

Planning for that perfect party will allow you and your guests to have an enjoyable party experience in your yard. Make sure you’re protected from the sun and get shades from a local trusted Arizona provider.
