Prepare Home for Visitors During Tourist Season

It is spring again in Arizona and the springtime festivities are in full swing. Extremely hot during summer and very cold during winter, springtime is the prime time for doing outdoor activities and is also the time when tourists come to visit. The March to May season can be some of the busiest with Spring training Baseball, rodeo and other cultural events scheduled for the season. With the influx of tourists, it is very likely that friends and family could come calling and it would be best if you are prepared to entertain them. One of the best ways to prepare your home for visitors is to create and protect your entertainment space.

Beat the Heat


The hot Arizona sun can be relentless and providing a shaded space can mean the difference between having fun and suffering in the midday sun.  Create more shaded entertainment space for barbecues and pool parties by adding awnings. Awnings create more shaded space where you can entertain during the day time. Prepare your home for visitors by installing awnings near the pool area or over the back patio. 

 

It would also be a lot more comfortable if you could grill at your barbecue in the shade and avoid getting grilled by the midday sun yourself, awnings or patio shades (depending on your grill's location) are perfect to provide protection from the sun.

Create a comfortable grilling area to cook up some delicious meals for your friends & family. All Pro Patio Shades are perfect for your next outdoor event.

Night and Day Protection


The hot sun is not the only problem when entertaining your guests. Even at night, the wind can bring dust particles and debris. There is also the problem of insects which can land on and contaminate your food. Mosquitoes can also be another problem when entertaining outdoors. Protect yourself by installing window screens and patio shades. Zipper sealed patio shades can protect you from the dust and bugs while still allowing the fresh breeze to refresh everyone.

Indoor Entertaining


While the beautiful weather brings you and your guest outside, you can also prepare your home for indoor fun. Fresh window sun screens can provide sun protection, while allowing a wonderful breeze into your living areas or bedrooms. Ditch the eye sore of faded or torn screens before your guests arrive.

The Future is Home Shade Automation

A little over a decade ago, home automation was but a dream to many homeowners. Today, we’re living the future we imagined: We have smartphones, smart TVs, and even smart refrigerators. Why should shades and awnings be any different? Switching from manual to automated shades can make your life easier in many ways. Here are a few reasons to switch!


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).

Convenience


Imagine taking the time to walk around your house to roll all window and patio shades down. Home shade automation is designed to make things easier for you. Motorized awnings and roll shades can be controlled remotely via your smartphone. You can also schedule when your awnings and patio shades will open.

All Pro Shade Concepts offers MyLink by Somfy so you can control your motorized patio shades and awnings with ease.  Now you can use your time & energy for things that really matter.

Energy Efficient


Cooling your home consumes a lot of power, especially if you live in Phoenix, one of the hottest cities in the US. Automated shades can help you regulate your power consumption by ensuring comfort when you need it most. Sun sensors can detect when your patio shades should be rolled down to keep your home cool, especially beneficial in the summer.

Peace of Mind


Worried about leaving your patio shades and awnings exposed to the elements? With home shade automation, you never have to leave your shades at the mercy of nature. Motorized shades come with the options of wind sensors that can detect weather that could cause costly damage. For example, wind sensors can protect your awnings by automatically retracting them during harsh winds during Arizona's monsoon storms.

Arizona’s monsoon season can be brutal. For your peace of mind, All Pro Shades Concepts can install Eolis 3D WireFree™ and Soliris RTS Sun and Wind Sensors to your motorized shades!

Family Friendly Design


The main problem with manual roll down shades are the mechanisms required to roll them up or down. The cords or chains used in this mechanism can be dangerous for young children and even pets. Home shade automation completely eliminates this problem, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.

How To Maximize The Natural Breeze In Your Arizona Home

Arizona living at it's best!

 

It’s no secret that Arizona can see some sweltering summers. What most people who aren’t locals don’t know though, is how beautiful our spring seasons can be. On average, an Arizona spring season sees temperatures from 77℉ to 85℉. With great weather and sunshine to be enjoyed, there’s no reason to be cooped up inside and running up your electric bill with air conditioning.

 
Here are some tips on how to make the most of spring and invite some Arizona breeze into your home -

Open Windows

The most comfortable way to enjoy the breeze is opening a few windows in your home. Not only do you get fresh air in and circulating around your home, but it’s an energy efficient way to cool down a space.

While the weather is nice enough to open windows, the sun will still come in and heat up your space. However, you can still enjoy having a few windows open and still block out the harsh sun. By installing sun screens from All Pro Shade Concepts, you can have both a breeze and block the sun!

Sun screens are installed on windows in your home and are able to keep a room cooler - blocking 80-90% of the sun’s rays - while still inviting in a breeze. The best part is that it doesn’t block your view from the window. While you’re saving about 20% in cooling costs, you can enjoy the beautiful weather that Arizona has to offer.


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). 

Take advantage of the extraordinary weather! All Pro specializes in the precise installation of awnings, window sun screens, or patio shades to reduce the amount of sun enters your home, while letting the breeze in!

Spend Time On Your Patio

The easiest way to feel a breeze when at home is to just step outside! Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature and bask in the great weather before summer comes. When outside though, you are exposed to the sun’s damaging UV rays. While you could put on sunscreen and generously reapply every 2 hours, that doesn’t help when the sun is directly hitting you and sooner than you know, you’re sweating.

Instead, think about getting an awning or patio shade.

An awning will be retractable with an option to make it motorized, and when purchased with All Pro Shade Concepts, the awning will be made from high quality fabric that will come with a 10-year warranty. If motorized, you could control it with your smartphone and the motor even has a 5-year warranty as well!

Create an Oasis

If you feel that your home needs more than just awning, you could also think about having a patio shade. Patio shades give full coverage from not just the sun but all types of weather. Not only will you be able to enjoy the wonderful spring weather, but you can comfortably enjoy your patio during summer, fall, and winter.

5 Things to Consider When Choosing Between Motorized Shades

Making the decision to invest in motorized shades is not that easy.  Considering the number of windows you need treatments for, the type of motors you want and the cost of the window treatment to stay within your desired budget.
Factors to consider:

  1.     The Durability of the Motor – You need to decide which solution works best for you.  Look for a product that is guaranteed durable and comes with a complete warranty as some products or brands comes with a limited warranty and doesn’t cover all of the parts.  Others, provide a complete warranty, but for a limited time period. All Pro Shade Concepts recommends and uses Somfy motors which are some of the best in the industry.
  1.     Motor’s Compatibility – Know what type of shades it’s compatible with for most window treatment options can be motorized, but not all of them work with all the solutions.
  1.      The App or Remote options that will integrate with the motor – Make sure that your Smart phone supports the app associated with the motor that you selected or see to it that the remote you selected to control your shades comes with a comprehensive warranty.  With this, you can get the most out of your shades and control them remotely.
  1.      How is this Motor Powered? – Motorized window shades are solar powered, battery powered and plug-in or wired.  Each option has its own benefits, preference and size of the window coverings are the main factors that would dictate you to choose one over the other options.  Battery powered motors – is the least expensive of the three motorized options, you don’t need to worry about wiring and electrical costs.
  1.      What Kind of Customer Support You can get if you’re having trouble – Obviously, quality customer service is very important as you may need to interact with customer service with regards to your motorized shades to ensure that the proper support is there to meet your needs.

5 Benefits of Awnings

1. Add another space for entertainment.

Awnings allow more time for outdoor entertainment. Design your space to your desires. You can have guests over without the worry of them getting burned from sun exposure or wet from rainfall. Enjoy your backyard area with friends and family or create your own private sanctuary.

 

2. Awnings not only add beauty, but can add value to your home's market value.

Placing an awning over a patio area creates more livable space- and consequently equity in your home's value. They bring more appeal to homeowners that want an outdoor space to relax and enjoy the weather, without the worry of the sun.  

3. Retractable Awnings give you control of your patio space.

Retractable awnings give you the convenience of controlling whether you want the shade, or not. Retract and extend your awning depending on how much sun or shade you desire. 

4. Awnings can reduce energy costs.

Awnings reduce direct solar heat that is observed through windows and can save you up to 23% on your annual cooling energy costs in the summer. If you choose the retractable awnings, your savings go even further. Retracting awnings during the winter allows the sun to assist in warming your home -throughout the year!

5. Protect your home from the Sun's UV rays, rain, or snow.

Installing awnings can protect your outdoor space from the weather, prolonging the longevity of your outdoor furniture by preventing exposure to direct sun, snow and rainfall that can cause deterioration and discoloration. Awnings can also help prevent the UV rays from damaging your indoor furniture or flooring that may be getting exposure.
