Early Planning for Spring Visitors

Spring is approaching, and it is easily the most desirable season of the year for many who live in and visit Arizona. Homeowners should plan ahead for incoming spring visitors.

Planning for spring visitors is something that you should keep in mind every year. With so many annual events like Spring Training, or just the perfect weather, spring will always attract visitors to come flocking.

Tidy Up Your Home

The term Spring Cleaning comes from the days when homes were heated by fireplaces, and efforts were made to prevent heat from escaping. The coming of spring and warm weather was an opportunity to air the house and clean it of soot and all the grime accumulated over the year.* Work ahead to remove clutter that has accumulated over the year, providing a comfortable environment for your incoming guests.

Have Snacks & Refreshments Ready

Be the best host and think about your guests’ needs—don’t let them go hungry or thirsty. Have a few alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages ready, along with some appetizers to snack on. Be sure to plan ahead for any children that might be visiting, and ask about any allergies your guests may have.

Come Up With Exciting Activities

There are plenty of activities you can do with your visitors. Take them on a hike, bring them to your favorite restaurants, have game night, or host a barbecue in your backyard. Find out your guests' interests and show them how amazing your city is.

There are so many places to go, events to attend, and memories to be made in Arizona.

Prepare Your Outdoor Space

When the weather is so wonderful outside, you definitely need to prepare your outdoor space for entertaining. Make sure to have enough seating and shade. If you don’t have outdoor furniture or shade solutions in your backyard, then now is the perfect time to invest in some.

Install Awnings

Primarily, awnings are to protect your guests from the sun’s rays. They expand outdoor entertainment space and provide guests with more shade. With retractable awnings, you can extend when you need, and retract when you don’t. This is perfect for monsoon season, protecting your awnings from strong winds. 

Install Patio Shades

Patio shades block off the sun’s glare and can control the temperature so that your guests will be more comfortable. Zipper-sealed patio shades enclose your patio so that bugs & debris cannot ente, ensuring your food & beverages are safe. 

Patio Shades and Awnings can both be manual or motorized, depending on your preference. There are also wind & sun sensors that automate your awnings & drop shades to retract with strong winds or extend when the sun intensifies. Also, to let the fresh breeze into your home while keeping bugs out, consider installing/replacing Window Sun Screens.

All Pro Shade Concepts offers Arizona the most customized experienced shade installations, allowing customers to get exactly what they need & want. Unlike other companies, All Pro can accommodate drop shades over 16 feet, fully encased options, and the very popular zipper-sealed option.

Is Your Home Energy Efficient?

Is it too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer? Do you feel like your wallet is emptying quicker than usual? If you answered yes to either, maybe the real question you should be asking yourself if whether or not your home is energy efficient.

Here are a few things to take into consideration when trying to find out if your home is energy efficient.

The Age of Your Appliances

Your hand-me-down washer and dryer units are all probably wonderful appliances, but if they are not energy star certified, it’s time to upgrade. You may be spending money upfront, but according to Direct Energy, over just a 5 year span you can save over $300 on your electric bill just by switching to more energy efficient appliances.

 

Gaps Between Your Windows

Can you feel air coming through the cracks of your windows? If so, there’s a good chance that you’re turning up the heat or air because of these uncontrolled air leaks. By simply sealing these spots, Energy.gov says you can save around 10-20% on annual heating and cooling bills.

Start a Compost Pile

Reducing the amount of trash you produce daily by starting a compost pile in your backyard not only helps the environment, it can be used to fertilize your garden, where you can grow your very own organic fruits and vegetables.

Use Less Water

According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), homeowners can save about $170 a year on average benefiting from changes to their water usage. Being conscious of running water while doing daily task like shaving or brushing your teeth can be helpful. Also, bathing typically uses 75 gallons of water compared to a shower that uses about 17.2 gallons on average.

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).

Sun Filters Through Your Windows Most Of The Day

Even with sealing the unwanted air coming through gaps in your home, it could still heat up from the sun’s rays coming through the windows. Consider solar blocking drapery or installing sun screens in this case. When you install sun screens in your home, not only do you make your home more energy efficient, but you also get privacy and security from any wandering eyes outside, without the need of bulky fabric.

All Pro Shade Concepts specialize in creating custom sun screens. All Pro Shade Concepts even makes their screens by hand, so you know you’re getting a quality product. These sun screens can block 80-90% of the sun’s rays. Now your home is cooler, more secure, and there are less of the sun’s damaging rays making its way into your home.
