Managing Heat Gain by the Season

Heat gain is an important factor of your interior temperature, during the winter and the summer. To keep your interior temps down during the summer—and keep them up during the winter—you need to manage how the sun enters your home. You can plant a tree and wait years for it to grow; or you can install a retractable awning. Watch the video for other ways to manage your house’s heat gain.

A retractable patio cover or awning can make all the difference when it comes to heat gain throughout the year. The awning can cover your exterior and reduce your heat gain during the summer. When you need some heat gain in the winter, then simply bring the retractable awning back in.

Signs Your Home Could Benefit from Solar Screen Installation

While awnings are very important to keep your patio shaded, you should still consider other ways to protect your interior. Solar screens are installed on the outside of your windows, and they can block over 90% of the sun’s heat. To learn more about how you can benefit with a solar screen installation, continue reading below.

Rising Energy Bills

When summer comes around, it may seem normal to notice a rise in your cooling bill. However, you can keep your bill steady or even reduce it when you install a solar screen over all of your windows. A solar screen installation creates another layer of insulation that contributes to a steady interior temperature. This screen is just as important during the winter too; the added insulation keeps warm air inside. By blocking solar heat in the summer and preventing warm air from escaping in the winter, you should notice a reduction in your energy bills.

Fading Furniture

When the sun beats through your windows, the ultraviolet rays do more than increase the temperature inside. These rays can fade and damage the appearance of your furniture, flooring, and walls. Fabrics, plastics, wood, and so much more can all fade from sun exposure. With a solar screen, however, you can keep your interior furnishings better protected against the harsh rays of the sun.

Glaring Sun

In addition to the sun’s rays heating up your house and fading your furniture, the glare can become annoying and distracting. If you want a dark media room or a blacked-out bedroom, then a solar screen can help cut down on the sun’s glare. A solar screen installation will not black out a room—because they do not impede your view—but they will cut down on the sun’s light and help darken a room.

Moran Canvas Products can help you outfit your windows with solar screen installations in San Diego, CA. We specialize in many types of patio covers and residential awnings, so please call us at (619) 462-7778 to get your installation started.

Why Choose a Custom Canvas Product for Your Business?

Businesses must always seek out ways to stand out and attract customers. A custom canvas product—such as an awning or patio cover—will provide more customer attraction for a business than one without a custom product. Here is a brief look at why it is so important for businesses to invest in custom projects like awnings:

Commercial awnings are beneficial because they provide shade and lower energy costs. However, a commercial awning can do so much more once it has been outfitted with a custom logo, business name, or slogan. By choosing a large or bright awning, and then placing an equally noticeable image on it, businesses will soon have an influx of customers. By featuring the business name across a fixed awning, customers are likelier to notice and enter a shop or building.

Work with Moran Canvas Products to create an original and visual custom project in San Diego, CA. We pride ourselves on designing and manufacturing unique canvas products for our commercial and residential customers. Please call us at (619) 462-7778 to get the design process started.

Tips for Choosing the Right Outdoor Curtains for Your Patio

Patio covers come in many shapes and sizes, including outdoor curtains. These curtains can drape over your windows, around your patio, or enclose a cabana. Continue reading for some helpful tips when choosing your new outdoor curtains.

Tip #1: Consider the Sunlight

Sunlight is probably one of the reasons you are looking for outdoor curtains, so it should be one of the determining factors of what kind of curtains you prefer. If you have intense sunlight entering your cabana throughout the day, then you may prefer outdoor curtains that will block most of the sunlight and heat. However, if you do not have a lot of sunlight, then install sheer curtains to still allow in some light throughout the day. Either way, choose the curtains that will stand up to regular sunlight without damage.

Tip #2: Determine Your Need

Consider the reasons that you are looking for outdoor curtains. Are you looking for a decorative installment or a way to block the sun? Perhaps you are attempting to gain some privacy from neighbors or nearby establishments. Your reasons may dictate what type of outdoor curtain installation you choose. If you are interested in curtains for privacy issues, then you may prefer curtains made of a heavier material. These will give you more privacy over a sheer curtain.

Tip #3: Find the Right Setup

Look around your property for the right place to set up curtains before purchasing them. The cost and installation process may change depending on where you prefer to set up your curtains. For example, outdoor curtains could fit over your sliding glass door to the patio, or you may wish to enclose your patio with curtains. There are many choices available to you with outdoor curtains.

Get a Look at the Shade Sail Installation Process

Sun shades are a common product used in commercial and residential establishments. They are very effective as a patio cover, and they can come in a variety of colors and designs. The installation process is relatively simple as well. Watch the video for a better look at how the professionals install a sun shade.

Depending on the location, a sun shade will be pulled tight between several different points. By pulling the shade into a tight, wrinkle-free product, it will resist wind and rain damage throughout the year. It will also provide a pleasant amount of shade to protect properties from heat gain and solar damage.
