We’ve been making and installing custom sunscreens for over 16 years now and I am always amazed with how the attitudes of our customers change as the temperature increases.
Does that beautiful Sacramento summer heat have you down?
Early in the spring when the weather is still cool, we do get the return customers who are thinking ahead and order their sunscreens before the Sacramento valley hits triple digit temperatures; but then when the mercury pushes past 90 degrees, our phone goes crazy. During this busy time of year, I know there will be no rest for our crew until late September.
In addition, when it’s still somewhat cool outside, the most common question we get is usually, “how much will my sunscreens cost me?” Once the temperatures spike, however, the question changes from “how much will it cost” to “how fast can you get them to me?”
I guess when your last PG&E bill sucker punches you with a balance of $450 or more, folks wake up to the fact that solar screens are one of the most effective, least expensive ways to keep a home up to fifteen degrees cooler, while at the same time, reducing your air conditioner’s energy usage significantly.
On a side note, ensuring that your air conditioner isn’t being overworked will help to extend its service life for you and your family, which will help keep more money in your bank account. It’s a real win-win for everyone involved!
Don’t let that heat get you hot under the collar, too!
But the real bummer: when it’s hot, A to Z Screens is BUSY, and lead times can often be as long as six weeks! Some customers are surprised at how popular our sunscreens are, but I remind them it is simply a testament to how effectively they work, and how good of a company we are.
It’s as if you went out to a restaurant with your sweetheart and when you got there, there was an hour wait with standing room only in the lobby. You KNOW you’ve chosen well, and, somehow, the wait time doesn’t seem all that bad. But what if you arrive to a new restaurant on a Friday night and it’s practically empty? What does that tell you?
It’s now August, and temperatures are often in the 100’s. Is your home uncomfortably hot? Does your air conditioner run constantly but still can’t seem to keep up? Was your last utility bill a little ugly?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you really ought to have us out for a hassle free, no obligation free estimate. We’ll be happy to show you samples and colors, and get you on the road to a cooler, more comfortable home. Believe me when I tell you that everyone in your home will thank you for making the investment; your air conditioner just might thank you, too!
