Are Your Outdoor Screens A One Trick Pony?
When you think of your Phantom Screens Atlanta outdoor screens, it’s easy to imagine their usefulness during the summer and warmer months, where we invariably spend more time connecting with the great outdoors. Patio usage is more common, we’re leaving the windows open more to allow the gentle circulation of a natural breeze, and children are running in and out of the house grabbing ice-cold beverages and snacks in between activities. But what do you do with your Phantom Screens when the weather isn’t as ideal? Do your outdoor screens remain tucked away into their custom casings for weeks or months on end until their next use?
If the answer to that question is yes, there’s no need to be ashamed. We all have household items that experience more use during one season over another. Though this may be the case for your Phantom Screens, we think it’s high time that our customers discovered a multitude of additional ways that their screens can be used all year long. That’s why, in this article, we’ll be discussing how to make the most of your outdoor screens in every season.
It’s Winter. Now What?
Let’s start with winter. In the popular words of 1970s songwriter Carole King, “Winter, spring, summer, or fall/ All you have to do is call/ I’ll be there/ You’ve got a friend!” Your Phantom Screens feel the same way!
We don’t think that anyone would disagree that everyone’s top priority during the winter months is keeping the warm air inside and the cold temperatures out. In this effort to keep things warmer, however, we actually see a spike in dangerous and even potentially disastrous indoor conditions– like housefires! As we’re busy running our heating systems, setting out decorations, hauling in our pine-scented Christmas trees, and cozying up by our fireplaces, we don’t realize it, but what we’re actually doing is setting the perfect conditions in place for wintertime house fires.
With no additional airflow or circulation to temper the indoor heat and congestion, it’s easy to see how these unfortunate events occur. Something as simple as leaving your window or door open for a few intentional moments a day, or during celebratory moments around the table could really balance things out. That’s where your outdoor screens come in!
We aren’t suggesting that you leave your home open to the elements, but sliding your Phantom Screens into place is just the missing touch your home needs during the colder months in order to have that balance that could be potentially life-saving.
Slide Your Screens Into Spring!
As the weather breaks and spring approaches, it’s easier to envision how best to use your outdoor screens. We all know the catchy adage, “April showers bring May flowers,” but have you considered allowing some of that rainwater in through your outdoor screens? Before you click away, we aren’t suggesting that you completely douse your indoors in rainwater, but the mesh of your screens could create a very pleasant and refreshing misting effect as you sit out on your patio and enjoy the beauty of the rainy season. Give it a try! You may be surprised by all of the beautiful wildlife you spot.
Breezing Through Summer, Straight Into Fall
We all know that there’s nothing better than letting in the summer breeze with the help of your custom outdoor screens, so let’s breeze by the warmest season, (ba dum tss!) and head straight into fall.
The beauty of autumn is unparalleled. Soak it in from the comfort of your own home with the help of your outdoor screens! What better way is there to stay cozy than to fully take advantage of your indoor/outdoor effect by standing at your doorway with a mug of warm cider, taking in the gorgeous colorful leaves and refreshing crisp air? Trust us, utilizing your Phantom Screens during this time of year makes for an experience you won’t soon forget.
