Cottage and home

We have a west facing cottage, and had recently bought a west facing home. We love these blinds - now we can eat dinner at the dining room table without sunglasses! They really block the heat as well, and we can enjoy our beautiful views. When winterizing the cottage - really easy to just flip around.

Emergency

I had made inquiries re: solar blinds with Diana, asking lots of questions. She answered all my questions thoroughly without rushing me and no pressure. Because of an Expedited surgery date we had to make decisions quickly and Diana was able to help me measure on FaceTime and put a rush on the order to get the blinds delivered before my husband was out of commission for a lengthy amount of time. I really appreciated her kindness <3 The blinds are great too!

Important part of my climate-change plan

At first I thought that Krumper Blinds were beyond what I would ever pay for window coverings. However, once I started investigating prices, I found that by paying a little more, I could gain energy efficiency, reduce the strain on and increase the longevity of my HVAC system, keep a clear view of the outside world (this was big for me), increase the overall comfort of my home, provide additional UV protection for the interior of my home, allow my kitty to comfortably spend time in her tree at the front window without feeling too hot in the direct western sun in the summer nor cold in the winter, all while the blinds gradually pay for themselves by my lower utility costs.

Diana and Yuri are friendly and informative and just nice people with whom to do business. Yuri takes great pride in doing a good job.

I had Krumper Blinds installed over 2 years. The dual sides of the newer blinds are marked “summer” and “winter”— a nice touch.

I found reasonably priced and quality simple cellular blinds to install over the solar blinds for privacy in the bedrooms. Some people like frills and swoops of curtain, but the simpleness of the Krumper and cellular blinds works for me.

One issue for me has been the unwinding of the blinds: at the turn-over of the seasons, some of my blinds unwound at the top. I have never been able to reset the amount wound at the top along with the set of the chain for the proper length of the blinds. Some are now too short and some too long.

Another improvement to the blinds would be something to lock the length in place once it has been set for each window.

I am really happy that I have invested in these blinds. Along with new windows, additional insulation in the attic, insulated siding and an R16 garage door, the Krumper Blinds have made my 1985 townhouse very energy-efficient, a lot more comfortable in the new climate and I feel ready to face more climate change and higher utility prices.

Window blinds - solar, environmental

I live in an older home with very little insulation and large windows and a patio door in the back of the house. These blinds are neutral colours, so pretty unobtrusive and I have found that they made a noticeable difference to the temperature in these rooms (especially in summer). They are a bit pricey, but the material looks like it will last a very long time and they do make a difference. Excellent customer service - you even get a seasonal email reminder to turn them (different sides face outwards in summer and winter). Recommended!

Solar blinds for a badly-insulated solarium

I have a badly-insulated solarium where heat goes way up in the summer: if I happen to close the door, the temperature quickly jumps to over 30 degrees Celsius. In winter, it is cold despite the heating.

I read an article on Krumpers Solar Blinds and was interested until I heard how much blinds for my solarium would cost. I naturally hesitated. Am I glad my hesitation did not prevent me from going ahead with the project!

First of all, Diana and Yuri offered me excellent advice and service, without ever pressuring me into buying their product. They came together for the initial measurements, then Yuri installed the blinds by himself, showing me how they work and how to turn them around. Almost a year later, I get reminder emails to know when it is time to change sides.

But excellent service with no pressure is not the only reason I am so happy. Their blinds helped bring down my hydro costs considerably last winter, and the temperature in my solarium is way more comfortable this summer. I am no longer afraid of leaving my cat in the solarium with the door closed (I used to be scared that she'd die because of excessive heat).

I was a well worthwhile investment that is going to pay off after a few winters.

Wonderful solution

We had to have custom-made screens for our very large front deck windows and two years later we are very impressed with this product and the service we received. We get full sun on these windows and the temperature drop in our front hall has been significant, keeping our place much cooler in summer and conversely, keep the heat in during the winter.

There is an added benefit as the screens work in the same way as blinds but are much easier for us to manage and while they let light in during the day they provide privacy. We do a lot of walking in our area and have noticed these large new homes with huge glass windows which remain uncovered for the first few months/year and then suddenly have curtains or solid screens - I suspect for reasons of heat,cold and privacy. I'm always so thankful that we found Krumpers.

Immediate Relief

Moving had pluses. One of them wasn’t unrelenting sun and heat in our living room and lack of privacy in our open concept kitchen- family room. We decided to have all west and east facing windows done. Within 2 hours the relief was palpable in the LR and we could immediately feel our sense of privacy in the kitchen- family room.

Then the winter came. We saved 15% on our heat bill. We haven’t had an opportunity to track our hydro savings from air conditioning.
Quality costs. We never regretted the expenditure.

Very effective energy and $$$ saver

We have large south facing windows and sitting near the windows in winter was chilly but no more.
In summer the rooms stay cool and comfortable. The blinds are very easy to flip.
Diana backs and supports the product to a highest level. We are 100% satisfied and have recommended the blinds to many friends.
Best regards,
Caroline Pope

Skylight blind

Very pleased with this company and their service. Solar blind works as advertised in both winter and summer. Also, when there was some flaking of materials from the screen they replaced the product promptly and free of charge.

FIRST CLASS PRODUCT WITH AMAZING PERSONAL ATTENTION

We live in Belleville and went to see the Krumper blinds and ordered them right away. We are absolutely delighted with them. We paid for the amazing view of Lake Ontario and these blinds allow us to easily see the amazing vista while keeping us warm and cozy. Our first heating bill was so low we could hardly believe it! They seamlessly disappear during the day and still allow us this amazing view. At night they have a lovely silvery look which fits perfectly. I wish everyone could experience these amazing blinds. They are 100% better than the usual blinds you see and the heating and cooling savings make these first class option!! Thanks Diana and Yuri
