These days it is easy to spot Diana Livshits of Krumpers Solar Blinds in downtown Ottawa, hurrying to another installation project. For this local company, the future is so bright, she must install shades. Over the past eight years, news of Krumpers Solar Blinds has been circulating everywhere in the press. The Ottawa Home Show was abuzz with this all-Canadian local company’s ability to significantly reduce heat transfer, save money through climate control solar technology, all while providing a clear, unobstructed view. Krumpers manufactures and distributes Krumpers Solar Blinds, which helps save on heating and cooling costs all year long by utilizing a dual modular smart-tech design.
Windows are the weakest element in any building structure and as such they significantly contribute to a structure’s fluctuating temperature. Krumper’s Solar Blinds provide a cost-effective way to manage room temperature and boast a reduction in heating and cooling utilities by up to 40 per cent (based on lab results). Krumpers Solar Blinds contain layers of reflective aluminum and graphite which are sandwiched together, perforated at an angle that simulates the same wavelengths as retinal receptions in the eye, allowing for a clear, unhindered view. Then the material is coated with a layer of non-toxic (encapsulated) PVC, which allows visibility on both winter and summer sides of these transparent blinds. The dual modular design is solar reflective on one side and solar absorptive on the other side.
With an equivalent R-10 rating, the blinds provide a passive form of temperature control that aggressively reduces the costs of heating and cooling a building. They reflect solar heat gain, allowing the internal temperature to remain constant. The reflective side of the blinds can be turned inward to take advantage of their absorptive quality, making it possible to capture heat from the sun in winter. Both sides provide 92 per cent of UV protection.
The cost of heating and cooling has risen significantly. In addition, the implementation of Hydro Ottawa’s time of use and the actual rate increase has propelled Krumpers Solar Blinds to the forefront of products that can actually help lower these costs. Krumpers Solar Blinds are priced at $35 per square foot installed for standard windows, and have a proven track record of reducing utility bills.
