They also function to keep out light, contain warmth and block heat from entering the apartment. To ensure Fergus apartment residents are taking full advantage of their curtains, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together some tips that will help you select blinds and curtains that will serve more than one purpose.

 

Keep out Light
If you’re trying to keep the light out of your apartment’s rooms, drapes are an ideal solution. Adding blackout liners to the backs of your existing curtains is an effective and cost-effective method. This fix will make curtains thicker and get you the desired effect without spending a ton of money. Another option that awards you more flexibility involves pairing a translucent curtain with a separate blackout curtain. This method will allow you to alternate between filtering light with the translucent curtain and complete darkness with the blackout fabric.

 

Contain Warmth

Switching up your curtains every season will extend their life and will save them from fading. Fight the cold on a budget by keeping the curtains of the south, east and west-facing windows open on sunny days and closing them at night to reduce heat loss. Drapes and curtains have been shown to reduce heat loss in winter by up to 10 percent.  Thick and heavy insulated fabrics are the best option, as they will prevent cold air from seeping into your apartment and warm air from escaping it. Located at 100 Century Drive in Orangeville, Connie’s Custom Curtains has a large selection of blinds and curtains to choose from. The Executive Suites at 908 Kelsowood Lane and Executive Suites at 912 Kelsowood Lane are a two minute-drive and an eight-minute walk from the store. The Executive Suites at 19 Victoria Crescent are a two-minute drive and a 13-minute walk, the Executive Suites at 352 Gordon Street are a 31-minute drive and the Executive Suites at 466 Elora Street are a seven-minute drive and 41-minute walk.

 

Block Heat

Drawing the curtains during the day is an easy and effective way to keep the hotter temperatures out of your apartment space. Curtain materials also play a role in the temperature of your apartment. Lighter, more breathable fabrics like cotton will deflect the sun’s rays while thicker fabrics will lock in heat.

 

Privacy

With a large selection of graphic patterns available, curtains not only provide privacy, but they’ll also enhance your apartment’s personality. Drop by Mary’s Draperies & Curtains located at 764 Willow Road in Guelph and peruse their large selection of curtains and drapes. The Wellington Court Apartments are a 25-minute drive, the Executive Suites at 952 Kelsowood Lane are a 27-minute drive and the Executive Suites at 474 Elora Street are a 22-minute drive from the store. The Executive Suites at 338 Gordon Street is an 11-minute drive and 38-minute transit commute from the store.

 

Take these guidelines into consideration and make your curtains do more than one job. Located at 470 Elora Street, 654 Saint David Street North, 916 Kelsowood Lane, 920 Kelsowood Lane, 924 Kelsowood Lane and 342 Gordon Street, Williams and McDaniel’s Executive Suites at the Fergus apartments offer residents great rental opportunities and unparalleled customer service.

Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL) are a cost-effective option that use significantly less energy, cause less pollution and are extremely versatile. To educate residents of the Fergus Apartments, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together some green benefits and other things to know about CFL lighting.

 

Energy Efficiency

One of the most notable benefits of CFL bulbs is their energy efficiency. When compared to other light bulbs, a CFL uses 50 to 80 percent less energy to produce the same amount of light. Williams and McDaniel’s Wellington Court Apartments are all fully equipped with CFL lighting and for replacement bulbs drop by The Home Depot located at 63 Woodlawn Road West, which is a 19-minute drive from the apartments. The Executive Suites at 470 Elora Street and Executive Suites at 474 Elora Street are a 17-minute drive from the store, while the Executive Suites at 952 Kelsowood Lane are a 20-minute drive and the Executive Suites at 338 Gordon Street are a 10-minute drive from the store.

 

Money Savings

While the initial cost of a CFL is pricey, these light bulbs have a lifespan that is 10 times longer than the traditional variety, which means they need to be replaced less often. Standard incandescent bulbs will last for a year, but a CFL can last anywhere from 8 to 10 years and will produce the same amount of light at a lower energy cost. Recent experiments have illustrated that CFLs can burn brightly for 10,000 hours, whereas incandescent bulbs burned for just 800 to 1,500 hours. CFLs do boast a higher price tag, but they’ll ultimately save you money in the long run.

 

Pollution

Switching to CFLs can help you limit your harmful impact on the environment. Over the course of its life, a CFL saves 450 pounds of carbon dioxide from being produced and entering the environment. Located at 345 The Boardwalk, Lowe’s has a large selection of lighting options, including CFLs. The Executive Suites at 352 Gordon Street, Executive Suites 19 Victoria Crescent, Executive Suites at 908 Kelsowood Lane, Executive Suites at 912 Kelsowood Lane and Executive Suites at 466 Elora Street are all less than 45 minutes away from the store by car.

 

Versatility

One of the great things about CFLs is they can be used in almost any light fixture that currently accepts a traditional bulb. If you are using them for three-way lights, dimmers or outdoors, you might need a special variety of CFL as traditional CFLs might have a shortened lifespan with these functions. Drop by Dixon Home Hardware Building Centre located at 745 Saint David Street North for spare light bulbs and other energy efficient options. The Executive Suites at 645 St David North,

Executive Suites at 916 Kelsowood Lane, Executive Suites at 920 Kelsowood Lane, Executive Suites at 924 Kelsowood Lane and Executive Suites at 342 Gordon Street are less than a 15-minute walk and less than a five-minute drive from the store.

 

Switch out traditional light bulbs for CFLs and enjoy the benefits of energy efficient, cost-effective lighting. Williams and McDaniel’s Wellington Court Apartment units are fully outfitted in CFL lights to provide you with a brighter, greener rental option.
