I just wanted to send you a note to express our satisfaction and delight with both the performance and aesthetics of Krumpers Solar Blinds.
We knew we wanted Krumpers Solar Blinds for our “Innovations Building” at CRC building 94 as only the latest technology was being utilized in its retrofit and since Krumpers Blinds have been validated for energy efficiency via extensive laboratory testing we thought that the installation in the Innovation facility would be a great on site validation. As well we wanted to ensure that the view through the windows would not be compromised as the lovely natural surroundings enhance both the well-being of its occupants and their productivity.
The second floor of the facility’s perimeter is encompassed by glass windows facing south thus a great deal of heat (even with Energy Star windows) was coming into the space making it not only uncomfortable but more over a drain on the air-conditioning system.
It was quite something to see the installation of the blinds and the immediate change in temperature occurring. As the blinds were put up, the area became cooler; one could just walk the perimeter and feel the temperature difference between the areas of where the blinds had already been installed, in contrast to the areas still left to be outfitted. Although as mentioned we were aware of the lab results it is quite something to feel the difference for ourselves. Thus, I can say that energy saving are quantifiable but comfort goes beyond the numbers.
Service is another area where I would like to applaud Krumpers. One of the blinds did not seem to hang quite right. Not only was my concern addressed and resolved but was done so in real time.
We are very pleased with the performance and service of Krumpers Solar Blinds and will not only be utilizing them in other facilities but moreover recommending them.
