If you’d like to welcome fresh air into your home, reduce energy costs, enjoy natural lighting and more… this is your sign to purchase a retractable screen door from Phantom Screens.
Our retractable screen door, professionally installed by Ontario Screen Systems Inc., Phantom Screens authorized distributor, is sleek and stylish, easy to use, and most importantly, retracts fully when not in use (preserving the beauty of our balcony door). When we first researched screen doors, our needs were simple: to keep the bugs out. However, with continued use over several months (and seasons), we’ve discovered many surprise benefits, including:
1. Improved air quality = improved mood. You’ve heard the saying, “Like a breath of fresh air” – now sit back and enjoy the real benefits to your emotional well-being and mental clarity when you have fresh air circulating all day long. Phantom Screens retractable screens make it easy – they fit all types of doors including in-swing, out-swing, single, double and slider doors.
2. Reduced energy costs. Especially during the spring and fall – the “in between” seasons where there is less need for heating throughout the day – a retractable screen door can help reduce energy costs by effectively cooling down your interior environment.
3. Let the sunshine in. Don’t underestimate the power of natural lighting! Even though my balcony door has a large window, I was shocked to see just how much light is blocked with a closed door. Our Phantom Screens retractable screen door allows us to completely open our balcony door, and as such, our second floor is flooded with natural light! It’s beneficial to our plants, our work-at-home environment, and of course, our mood!
4. Nature, on our terms. One of my favourite features of having a retractable screen door is the ability to hear the beautiful sounds of nature… without having the critters invade our family room. It’s truly the best of both worlds.
5. A seamless match. With Phantom Screens retractable screen doors, you can choose from signature colours or custom match your door – including wood grain. Plus, because the screen door retracts completely when not in use, you’ll never worry about it clashing with your home’s façade. This means that some entry points where you may not normally consider screen doors – like a double door entryway – can be easily outfitted with functional retractable screens that enhance your life.
Now that you’re convinced you need a Phantom retractable screen door in your life (you’ll love it!), you may have questions about pricing, installation, and current service timelines. Your best plan of action is to visit www.phantomscreens.com for more information! However, let me speak to my experience –
We scheduled a consultation with a professional installer from Phantom Screens, who came to our home (while observing Covid safety precautions). We learned of the different options available to us – for example, latch & release handle vs magnet latching system – in addition to our colour and mesh choices. Once we had made our selections, the installer took measurements and answered any questions we had. It was that simple! In about two weeks (service times vary), our retractable screen was installed.
From there… the five above-mentioned benefits commenced!
It was never a question with whether we’d go with Phantom Screens. Their reputation in the industry is unmatched, and because the company focuses solely on retractable screens, Phantom Screens’ quality, value and level of service is impeccable. I would not hesitate to recommend Phantom Screens enthusiastically to friends and family, and have!
I also wanted to touch on how having the retractable screen door has increased my personal contentment – especially over the last year. Being locked down and mostly stuck indoors hasn’t been easy on anyone. Feeling the sunshine and hearing sounds of nature coming through my balcony door has done wonders for my emotional well-being. My only regret is not having a Phantom Screens retractable screen door sooner!
