Available at Home Hardware
TORONTO, June 10, 2014 /CNW/ - The sun is scorching, the a/c bill is
soaring and the kids can't sleep. So what's a mother to do?
Faced with a situation that most Canadians suffer through, Cate
Rushforth fought back with a can-do approach that created a practical,
affordable solution - Window Foil. The aluminized non-stretch polyester
Cate developed with the help of her 17-year-old daughter Sara is easily
applied to windows and then simple to remove after the 10-12 hot weeks
of the Canadian summer.
Once in place, the Sun Reflector Kit foil works amazingly well, reducing
the window's transmission of heat by as much as 90% but still allows
Cate to see her younger kids Samantha, 4 and Jessica, 6 playing
Cate's electricity cost plummeted from over $200 to $67! She knew they
were on to something when their friends and neighbours asked to
replicate their concept, and the Sun Reflector Kit was born.
At $12.99 it's an affordable solution for Canadians
Suddenly Cate found herself in a booming venture. Sara pushed mom to
apply to Dragon's Den and after her winning pitch, the kit drew a
flurry of interest. From that publicity, a deal was consummated and now
the Sun Reflector Kit is on sale at Home Hardware stores from coast to
The Kit contains Window Foil for two or three windows or patio doors,
depending on the home's need. New this year, The Sun Reflector Kit
Refill Roll provides an extra 20 feet of temporary heat reflecting
window foil on a single roll. The measurements are 31.5 x 240 in. or 80
x 610 cm. This product allows customers to purchase extra foil without
buy the complete kit.
Applied easily with just soapy water using the tools in the kit the
Window Foil delivers much more heat reduction than dark blinds or film
making it ideal for Canadians without a/c or those sick of their summer
energy consumption. Air-conditioners are the most expensive household
appliance to run, costing over $200 a month at 21o C and accounting for up to 25% of annual power bills.
The Sun Reflector Kit is practical, affordable and really saves quite a
lot of money. It matches the Canadian seasons by working during our
short summer and then can be removed to offset winter heating costs.
