Improving Energy Efficiency with the Right Doors for Your Home

If you’re looking for ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home, choosing the right exterior doors is a great place to start. Many homes have older doors that are drafty, are poorly insulated, or otherwise allow heat transfer into and out of your home. By choosing new front doors and patio doors, you can greatly increase the energy efficiency and comfort of your entire house.

How to Choose Energy-Efficient Doors for Your Home

Many of the exterior doors on the market today are much more energy efficient than the older doors on your home. They include advanced features such as quad seal weather stripping and polyurethane insulation to increase their energy efficiency. For patio doors and other sliding glass doors, features such as double-pane glass, low-E glass coatings, and inert gas fills are also designed to increase energy efficiency. When you see these listed as features for new exterior doors, you can be confident that you’re choosing doors that will improve the energy efficiency of your home.

Another important consideration is the company you choose to handle the door installation. Ensuring the new exterior doors are properly fitted in place is essential for creating a weathertight seal when the door is closed. The quality of the door replacement itself can also contribute to the energy efficiency benefits you’ll get from your new doors.
