How much energy is lost through your door? Most of the time, people believe that closing the door helps to lock out moisture, the elements, and any heat or cooling lost. A good door can do that. However, without energy-efficient doors – or doors designed to create a strong seal – your home could be wasting money on heating and cooling costs. Door replacements are available to help improve this and could give you the look you desire in a door as well.
How Do You Know If You Have Energy Efficient Doors?
Most of the time, if you’ve purchased energy-efficient doors, you will know it. The manufacturer will provide you with information on just how energy efficient the doors are and why. Our team at Master Seal can provide you with a breakdown of which doors are the most energy-efficient that we offer. That’s important information because it tells you how much money you will be spending to heat or cool your home.
There are a few things you can look for to know just how energy efficient doors in your home are.
- Is light peeking in through space around the door’s entry? If so, air is getting into and out of the home.
- On a cold day, run your hand around the edge of the closed door. Do you feel cold air coming into your home?
- Is the tile or flooring located right in front of the door cool to the touch during the winter months or hotter than other areas during the summer?
- Do you place a rug or towel in front of the door to keep the cold air out?
- If your door has window panes on it, are there areas of moisture building up or cracks that allow air in or out?
These are all indications that door replacements may be your best bet. The sooner you act, the better.
Replacing Your Door is a Good Investment
There are a lot of types of doors on the market. Any of these can be a better option than what you have if they provide a strong seal around the door. Most of the basic doors being sold in department stores do not offer that tight seal you need. That’s where our team at Master Seal can help you.
We offer a wide range of door options. Any of these materials are going to be energy efficient because of the design we offer. That is going to improve your door’s energy efficiency significantly. Some of the options we offer are:
- Steel entry doors
- Fiberglass entry doors
- Aluminum storm doors
- Security storm doors
- Patio door systems
That’s not to say that all fiberglass or aluminum doors are the same. The key here is to look for any Energy Star rating provided by the manufacturer. If there is not one, find out what makes that door strong and sealed? If they cannot tell you, that’s a clear indication you need a specialist to handle your doors.
Our team can do that for you. When you give us a call, we will ensure you choose energy-efficient doors for any door replacements you need to make. You can appreciate the improvement right away.
