Increase the Energy Efficiency of Your Home with a New Door

Energy Efficient Doors from PJ Fitzpatrick Save You Money!

Exterior doors play a significant role in the energy efficiency of your home. If your doors don’t seal properly to the entryways of your home and cause drafts, the money that you spend each month on energy will be more than it should be, because your heating and cooling systems will have to operate more frequently to keep your home at your desired temperature. Drafty doors allow cold air to enter your home during the winter time and also allow conditioned air to escape your home during the summer. Having your door replaced with a newer, more energy efficient door could end up saving you money all year long.

Your front door could only be a small piece of what is causing energy efficiency problems in your home. To make your home as efficient as possible, you need to make sure to replace all of the doors that separate your home from the outside. This includes basement doors that provide an exit way to your property. If those doors are older, they could be less effective at creating a proper seal for your home from the outside. This could lead to an inflated utility bill, which could make home ownership more expensive than it should be.

An older sliding glass door can be the most inefficient feature of your home, if it is not properly sealed because it is a much larger door and because it is constructed of glass, rather than wood or metal. Your sliding glass door could be costing you a fortune and you don’t even realize it. If your sliding glass door is a bit older, now is the time to replace it with a brand new, double paned sliding glass door that will compliment the efficiency of your home.
