The next time you speak to your local door replacement service about a new door, or even just routine maintenance, ask them about how they can go about insulating your doors and windows in the process. The benefits might just surprise you.
Save Yourself Energy and Money
Every home contains something known as the “envelope,” which is the outer walls, doors, and other openings which impede the effective thermoregulation of your home, allowing air to escape, and forcing you to turn your central heating up and down all the time. This wasted energy ends up appearing on your energy bill in the form of additional heating and cooling costs. A well-sealed envelope, including appropriate insulation, can make a significant impact on your monthly heating and cooling costs.
Increase Your Comfort
Having your door replacement service improve the insulation of your doors and windows not only saves you money, but can reduce the amount of noise pollution from outside your home, reduce the amount of dust, pollen, and insects which are able to infiltrate, control the humidity better, and lower your chances of ice dams, if you live in a cold climate.
