Exterior doors are one of the biggest contributors to energy loss, usually accounting for more than 10% of heat loss in an average home. As more and more homeowners aim to keep their homes as energy-efficient as possible through home improvement, you might want to consider tackling door replacement if you think a steady increase in your monthly energy bill is an ongoing problem.
Choosing High-Quality, Energy-Efficient Doors
Air leaks on doors occur because of several reasons. It could be that the doors are uninsulated or improperly installed and sealed. In any case, this can cause your monthly energy bills to skyrocket. While fixing weatherstripping issues work at times, it would be much better to just replace the entire door. When choosing a replacement, consider one that has an ENERGY STAR® label as this assures you that your selection meets energy efficiency standards.
Apart from the labels, you must also be aware of other features the door has. Our door and roof replacement experts recommend looking for a door unit’s R-value and ensuring that it has a polyurethane foam insulation core. Of course, you must also make sure the door you choose is properly installed so there’d be a lower risk of air leakage.
