Increase Energy Efficiency with a Storm Door

Dec 09, 2014

storm doorsAlthough the weather has been up and down like a yo-yo the last couple of weeks, it’s probably safe to say that you’ve already figured out where the drafty spots in your home are. Once you’ve identified those potential cold areas, you can create a plan to start making your home more energy efficient.

For a number of homeowners, the front door is a major source of energy loss. One easy and attractive solution to this is the addition of an energy-efficient storm door. In additional to enhancing the curb appeal and entry way of your home, a storm door can also keep energy bills lower when it comes to extreme hot or cold weather. This is particularly true when the door contains foam-core insulation.

Because the exterior of your home is the first thing that people see, it’s always a wise idea to keep your home’s curb appeal in mind. That’s why we view the addition of a storm door as the perfect way to frame an entry way and announce a welcome to all who pass by. Continental Siding offers a range of storm doors that can be customized for a variety of home styles.

All of our seven classic storm door designs feature airtight door seals, high-quality thresholds and jambs, spring-loaded hinges and rugged construction. You only need to choose the hardware, color and door options. Each of these elements offer our customers beauty and a product that’s virtually free from maintenance. All doors feature positive locking systems to protect your family’s home from unwelcome guests.

Additional Benefits of a Storm Door Addition to your Home

Security – From a basic perspective, storm doors add another layer of protection between you and the outside world. Depending on the model of the storm door, there are also options with bars, glass and additional locks for added measures of safety.

Energy Efficiency – In the Midwest, the weather can go from hot, hot to really cold very quickly. With that in mind, you’ll want to keep the interior of your house at a comfortable level no matter the weather outside. A storm door adds another layer of insulation to your home so the carefully heated or cooled airs stays inside where you want it.

Weather Barrier – The elements of rain, sun, sleet and snow can give your front door a beating. The protection provided by a storm door is a good way to make your front door investment last longer.

Two-for-One Door – A storm door with a retractable screen is a great way to allow additional light and fresh air into the room, minus the bugs. When the weather cools down, you just need to raise the glass.
