Why It’s Important to Choose a Well-Insulated Door

Doors can be some of the most-used, and therefore most frequently damaged, parts of your home. Over the years, sometimes it becomes necessary to replace them. There are many reasons, aesthetic and practical, why you may need to replace a door.

When to Replace a Door

Energy Bill

A practical reason to replace a door is a financial one. Doors can be a huge drain on your budget via the energy bill. Whether you are trying to keep the air-conditioning in, or the frigid winter out, a drafty door can undermine the earnest efforts of your HVAC system.

Poor Insulation

If the inside surface of your door feels cool when it’s cold out and hot when it’s hot out, it is likely that your door is not well-insulated. One of the prime reasons to replace a door is that it’s not serving its intended function as a barrier. Talk with your contractor to make sure the replacement door you buy is well-insulated.

Home Value

If you’re selling your home, it is important that your doors be in good condition. Doors are one of the first things a potential buyer will notice about the place. If your doors look too worn or beat-up, or if they slam easily, it can be very off-putting to potential buyers. On the other hand, if your doors are looking great and in good condition, it lets prospective buyers know that their new home was well cared-for.
