Energy Efficient Front & Back Doors
As we are encouraged to become more environmentally friendly, there are many ways of being kinder to the planet and some of the most important ways, so we are told, are by making our homes more energy efficient.

Allowing heat to escape from our houses or allowing cold air in is one of the biggest ways that homes are classed as being inefficient. Properly working and maintained boilers and heating appliances, well fitted and cared for windows and energy efficient doors are some of the key factors which help to both keep our lives and homes as ecologically friendly as possible.
These measures can also, however, save the homeowner money on utility bills and heating costs. In addition a seemingly small improvement such as the installation of an energy efficient door can add value to a home and give it a higher energy rating, making it easier to sell.
When searching for an energy efficient door as a replacement for the existing choice, there are a number of options that suppliers can add to their selection to help with the energy conservation process.
Whilst door sweeps, or draft dodgers, are a feature that can either be installed by the consumer or the installer, many energy efficient doors come with in-built functions that help preserve internal heat and keep the more adverse weather elements out. These can include draught proofing, which can be installed to the frame as a door is fitted, double or triple glaze options for any and all glass panels and light reflective surfaces which can help reflect heat and light back into the room rather than allowing it to escape.
As national and world leaders work together to publicise the need for energy efficiency and compensate efforts made by businesses and homes who make efforts towards reducing their carbon footprints, the UK Government as well as local councils throughout the country have a number of incentive schemes to reward and repay efforts and financial outlay.
Whilst many of these schemes are available for those home and business owners that elect to have solar panels, water filtration systems and other expensive and dramatic changes to the home, there are movements towards rewarding and reimbursing home owners who introduce small changes such as Energy Efficient Doors and windows.
