Are Storm Doors Energy Efficient?
If you’re looking into new doors for your New England home, you’re likely hoping to add an extra layer of protection against the elements. An entry door system protects your home’s exterior doors against climate-related wear and tear while also helping to keep out heavy rains, wind-blown dirt and debris, and more. They can also improve security and curb appeal, and when outfitted with a screen panel, they can allow a cool breeze to enter your home while keeping insects and leaves out. What you might not realize, however, is that storm doors can play an important role in your home’s thermal performance.
Can a Storm Door Help You Save on Energy Costs?
There are a couple of ways that storm doors can help with energy savings. Their main benefit is that they can help prevent air leaks. This is important if your exterior door’s weatherstripping isn’t doing a great job, or if the door is warped and doesn’t close as tightly as it used to. A storm door with a tight seal should completely eliminate air leaks that can force your HVAC system to work overtime.
The second benefit of storm doors is that they can help reduce heat transfer by providing an extra layer of insulation. And, if your storm doors meets certain standards, you could qualify for a tax credit designed to encourage the purchase of energy-efficient products.
