Energy efficiency of doors

Doors are part of the outer casing of the house. Like windows, doors are subject to different types of heat loss: conduction, infiltration and radiation. If you choose to purchase a door there are a few things to consider. Storm doors are very efficient and when installed properly, protect well against wind and rain.

Energy efficiency of doorsInsulated doors are good for those who do not see storm doors as an option. Newer versions of the insulated door are usually made of foam and wood covered with metal. Doorframes are usually made of wood, dressed with metal or vinyl. Glass doors release a great deal of heat and should not be used unless necessary. If necessary, double paned low emissive glass should be used.

Limiting drafts from your doors

Draft proofing can prove to be the most cost effective way to improve your energy loss. Sealing the gaps and holes between your doors and windows will help eliminate moisture problems. It will also remove outside noises, not to mention reduce heat loss. There are a few materials used to draft proof depending on the size of the gap. The two main types of weather proofing are caulking and weather-stripping. Weather-stripping is mostly used to block air-leakage around doors.. To decide on your weather-stripping you must take into consideration; the size of the gap, durability, how easy or difficult the installation will be, as well as the appearance of the actual weather-stripping.

CApply-Caulk-to-Door-Bottomaulking is another common method used to reduce heat loss. It is not permanent and therefore will need to be repaired over time. There is caulking available for interior and for exterior purposes and each should be used for what they were meant for. Using an exterior caulking interiorly can lead to dangerous gases mixing with the air in a living space. This could cause serious problems. When installing the weather stripping or caulking be sure that all installations meet your requirements & follow manufacturer’s instructions.
