What Are the Benefits of Storm Doors?
Adding a storm door is often well worth the money that you’ll spend. Not only does it maximize both the look and function of your home, but it is incredibly easy to install, requires little maintenance, and will last for years to come. If you have not already installed a storm door for your South Cook County, IL or Lake County, IN home, here are some benefits that you should consider:
Improved Energy Efficiency
Perhaps the most tempting reason to get a storm door is that it often improves a home’s energy efficiency, thereby reducing wasted heat/cold air and saving a homeowner money. This is especially true if your existing door is old, but in good condition, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Most homeowners do not realize that heat loss is preventable – with good insulation and an efficient storm door, it absolutely is.
Protection of a Main Door
Another benefit of storm doors is that they provide protection for main entryway doors from the elements, like wind, debris, moisture, and sun. Keep in mind, however, that if your main entryway door gets more than a few hours of sunlight per day, a storm door may not be for you; too much sun can trap heat, resulting in damage to your front door.
More Home Security
Did you know that adding a storm door to your house can make your home more secure? This is because adding a storm door gives you yet one more locking mechanism that can be used to keep intruders out. Further, if you do not have a way to see who is outside when your door is knocked or your doorbell is rung, a storm door provides you with the opportunity to open your front door to see who is outside while still enjoying the protections of a locked door. This can help to keep you and your family safe.
