Are Storm Doors Energy Efficient?

storm doors

The purpose of a storm door is to protect the front entry from bad weather. And they do that very well, thanks to their durable, double-strength design. But you might be wondering if storm doors have any value as far as energy efficiency goes. The answer is yes – storm doors from Simple Home Improvement are actually very energy-efficient and can help keep your house comfortable all year round.

Storm Door Efficiency Features

While storm doors come in a variety of styles, many of them feature screens to allow ventilation and visibility. The screens are made from high-quality fiberglass and allow refreshing breezes into the home that can minimize air conditioning use when temperatures are high.

To make the doors as energy-efficient as possible, Low-E safety glass is used in most cases. Low-E glass has a thin, transparent coating that reflects heat. This helps reduce the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light coming through the door. At the same time, it also reflects the interior temperature of the house back inside. This is a wonderful innovation because the air tends to escape through doors and windows. As it escapes, your home’s furnace or air conditioner has to work harder to maintain the desired temperature, driving up energy bills in the process.

In addition, our storm doors are also available with energy-efficient polyurethane insulation to save even more. Contact Simple Home Improvements to ask about all of our energy-efficient storm door styles.
