Save Energy While You Beautify Your Home
New all weather “storm doors” work in hot or cold climates
With the energy issue back in the headlines, it’s the perfect time to improve the thermal integrity of a home while beautifying an entrance with a new storm door.
Installing a new, energy efficient storm door is one such step that can make a difference in energy bills as well as the appearance of a home’s entrance. A good storm door can cut energy loss through a doorway as much as 45%. The R-value of the door plus the air space created when the door is closed, adds to the insulation of the entrance.
According to the leading manufacturer of storm doors, Larson Manufacturing, a good storm door is actually an all-weather energy management tool.
“Most people think of a storm door as a way to keep out the cold. But a good storm door is just as effective all year,” says June Eng, Marketing Director. “Larson doors are carefully designed and constructed with features for any climate and benefits for any lifestyle.”
A screen with every door allows for the home to be opened for the early morning breezes and cool summer nights of summer. Other features such as magnetic weather stripping and overlapping frames keep the chilly winter wind away from the primary door.
Aside from generating energy savings, a new storm door can also be an inexpensive “make over” for the exterior of your home. An investment of only $150-200 can update the look of the home, let in more light and improve security.
Finding a color and style that will look good on any home should not be a challenge.
“Many people have chosen to upgrade their front entrance and invest in decorative storm doors while others prefer a more traditional approach. Larson has created over 40 different colors and styles to choose from to meet any need,” says Eng. “It’s a beautiful way to save energy all year ‘round.”
Family owned and based in Brookings, South Dakota, Larson Manufacturing has been building storm doors over 50 years.
