Energy efficient doors
Your back and front doors should be keeping you warm and help to reduce energy bills. All of our doors are manufactured to be as energy efficient as possible. This means when you turn your heating on the warm air will be trapped inside. When warm air is kept inside your home, you won’t need to use your heating as often, helping to save you money on your energy bills and lower your carbon emissions.
Do I need planning permission to change my front door?
Replacing a front door will not require planning permission. It is always worth checking with the local authority to double check. Sometimes there are covenants that state what you can and cannot do with the exterior of your home.
What should I look for when buying an exterior door?
When buying a new front or back exterior door you need to look at three key points. The door should be energy efficient so that it keeps any warm air in your home and doesn’t let cold air in. An exterior door should also be secure and safe to give you peace of mind that you are deterring intruders. Aesthetics are the third consideration, exterior doors add character to a home and you will see it every day so make sure you get the colour and style you will be the happiest with.
It’s probably time to replace your exterior door when:
– Energy bills are going up. If you feel a draught from your front door this means it’s not doing its job of keeping the heat in your home this can mean you spend more money on heating.
– You can see gaps around the door. This will also mean that heat is leaking from your home. A door with gaps will also reduce the security of your home.
– The lock isn’t working smoothly. If the lock on the door isn’t locking properly or if it’s hard to lock and unlock this could mean the locking mechanism is compromised. This is a security risk. Replacing this door will secure your home.
– Your door is damaged in some other way. General damage can have a triple effect. It can reduce the security of the door, cost you more in energy bills and make your home look run down.
Are front and back doors the same?
Yes, front and back doors are the same as they require the same features. They both need to provide security for the entrances to your home. They also need to keep the warmth in your home to keep your heating bills under control.
