Shops are probably already gearing up for the Boxing Day sales, you’ve opened a few doors on your calendar (or your dog has) and you’ve had to invest in a de-scraper for your car. This can only mean one thing. Winter is here.
Amongst all the chocolate and dreams of snow, it’s hard to find the time to worry about keeping your home warm. But with a composite door it’s easy.
Retain heat with a composite door
It’s easy to underestimate doors unless they reveal chocolate. Doors on your property just let you in and out of your property don’t they? Wrong.
They can significantly help to reduce draughts and weatherproof your home, resulting in a warmer living environment and reduced heating bills. So no more worries about coming downstairs to an ice-box like hallway this Winter!
Composite doors (those that are made up of one or more material) generally combine the benefits of timber and uPVC. This results in naturally good insulation and strength from wood, and the ease of maintenance and cost-effectiveness from uPVC.
Year round energy performance
In Winter, it’s doubtful that you are rushing to escape the warm confines of your home. Composite doors stop vital heat escaping too. The thermal benefits of timber and the modern design of uPVC means that far more heat is retained within the core of the door, helping to keep your hallway or living space insulated.
If you want a composite door with a stylish decorative glass panel, it’s easy to maintain energy performance with different glazing options. Installed by reputable tradesmen, effectively sealed glazed panels can add warmth and style to your home.
