Best Energy Efficient Doors

It’s the beginning of January – we won’t be seeing warm weather in the Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia area for a few more months, so it’s more important than ever to make sure your doors are energy efficient. Not only will they make your home more comfortable, but they can also help lower your energy bills!

Importance of Energy Efficient Doors

The obvious benefit of having energy efficient doors is higher energy savings, but there are a number of benefits energy efficient doors offer in addition to this:

Comfortable environment – energy efficient doors will make your home more comfortable, hands down. If your doors aren’t airtight, your home will be drafty, and air can more easily escape out and leak in. What does this mean? A home that is warmer in the summer and colder in the winter – not ideal situations!

Tax credits – it gets even better than reduced energy bills and a more comfortable home! Many energy efficient doors are ENERGY STAR rated, and purchasing them makes you eligible for tax credits. In some cases, you can get a tax credit of up to 30 percent of the cost of the door!

Mold control – homes with doors that aren’t energy efficient tend to have more mold growth in these areas. Mold and mildew often grow on the frames of doors that aren’t airtight (and energy efficient).

Enhanced appearance – many energy efficient ENERGY STAR doors are attractive and can enhance the appearance of your home, on both the inside and outside. If you’ve had your doors forever and you’ve found mold is starting to develop around the frames, it’s time for a replacement!
