Now that it’s getting colder, its time to start thinking about how you’re going to efficiently heat your home this year. For many of us, we’ve replaced windows, installed new insulation, made roof repairs, or even replaced our entire HVAC unit in an effort to heat the home better this winter. However, did you know that one of the main causes of stubborn drafts and inefficient home heating is your own front door?

In order to prevent money from walking out the door, here are a few warning signs that are a good indication that it’s time to replace those storm doors.

Replacement Door Service Signs

  1. Locking Issues. Have you noticed that you’re having issues opening, closing, or locking your front door lately? This is due to a fluctuation in temperature that has essentially warped the material. During cold weather, your door expands; in warm weather, it contracts. These changes then make it so your door no longer fits in it’s frame.
  2. Cracks and Drafts. Even the smallest cracks can become major issues down the road — especially in cold, rainy or snowy weather. Cracks can also let in insects such as ants and bees which lead to a more expensive fix. Drafts can easily be felt when it’s cold and you stand in front of your closed door.
  3. Increased Energy Bills. We know that there are dozens of reasons why your energy bill might be higher during the Fall and Winter months, but if you’ve already made energy efficient updates to your home in the past few years – minus a door replacement — then chances are this is the root cause of a higher bill.
