Winter or Summer? Is there a better time to add a Storm Door…

A storm door is a door that is installed outside of an exterior door.  It can add to the beauty of your home and help you save on energy costs during the winter or summer in Las Vegas.  Using a storm door makes so much sense, especially here in southern Nevada.   There are so many days in the spring and fall when we do not need to use our air conditioning and a storm door could help the conditions inside your home during those months as well.   All you need to do to get fresh air into the home is to open the front door, and let the air flow through the storm door.

Most storm doors can be interchangeable too, where the door can easily be converted to screen for the summer months and glass for the winter.  Storm doors can also be locked for safety purposes.   Storm doors are an easy, low-cost home improvement.  So think about adding a storm door, and improve the look of your home while increasing your energy savings!

Preparing For Winter…in the Desert

Save on energy costs during the winter here in Las Vegas and all throughout Southern Nevada by replacing old doors on your home. Front doors, back doors, or even a side access door to your garage can be a big energy waster. Keeping the cold air out and the warm air in during the winter months helps to keep the heating bills down too.  With the rising cost of energy these days every penny of savings goes a long way in making Southern Nevada and Las Vegas a ‘Greener’ place to live.

Replacing old doors also saves money and energy during the summer months which here in Las Vegas can average 95 to 105 degrees for months. Also, the extreme desert heat we have here in the southwest causes the rubber around the doors to crack and peel. Replacing that also helps save on energy. Replacing the door to keep the heat out and the cool air in is a good idea and also a ‘Green’ idea. So replace that door with an energy efficient one, and improve the look of your home while increasing your energy savings!
