Energy-efficient doors can not only save you money but make your home a much more comfortable place to live. Many manufacturing companies are creating high-quality products that look beautiful without compromising on efficiency.

We are factory-trained ProVia dealers and use their products regularly in our door replacements. There are several reasons why energy-efficient doors are your best bet, so let’s dive into them.

Yes, Energy-Efficient Doors Are Important

Reduced Energy Costs

An energy-efficient door affects the heat transfer between the interior and exterior of your home. This means better insulation and reduces your reliance on heating and cooling systems. Who would have thought that something as simple as replacing your door could save you money on your energy bill?

Comfortable Living

Properly insulated doors keep the inside of your home at a comfortable temperature and reduce drafts and hot or cold spots.

Environmental Impact

By reducing your energy consumption, an energy-efficient door contributes to a smaller carbon footprint. Also, many companies focus not only on the energy efficiency of their products but also on their manufacturing practices.

UV Protection

Some doors come with coatings or glazing that provide UV protection. This helps prevent UV rays from entering your home, reducing the potential for furniture, flooring, and other interior items to fade.

Long-Term Savings

While energy-efficient doors may have a higher upfront cost, the long-term savings on energy bills can make them a cost-effective investment.

Resale Value

Energy-efficient features, including doors, can enhance the resale value of your home. Potential buyers often appreciate energy-efficient upgrades, recognizing them as investments that contribute to long-term cost savings.

Noise Reduction

Doors with proper insulation can block out the sound of noisy neighbors or busy roads.

Energy-Efficient Doors With ProVia

ProVia has partnered with ENERGY STAR® since 2002 to ensure they produce energy-efficient, professional-class doors that meet or exceed their certified criteria. ENERGY STAR doors have been independently tested and certified to meet strict energy-efficiency standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Some door brands, like ProVia, are available in top-quality materials like fiberglass, which works well for many home styles and architectural types. Glass can help make your door more energy-efficient. Provia has a wide range of energy-efficient door styles you can customize with decorative glass.

Signs Your Door Isn’t Energy Efficient

Here are some common signs you need to replace your door.

  • Feel for drafts around the edges of the door. If you can sense cold or warm air coming through, your door may not seal properly. 
  • Check for visible gaps between the door and the frame when the door is closed. Gaps can compromise the door’s ability to keep out air and maintain a consistent indoor temperature.
  • Excessive condensation on the interior surface of the door, especially around the edges or glass areas, may mean that the door’s insulation is compromised. This can lead to energy loss and potential moisture-related issues.
  • Your front door shouldn’t have a halo. Close the door during daylight, and check for visible light around the edges. If light is coming through, it means there are gaps that can let in air and compromise energy efficiency.
  • A sudden or consistent increase in energy bills could be a sign that your doors are not effectively insulating your home.
