All Soft-Lite sliding doors are designed for durability, longevity, energy efficiency, and beauty. They will enhance a home from every angle, inside and out. In addition, the energy-saving features available with Soft-Lite’s two distinct product lines have the potential to help save a substantial amount of money on heating and cooling costs. This is an important, if often-overlooked, aspect of sliding doors − because of the large glass area, costly air infiltration is almost inevitable unless steps are taken to prevent it.
How do precision-manufactured Soft-Lite sliding doors address the potential for heat transfer related to air infiltration? Before answering that, it’s important to understand how heat transfer can affect your monthly heating or cooling bill. A home’s heating and cooling system is designed to maintain a constant temperature. To do so, it turns on or off as necessary, when the thermostat detects temperature changes. The harder a heating and cooling system is forced to work, the more energy is used, and the more it costs every month.
One of the best ways to ensure a solid return on investment as a homeowner is to invest in energy efficient products. Energy efficiency ultimately puts dollars back into a homeowner’s pocket in the form of lower energy bills, improved insulation, and increased home value. Energy efficiency is also a major selling point for homeowners potentially looking to sell their home down the line. With that being said, here are some of the top energy efficient home improvement projects to consider investing in today.
