Fitting a composite door is not just a good way to improve the look of a property, it will also help to make your home more energy efficient.
Rising energy prices are one of the major problems facing households in the UK. Government statistics show that the average annual combined gas and electricity bill increased by £400 (45%) to £1,279 between 2007 and 2012.
As the Big 6 energy providers implemented further price rises in the early months of 2013, there is no sign of the pressure easing in the foreseeable future. With that in mind, it makes sense to look at how you can cut your energy usage.
One of the best ways to do it is to make energy-efficient home improvements that reduce the amount of heat that escapes from your home. Any money spent on this type of work will cut your energy bills for years to come and eventually more than pay for itself, as well as help to rid your home of draughts and cold spots.
Among the best home improvements you can make is to install a new composite door. Choose the right one and you can expect to feel the benefit straight away, as well as see it reflected in your heating bills.
At Composite Doors Yorkshire, we manufacture and install some of the most energy efficient doors available. They consist of a Solidor solid hardwood timber core and robust thermo plastic skins, which combine to form 48mm thickness doors that are significantly better at preventing heat loss than traditional wooden doors.
Our doors are fitted with low emissivity (Low-E) Pilkington K Glass that reflects heat back indoors, but lets in natural heat from the sun. We also use Kömmerling profile systems for ultra-secure steel door frames, which feature a 5 chambered design for better thermal performance.
Composite Doors Yorkshire can make composite front doors, French doors and stable doors in a range of classic and contemporary styles, all of which are available in 17 colours.
