During the winter months a lot of homes around the country suffer from drafts and many homeowners struggle to establish exactly where these drafts are emanating from. The windows in the home can often be a common area where the outside elements creep through, but one area which is often not thought about is where the doors stand.
Many people consider timber front and back doors as being indestructible and offering them the amount of allowing cold air to filter through to kitchen or home entrances. If living room doors are also open then it means the cold air can also then start to invade that area of the home, the area in which we most rely on to be warm as this is where most people will spend their time when present in their home. When it gets cold in the living room what is the first thing most people will resort to doing? Turning up the heating of course.
Both uPVC windows and uPVC doors can reduce your reliance on your heating systems and the chance of drafts getting into the home via these outlets is virtually impossible. Their uPVC construction means that they are sealed tight to frames and the most reliable protector against any sort of weather conditions.
As uPVC windows are made up of double glazing it means that they are energy efficient and can help reduce your carbon footprint, something which the government is urging us all to contribute towards. uPVC doors need not be just made up of plain glass, there are decorative options you can choose from so that your glazing need not be boring.
So it is out with the old and with the new. Get those old wooden timber window and door frames replaced with their more reliable modern day equivalents and you can be assured of a warm household 365 days a year.
