Nowadays, homeowners are looking for various ways to improve energy efficiency on their properties. This can be accomplished in a number of ways such as a roof replacement, installing new windows and even installing new siding. However, there are some who say that there is another way you can increase your home’s energy efficiency: door replacements.

Here, door replacement and roofing contractor ARCH Exteriors, LLC reveals whether or not a door replacement project can improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Can Replacing a Door Improve a Home’s Energy Efficiency?
Believe it or not, a door replacement project can improve a home’s energy efficiency, especially if you choose a quality door. When looking for a door that can improve your home’s energy efficiency, there are a few things you need to look for, starting with the ENERGY STAR® label, which is only allowed on door products that have met standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Aside from the ENERGY STAR label, homeowners should also look for the door’s R-value to see just how energy-efficient it is. Experts recommend that you purchase a door that has an R-value ranging from R-5 to R-6, as these are ratings for good insulative abilities. Pay attention to the door’s brand as well because some brands employ more energy-efficient technologies compared to others.
