For some homeowners, glass doors may not seem to be a practical option. You may have security concerns regarding how it will affect the energy efficiency of your home. Furthermore, you may think a new patio door is out of reach in terms of financing. Still, they can make an excellent addition to your home. And they’re much more affordable than you might think.
For starters, nothing can beat the sleek and contemporary design, as well as the convenience that comes with installing new patio doors. What’s more, today’s patio door options have advanced in terms of functionality and design. They offer several innovative features like thermal insulation and motorized blinds. If you were having doubts about getting new patio doors, here are a few admirable features to consider.
Benefits of New Patio Doors
Without a doubt, glass adds a touch of beauty to any home. Glass patio doors seamlessly blend the indoors with the outdoors. Take advantage of your backyard or city view all year by visually bringing the outdoors in.
Adds More Light to the House
Having a patio door can make an enormous difference in your mood. These large glass panes allow so much natural light that you may never need to switch the lights on during the day. Subsequently, this cuts down on your monthly bills while at the same time making your home a more welcoming and inviting space.
Gives an Illusion of More Space
Glass doors create an optical illusion of more space and will open up the room.
Go for Double-Pane Glass
With double-pane glass, you will minimize your heating bills in winter and keep the air-conditioning expenses low during summer.
Look for Low-E Glass
When it comes to patio doors, the type of glass you choose is important. It’s estimated that 70 percent of energy loss occurs through the windows and doors in your home. Since patio doors are mostly glass, energy efficiency is important. Low-E glass cuts down on the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that comes through. Low-E glass patio doors have an incredibly thin and transparent coating that reflects heat. This coating helps keep the temperature consistent in your home.
