Front doors which let in drafts are obviously not energy efficient. When the door is closed, one should not see light coming in around the door frame and threshold. If light is found shining in, it’s likely that other undesirable things can get in such as drafts, water, insects and even rodents.
Updating the weather stripping may help the problem temporarily and may be something that is replaced periodically. However, if you are encountering drafts as an ongoing issue, it’s probably time to replace your front door.
New energy-efficient doors can help maintain more comfortable indoor temperatures and also reduce your cooling and heating costs throughout the extreme seasons. The upfront cost of replacing a front door will save you money in the long-term as you save month to month on energy expenses.
