As a mom of three children, five if you’re including my husband and our Golden Retriever Winston, simplicity is the key to my heart. Living in the East Coast definitely entails cold winters, rainy springs and unpredictable summers, but this fall and winter we just couldn’t seem to get our home warm enough.
After hearing my children constantly complain about how cold our home was and then seeing my husband walk around the kitchen with a scarf on, I decided to take matters into my own hands. From the beginning of October to the beginning of December our utilities bill was through the roof since our heat never seemed to be warm enough. A friend of mine suggested that I check our front door since she had a similar issue in her home, which resulted in the front door having cracks all along the sides of it.
I had a repair man come out and take a look and it turns out that my friend was right! Our main entry door had cracks all along its sides, which equated to the cool temperatures in my home. After researching the issue, I learned that front doors are one of the main places for air leakage in the home.
The solution to our issue was a storm door, which would create both a seal and protect the main entry door of our home. Main entry doors are very expensive to both repair and replace, but a storm door would provide this extra protection in addition to our main entry door.
Storm doors are made out of the highest quality materials, which can endure both time and weather conditions. Storm doors keep elements from outside from coming inside, which is exactly what I need.
I can’t begin to tell you the difference our storm door has made in our home. Now we have lower utility bills, less complaining, and a warmer atmosphere.
