Depending upon where in the UK you may well have differing views but up here in the North East where the GFD Group are based in less than sunny Hartlepool the summer of 2015 will go down as a bit of a non event. A few nice days but not enough to say it has been a barbeque summer and now the mornings and nights are drawing in as the days get shorter and we wait in anticipation of the leaves falling and the first frost of autumn.

If a non summer was not bad enough we now seem to have every weather forecaster advising that the forthcoming winter is going to be longer and colder than normal – “El Nino” is bigger than normal so watch out UK – the Telegraph wins the prize for the scariest prediction with its article Godzilla El Nino and the BBC is getting in on the act by explaining what El Nino is and what its consequences are in this BBC weather video – it is all very depressing so we all need to be prepared for this –

One obvious household change that can benefit any home is a new front door and at Composite Door Prices we specialise in helping our customers find the perfect door for their property – not from a single manufacturer because we have vetted and selected the best door manufacturers so you do not have to.

There are plenty of Government sponsored campaigns trying to ensure that we all do our bit to prevent Global Warning by ensuring that our homes are adequately insulated although they tend to emphasise loft and cavity wall insulation and new boilers and forget about new doors or windows. A recent Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) study advised that, insulated doors are the third most cost effective energy-saving home improvement that it is possible to make a replacement boiler and cavity wall insulation being the most cost effective savings

 

If you have not renewed your front or back door in recent years maybe now is the time to consider a change –older doors deteriorate with time and are rarely insulated or adequately draft-sealed therefore they become a great source of heat loss, up to 11% of the overall heat loss in a typical home can be lost through a door

 

It is now easier to assess the effectiveness of any new door as they now carry efficiency ratings similar to electrical appliances. A high performance insulated door will have a minimum energy rating of ‘C’ and above Avoid doors with a rating of ‘D’ or below. It is also worth remembering that the rating your door will also be influenced by its glazing content.
