UPVC Front Doors Could Result In Significant Savings For The Average Household

The average household could save hundreds of pounds every year by switching to UPVC exterior doors, as a result of their greater energy efficient properties, according to industry think-tank BuyDoor.net.

Edinburgh, UK, 1 March 2008 ( Earthtoys ) -- The average household in the UK could save hundreds of pounds annually simply by changing their front door, according to a study into exterior door insulation released by industry watchdog BuyDoor.net.


As a more energy efficient alternative to traditional doors, UPVC doorways are better at insulating heat than wood, according to the findings of the study, which could give rise to a tangibly lower energy bill over the course of a year for the average UK household.

Max Scott, of BuyDoor.net, said that the duel-benefits of saving money and helping protect the environment would make the switch a no-brainer over the coming decade.

"People don't realise just how much of an impact energy efficiency can have on their household heating bill. Simply by using a more heavily insulated UPVC door, homeowners could find themselves saving hundreds every year on unnecessary, wasted heating. The tide is turning however, and our report predicts that within the next ten years the prevalence of UPVC doors will almost quadruple."

UPVC doorways are designed to be more insulating and rely on modern design techniques to keep homes warmer for longer, as compared to traditional wooden exterior doors.
