Can a bifold door regulate your room temperature?
When is comes to those long hot hazy days of summer there is no better feeling than throwing open your doors and filling your home with fresh air and a gentle summer breeze. Opening your door has many benefits;
- your house smells of summer freshness,
- the children go and play out,
- family tea can be eaten on the patio or decking
It is obvious that bifold doors open up fully to let the air into your home. However what happens in your home if you can’t open the doors? Does the extra glass mean that your home gets too hot too quickly?
High quality bifolding doors will come with some featurs that allow you to keep your home at the perfect temperature no matter what the weather. Bifolds that keep you warm and cool are a must.
Glazing for bifold doors
The glass that you choose is very important as it needs to keep you cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. Choose a supplier who can give you a fully sealed unit. Ask for energy efficient double glazing, ensuring that the doors help regulate your room temperature.
Looking for a glazed unit that will keep your home well insulated is imperative. Check with your chosen company that the doors will be right for you.
Blinds or curtains for regulating your room temperature
Integrated blinds or curtains at your doors can offer you privacy from the outside as well as some shade when needed. But how do you choose which is best for you?
Integrated blinds are fully fitted within the glazing of your bifold door and can be a very simple solution. The blinds can be adjusted to allow you to control the amount of light or shade you would like in your room. Encased in the glazing they will keep clean. They will also be away from sticky childish fingers and away from pets that like to scratch.
