There’s nothing like a nice hot summer’s day that you can enjoy outdoors in the comfort of your own backyard. Especially if you’re cooking up a barbeque or hosting a backyard party, there are a lot of ways to enjoy your own home without even having to go anywhere. But if you’re finding that the space is lacking, you can significantly improve your backyard this summer by installing new sliding doors that go out onto a patio or deck. It’s a great way to get access to the outdoors quickly and easily, as well as let an ample amount of light into your home and get a great view of the outdoors.
That being said, there are some summer days where it might be better to stay in. When the heat becomes unbearable, many people would rather stay home and enjoy the comfort of their air conditioner. In fact, in 2018 there were periods where the temperatures were so high in the Greater Toronto Area that there were extended heat warnings advising people to not go out and to make sure that they were hydrated.
But if you’re home isn’t properly insulated, you can experience a significant amount of heat gain where your air-conditioned air is being sucked outside and being replaced with hot air. This can happen with older window units that have either been damaged over time or just aren’t as energy efficient as newer models. Did you know that heat loss and gain through a home’s windows are responsible for 25% to 30% of residential heating and cooling energy use? When you add up the numbers, that’s a lot of money lost to energy consumption that could have been saved with more energy-efficient windows.
