If you read our earlier post, you have already learned about the benefits of storm doors for homes in the Minneapolis area, but there are the added perks to having storm doors on your Minnesota home when the cold weather comes rolling around.

Benefits That Come with Storm Doors for Twin Cities Homes

When the winter comes rolling around, you want to make sure that you are choosing the storm door for the right reasons. Here are a few benefits that come from having a storm door on your home when it is cold.

  • A storm door creates a pocket of air between the storm and the exterior door. This functions as an added layer of insulation to provide more comfort and protection where it is needed most.
  • You do not have to worry about air leaks from the exterior door. That means no cold air coming in, no warm air leaking out.
  • You can protect your main entry doors from the outside elements such as wind, ice, snow and more. This is especially important if your exterior doors are wood. Minnesota winters can be harsh on wood doors.
