Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) October 24, 2012
With the upcoming holiday season also comes cooler weather in Florida. Jacksonville-based Heckard's Door Specialties encourages consumers to take advantage of the still warm weather to upgrade their doors rather than waiting till December or January. And since many homeowners want their homes to be in the best shape possible for holiday entertaining, replacing old and inefficient doors is one step in the right direction.
Heckard's Door Specialties's representatives cite a recent report in Forbes Magazine as further motivation to consider door replacement as soon as possible. According to the report, government officials are currently working on comprehensive plans to encourage owners of existing homes to install energy-efficient features equal to what new home builders are already required to do. According to the report, some 73% of homeowners, just in California alone, are living in homes that don't meet federal standards for energy efficiency.
Part of those federal standards have to do with energy-efficient exterior doors. By replacing old and inefficient doors with new ones, homeowners will see energy savings by not allowing heat to escape in the winter while retaining cool air in the summer. Drafts around doors are one of the major culprits leading to energy inefficiency in America's homes.
Heckard's Door Specialties, a member of the Better Business Bureau, is available to help by offering the most energy-efficient doors and glass in the Jacksonville area. The company also provides solutions for patios, as well as French doors, interior doors for rooms and closets and a variety of decorative glass options.
