Whether you want to wake up to a morning breeze or you’re interested in cutting down on your energy consumption to cool your home during the early summer months, open doors and windows can provide you with a comfortable living temperature. However, while your windows might have built-in screens, there’s a good chance your door does not. That is why a retractable screen door is a great investment.
Why Install a Retractable Screen Door
One of the best ways you can cool down your home is with a cross-breeze. Simply open doors and windows on opposite sides of a room to achieve this. However, leaving your back door open can allow insects and debris into your home. It can also be problematic if you have indoor pets, as they may venture outside. Retractable screen doors allow you to close the screen like a sliding door, letting the breeze in while keeping insects out and pets inside.
Easy to Open and Close
A retractable screen door works exactly like a sliding door. You slide it open when you want to enjoy the breeze, and you slide it closed when you’re done. The retractable screen comes with a metal housing unit that it slides into when not in use, becoming completely invisible. This not only protects it from possible damage, but it also reduces the amount of space it requires. The housing units come in a variety of colors to blend seamlessly with your exterior design.
A retractable screen door is an affordable option that will help improve your level of comfort inside the house, while also reducing the amount of money you pay to cool your home because you’re A/C unit will not need to run as often with a cool breeze flowing through. Retractable screen doors can fit nearly any opening, are great for in swing and out swing doors and can also be fitted to French doors.
