Energy Saving Patio Doors with Retractable Screens

Patio Doors That Don’t Bug You


Summer is just around the corner, which means it is a good time to start implementing energy saving tactics that will help you save on costs once the scorchers arrive. One cost effective ways to save energy is to invest in windows and patio doors with retractable screens. These are specifically designed to increase airflow while providing shaded, filtered light – the perfect balance to decrease energy use.


Benefits are extremely favorable for both aesthetic reasons and your pocket, which is why we have put together some helpful guidelines to determine which type of energy efficient option might be right for your next home remodel:


§  Bi-Fold Windows and Patio Doors: These innovative windows and doors have the ability to expand your lifestyle by blending the out with the in as they fold away to increase living space. When you add retractable screens to the mix, you have a product that can increase air circulation as well as protect you and your family from pesky insects, letting you enjoy the beauty of the outdoors from the cool comfort of your home.

§  Multi-Slide Patio Doors: Most effective for maximizing your view and admitting daylight, multi-slide patio doors blend the in with the out seamlessly. Since the retractable screens will remain out of sight, you can keep enjoying the view when your screen is tucked away until you are ready to use them.

§   Swinging Patio Doors: Retractable screens can complement even the most custom, high end swinging patio doors, as they can be coyly tucked away in the door’s frame. These beautiful doors provide you with a clear view of the outside or a bug-free indoor haven without losing the benefit of the summer breeze.
