Frequently Asked Colorado Springs Door Repair Questions
How Can Door Repair Services Result in Energy Savings?
If you've got a door that is letting in air drafts and compromising your home's energy efficiency, Colorado Springs door repair can absolutely increase energy savings. Thermal energy naturally moves to a colder area from a warmer place. That means in winter when it's cold outside, heat from your furnace escapes outdoors. But in summer when your air conditioner is on, solar heat enters your house and warms it up. Any gap in your house exterior like vents, windows and yes, doors are weak points that allow heat transfer to occur, and then energy efficiency gets lower the worse their condition is.
The process of heat transfer changes the temperature in your building, forcing your HVAC system to operate for longer periods of time to make up for the altered temperature. Because your HVAC system needs to use so much energy to keep your home at the temperature you have set on your thermostat, the additional operation time caused by an inefficient entryway can significantly increase the energy charges on your utility bill. Getting it back in energy-efficient condition with Colorado Springs door repair so it can more easily prevent heat transfer will save you a noticeable amount on your monthly bills.
Why Are Water Droplets Trapped Between the Panes on My Entryway Window?
If you've got the type of exterior entryway that features a window, you may have noticed that the once-clear glass now has a foggy or misty appearance that is being caused by condensation or water droplets trapped between the double panes of glass. This is a bad sign, and not just because it ruins the view out your entryway window. It means the seal around the edge of the insulated glass unit (IGU) has broken, letting in moisture and seriously compromising the energy efficiency of your entry. If this happens to a normal window, glass replacement is sometimes the right answer. But that's not going to work for a window that is set in a door. In this situation, a complete entryway replacement is a better option than Colorado Springs door repair.
How Long Does Colorado Springs Door Repair Take?
The length of time it will take really depends on the nature of the problem and whether it's an interior or exterior entry, but in general it typically only takes our experienced handyman team a couple of hours or possibly less to get your entryway back in proper condition again.
Does Mesh Tape Work for Screen Door Repair?
Breathable screen door repair tape is similar to duct tape, but it's made of mesh material so you can put it over a rip or hole in your door's mesh and block out insects while still allowing for the full flow of fresh air. Whether or not an amateur screen door repair tape fix will actually produce satisfactory results depends on factors such as the brand of tape and how powerful the adhesive is, but in the end, most homeowners find that it's only a temporary solution that will likely need repeated reapplications until the screen is eventually replaced altogether. Replacing a screen can be a challenge, but it's no problem for our experienced Colorado Springs handyman team.
