Bring Down Heating Costs with Thermally-Broken Steel Doors and Windows

a house in the cold winter season


If you’re looking to have your home or office renovated, then thermally-broken steel doors and windows should be on the top of your list. With their form and functional design, they outperform all other metals by a mile and have a lot to offer in the aesthetic department too. So without further ado, let’s delve into this advanced product to learn what it is and how you can benefit from it.

What is Thermally-Broken Steel?

Doors and windows made of thermally-broken steel are designed to include a layer of insulation like carbon in the middle with steel surrounding it. With the two pieces of steel not touching each other and the carbon acting as a thermal break, and conduction does not happen. This means that if cold or hot energy makes contact with the outside metal, it will dissipate before reaching the interior one.

So why is this product the best choice for your property? How does the combination of steel and carbon can benefit you? Let’s find out.

High Thermal Performance

With thermally-broken steel fitted in your house, commercial building or office space, thermal transmission can be reduced significantly. Not only do they resist heat loss but also unwanted heat gain. This means that during summers, the house doesn’t heat up due to the outside weather, and the cooling effect of air conditioners is retained better. Similarly, during winters, the heat from radiators doesn’t escape the house, keeping your home nice and toasty.

Brings Down Energy Costs

Due to their high thermal performance, you can actually cut down on energy costs. By retaining or resisting heat, your property is at a more comfortable and ideal temperature, thus lowering dependency on radiators and ACs, which can be costly to run. Moreover, steel doors and windows increase the visible transmittance of daylight saving homeowners money spent on artificial lighting.

Save on Repair Costs

Non-insulated doors and windows allow condensation to build up, which damages the finish and material during summer. Meanwhile, in the winters, the condensation freezes up, and can break the area around your windows as it melts. This calls for a lot of care and maintenance, which puts additional strain on your wallet. The good news is that thermally-broken steel can help you avoid repairs as they minimize condensation considerably.

Versatility of Steel

Versatility is another perk of steel doors and windows. For instance, bi-fold door design can be used inside the house as factory-style room dividers or as steel patio doors. Steel sliding doors, pivot doors and French doors are popular choices for patio entry doors. Front doors can also be fitted with thermally broken steel, and these come in both geometric patterns and with intricate scrollwork.
