Autumn is a perfect time to replace your inefficient doors and windows with custom built timber doors and windows. The climate in the Perth area can be pretty extreme. When summer comes, it costs a lot to air condition a home. If you have doors and windows built with aluminium or a similar material, you are probably losing a lot of money due to heat transfer.
The Problem with Aluminium and Similar Materials
There are two problems with aluminium doors and windows, both of which can allow the summer heat to flow into your home. The first is that aluminium doors and windows can eventually become ill-fitting.
Whether it’s wear, tear, age or all three, aluminium doors seem to change their shape and allow air from the outdoors to flow into your home. It might not seem like a lot, but it is coming into your home all day for as long as it is hot. This makes your air conditioner work harder and longer to cool your home.
The other problem is heat transfer. When there is a difference in the temperature outside your house and the temperature inside your house, aluminium tends to allow heat to transfer from the warmer area to the cooler area. If you are trying to air condition your home, heat from the outdoors is being transferred into your home by your aluminium door or window frame.
Once again, it might not seem like a lot, but it adds up over a day, a month or an entire summer. In the winter, the same thing happens but it transfers the heat out of your home and into the cold outside. The process is the same; the heat just goes in a different direction.
Timber to the Rescue
Timber is a natural insulator. Instead of transferring heat to and from your home, it helps your home stay at the temperature you want while saving you money on heating and cooling costs. Unlike other materials, timber can be made to fit snugly as a door, a door frame or a window frame. It doesn’t become deformed and create holes or cracks that let hot or cold air come into your home.
Not only does it stand firm on the edges, it doesn’t transfer heat. Timber is nature’s great insulator. It helps your home retain the temperature you desire. It keeps heat from transferring in or out of your home. Even in smaller amounts like the frames on windows or bifold doors, timber helps your home withstand the Perth climate and keep you comfortable.
