Heritage has always been dedicated to to incorporating energy-conscious design into its products. Frames are made of between 30% and 40% recycled aluminum. In addition, many of the doors are available with a thermally broken option. This refers to the process of separating the frame into two separate interior and exterior pieces joined with a less conductive material between them. The result is a reduction in the transfer of temperature.
A thermally broken door helps reduce or prevent the flow of thermal energy in a hot climate. These energy efficient doors help to reduce the cooling load on air conditioning units, reducing the carbon footprint as well. An added benefit to a thermally broken door is that it dampens vibrations, which serves to reduce the transmission of sound, allowing a home or office to be that much quieter.
Glass doors can really bring the beauty of the landscape home. To see a selection of glass doors in Phoenix AZ that save energy, save money, and preserve the splendor of the view, visit the Heritage gallery at http://www.heritagewindows.com.
