Kansas Climate Recommendations
Scorching summer heat, dangerous storms, extreme wind chills — Kansas sees it all. Entry doors can help keep your home comfortable in the face of all these elements if you choose these options to upgrade your weather protection. .
Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Low-E insulating glass on doors and sidelights can help keep your home more comfortable and your energy costs down.
For better efficiency and lower heating and cooling costs in the Kansas climate, choose glass with SHGC and U-values of 0.3 or lower on your entry doors. The northernmost reaches of the state would benefit from a higher SHGC due to the colder temps.
Steel and fiberglass entry doors are low-maintenance options that can help stand up to all kinds of weather. These materials have long-lasting finishes to help resist wear from the sun and extreme temps.
