Sunlight can brighten up your home, improve your mood, and reduce your energy bills by making you less dependent on artificial light. One of the best ways to get more sunlight into your home is through our beautiful gliding patio doors in Portland. Renewal by Andersen® of Portland offers sliding patio doors with a sleek frame and large glass area for your home. This can flood your interior with light, while keeping temperatures cool.
The Many Benefits of Sunlight
Studies show that sunlight can improve productivity, enhance creativity, and improve people’s moods. Sunlight promotes the production of serotonin. This is a hormone linked to boosting mood and helping person feel focused and calm. Sunlight can also help regulate a person’s circadian rhythm, leading to better sleep. Using more natural light in your home can also save money. Rely on sunlight instead of electrical lights during the day. Lastly, it can make your interior more beautiful by bringing out an object’s true colors.
Factors When Choosing Your Patio Door
As an expert in Portland door installation, we recommend that you choose your door type carefully depending on how much you want to utilize sunlight. For instance, our sliding contemporary patio doors typically have narrow frames to provide you with as much sunlight as possible. Nonetheless, our sliding French door’s grille design is also appealing because of the patterns of light and shadow it creates.
When choosing your new patio door, you also need to think about which glass package you want to use. If excessive glare and heat gain is a concern, go for our High-Performance™ Low-E4® Sun™ glass. If you want to maximize energy efficiency, then go for our High-Performance Low-E4 SmartSun™ glass instead. Otherwise, our standard High-Performance Low-E4 will work well for your home. Each of our glass packages can save you up to 25% on your home’s energy bills depending on your home’s location and structure.
In addition to patio doors, we can install energy-efficient replacement windows in Wilsonville and the surrounding areas.
