The Benefits of Bifold Doors During the Winter

It seems like Christmas is right around the corner and the cold weather is certainly setting in. With the days becoming shorter and the weather turning cooler, I thought it offered me the perfect opportunity to write about the benefits of bifold doors during the coldest months of the year.

Bifold Doors with Sash Windows London Ltd

We don’t just supply and install sash windows, we also provide customers with seamless bifold doors that improve the aesthetics and accessibility of their home. Bifold doors are becoming increasingly popular for their ease-of-use, bespoke opening sizes and door designs that add flexibility and style to the design of any home. Bifold doors are the perfect solution for people wanting to connect the interior of their home to the exterior in a seamless, accessible design.

Bifold doors are often marketed as a popular asset during the summer months, whilst the benefits of bifold doors during the winter are seemingly overlooked. Of course, bifold doors do have numerous benefits during the summer months (which we will discuss in another article) but they are also extremely beneficial during the winter. So, let’s take a look at the unexplored benefits of bifold doors during the winter.

Increased Light Saturation


In the UK, the winter months can be dark, cold and dingy, making many of us shrink into Seasonal Affective Disorder (where our moods are affected by the changing of the seasons). However, one of the most helpful ways to beat those common ‘winter blues’ is by installing bifold doors as these can help ensure your home receives increased light saturation. For increased light saturation, bifold doors are one of the most popular solutions as they include large floor-to-ceiling areas of glazing that allows for plenty of natural light to enter a room.

Improved Insulation


A common misconception surrounding bifold doors is that they are bad insulators, losing homes significant amounts of energy during the winter months. However, this is not the case. In fact, bifold doors offer improved insulation due their energy-efficiency. Here at Sash Windows London Ltd, our bifold doors are double glazed, full weather proofed and protected against energy loss. Keeping your home warm during the winter is something everyone wants as nobody wants to sit in six layers of clothes and see their breath when they talk. By installing bifold doors, we can help improve the energy efficiency of your home, sealing all leak points, adding double glazing and ensuring your windows are energy-efficient.

Low Maintenance


At Sash Windows London ltd, our bifold doors require very little maintenance. Made from a choice of aluminium or timber frames, they are extremely durable and will last for years to come in tip-top condition. All that is required from you is giving them an occasional clean to ensure you can continue enjoying your wonderful view without looking through dirty glass.
