Green home products are in high demand, and with good reason. They’re beneficial to the environment and can save homeowners money. Masonite offers the following tips for homeowners looking to purchase eco-friendly doors.
- Choose doors made from renewable resources. Solid wood doors are beautiful, but there are more sustainable alternatives that reduce the amount of trees harvested. For example, Masonite offers many of its interior doors in the Safe ‘N Sound® Emerald™ option, which has a core made of rapidly renewable wheat straw.
- Look for ENERGY STAR® rated door systems, which meet strict installation guidelines set by the EPA and U.S. Department of Energy. (As an added bonus, did you know that using ENERGY STAR products can reduce home energy bills by up to one-third?)
- Request doors that use low emission adhesives and sealants to improve indoor air quality. Masonite’s Safe ‘N Sound doors use low emission adhesives and are available in hollow and solid core.
Armed with a little bit of knowledge, you can be confident you’re choosing a door that will benefit your home and our planet. Check out all of our eco-friendly doors at Masonite.com.
