Cold in winter! Hot in summer!
Do you have an open plan house, or an opening that you wanted to fit a door to but can’t find anything quite right? Ever turned on the heater and wondered where the heat has gone?
With new houses these days, having an open plan living is nice and spacious; teenagers can play their games and watch TV, kids can run around the house freely and people can walk around easily, especially during parties. But what happens when you don’t have a party, and the kids are sleeping - you sit down to watch your favourite TV show with your legs on the ottoman heater turned up to a comfortable temperature and you feel the cold breeze chill the back of your neck, and your feet are freezing!
It can be difficult to heat an open plan living home. You may have ducted air throughout your house that will heat your house up, but what happens when you get your electricity bill? Think about this for a minute; if you have a double storey house and turn the ducted air on, where do you think the hot air will travel? Most people might say it will simply heat the room you are in, but as heat rises, your upstairs rooms will be heated first and your downstairs living area is left trying to heat up.
Have you checked your electricity bills lately?
With the higher cost of living these days, we are trying to save money everywhere we can. You hear people complaining about transport, fuel, groceries and electricity bills going up. We can save money at home. Let’s face it, we can go through winter and not use the heater, summer without turning on the air conditioner - this will save you some money, but how uncomfortable will you be in your own home? Your home is supposed to be a place of comfort and luxury.
Houses these days have door openings everywhere. When you turn on the heater in one room you are not just heating that room - you are trying to heat the whole house, and you will never keep warm. If you could close off an area and heat the room without heating the whole house, this could mean a saving on your electricity bill.
Being able to close off the opening with doors would be ideal in this case to keep the electricity bill down. Your home should be a place of comfort where you can sit back and relax, and enjoy your environment.
Doors Plus has a solution.
Doors Plus has come up with a new product called Zone Living TM. Zone Living is made to suit classic homes to modern homes. If you have an open plan living, including doorways with no doors, an opening that goes to the ceiling, an opening without a frame or a frame not suitable for a door, Zone Living is the right product for you.
As every single doorway is different, Zone Living is custom-made to size, so a professional Doors Plus representative will measure your doorway before it gets made to fit your opening perfectly. It comes with clear safe glass, double glazed and double glazed translucent, and you have a choice of stacking doors, double sliding doors, folding doors and opening doors.
