Get an Energy-Efficient Doggie Door


You’ve weather-stripped your doors and windows, caulked around electric outlets and other wall penetra- tions and had your heating system checked by a pro. Yet you let your dog push through a flap in an un-insulated pet door whenever nature calls. There’s no reason to lose expen- sive, heated air through a doggie door, since manufacturers started making energy-efficient models that allow Fido to come and go without wasting electricity.


Here are a few features to consider when replacing your energy-wasting pet door with a more efficient model: • Look for an Energy Star-rated


model. These are guaranteed be sub- stantially more energy efficient than older pet doors. • Choose a door with magnetic stripping so it fits into the door open- ing as snugly as possible. • If you buy a wood door, insist on a model whose core is filled with an insulating material like polyure- thane foam or fiberglass. • If you prefer a glass door, buy

one with two panes of coated glass and are filled between the panes with a non-toxic gas for an extra layer of efficiency. • Some manufacturers are mak- ing flap-style doors that are extra-side and insulated so they keep outdoor air from getting into the house except when Rover pushes it open. Still, a sliding door or another model made from a rigid material is more secure and efficient. • For security, find a door that you can lock at night to keep your pet indoors and unwanted animals out of the house. • The bigger the door, the more air gets displaced when your dog opens it. Choose a door that’s just the right size for your pet to comfortably


scoot through. No need to buy a big- ger door than your dog needs. • Avoid tinkering with your new


door once it’s installed. Energy Star claims are based on how the door performs when it’s used according to manufacturer’s instructions. Altering the door could make it less efficient.
