Are All Pet Doors Drafty?
One of the most common pet door complaints is that they are drafty. Whether you live in a cold or warm area, drafts are one of the biggest deterrents for pet owners who are considering buying their dog or cat a pet door.
However, not every pet door is built the same. Not only is the Endura Flap pet door optimized to prevent drafts from coming in or out of your house, but it is one of the only pet doors out there with customizable upgrades to increase your protection value.
The Endura Flap’s Supreme Insulation Value
A normal dog door flap can let in cold air during the winter, which increases your heating bills. It can also increase cooling bills in hot climates as warm air can slip into your home through your pet flap just as much as your air conditioning can slip out.
That’s why we have engineered the Endura Flap pet door to be the best draft-fighting pet door on the market. The flap is designed to stay sealed even against the highest winds, keeping the outside air out.
How is this possible? Each flap is lined with magnets that holds it in place. Our lab tests even show that it can stay shut in winds up to 50 miles per an hour. No other pet door on the market offers similar levels of wind protection.
Plus, if you’re really looking for an energy efficient pet door, we have double flap models available for wall and door mounts. Unlike single flap models, the double flap system creates a pocket of air between the inside of your home and the outside. This air pocket buffers cold drafts so that your home remains insulated.
If you’re looking for a door insert for your sliding glass door, then you don’t need to worry about insulation value either. Every single one of our door panel inserts for sliding doors and windows are made with Low-e glass. This prevents the sun from heating up your house, which can cause your cooling bills to rocket.
How to Upgrade the Endura Flap Pet Door
The Endura Flap as is offers supreme weather protection, including:
- Resistance to 50 mph winds
- Withstands -40 F cold
- UV retardant to prevent sun damage
While this far surpasses the extreme weather protection offered by other pet doors, you might still need even more insulation value. Whether you’re in the frigid winters of Alaska or the brutal heats of Death Valley, California, you can upgrade your pet door so that it offers even more protection, such as adding magnets and weather stripping.
The Endura Flap pet door is one of the one pet doors out there with variable magnet strength. You can easily remove and add magnets to the bottom of your pet door in order to increase the seal, keeping out cold and hot wind.
You can purchase additional magnets in order to strengthen the seal or, if your pet door is too heavy for your pet to use, you can remove magnets to make it easier to push open. You can learn all about our magnets here.
In addition to changing your door’s magnet strength, you can also apply additional weatherstripping around your pet door. Weather stripping is extra, fuzzy insulation that can prevent drafts from slipping into your house, especially for our door panel inserts.
Combined with extra magnet strength, the weather stripping can offer supreme insulation value that can outmatch any other pet door on the market.
