It is a good choice, you will get an economic benefit since Windows and glass doors made of wood with a double or a triple glazing provides maximum energy savings.The thermal coefficient (W/m2C) of these Windows doors can vary from 3.0 to 1.7 (points of comparison: metallic carpentry, double glazed with 6 mm camera: k = 4.) Window with a single crystal: k = 5. 8) exterior wood doors are thermally isolated with a coefficient (k = 0. 55) more information: houses wooden, prefabricated houses, American homes original author and source of the article..
