The door - it is the entrance to the house, and it should not only protect against intruders, but also from cold and noise.
According to statistics, a third of the heat is lost through the entrance is, and blows most often because the gap formed.
This is especially noticeable in the cold season, when connected heaters, and the room temperature does not rise.
After warming the doors in the house temperature will rise by 3-4 ° C, normal humidity and reduce space heating costs.
Methods of insulation of doors
If the wooden door entrance - remove the doorhinges, remove the handle and, if there is a peephole. Polyethylene foam make sausages (rollers), obtyanite the material that you have chosen to use in the door trim. It can be leather or leatherette. From foam sheet Cut the sheet commensurate with your door. Obtyanite his chosen material. With the help of liquid nails easily grab your list with the door surface. Insulated door is ready, it remains to return it to its original place, a place to cut eye (if you had one), and fasten the handle to its original location.
When insulation Wooden doors(For example, in the country), armed with a plane or a hacksaw. It is necessary to make adjusting the door leaf to the box. On the remaining gaps tamp strips, such as felt. You can also use ordinary cotton, which will also serve as a good sound insulator.
If your door is "survivor", most likely,materials to fill the empty spaces were the most primitive. Before warming produced by any means at hand. The easiest way - to stick the seal on the frame. The sealing tape may be foam rubber, polyethylene foam, rubber. Width, thickness, and color is also varied. Stick tape on the basis of self-adhesive and secure. If the sealant without adhesive backing, secure it with liquid nails.
What use materials
Izolon - the minimum thickness of the material will give a good result for the thermal insulation performance.
Foam - cheaper izolona several times,short-lived, over time, it begins to crumble, but for beginners - just a godsend. If you can nail the nails and glue to use, then Insulate the door without difficulty. Foam is easy to use and can be easily attached to the surface.
Plain cotton - the most economical option, but because"Miser pays twice", because wool absorbs moisture and eventually in your compactor will begin to breed bacteria, causing harm to all living in this area. And yet, after a while wool begins to run off and settle down, forming a bulge.
Silicone fillers - easy to use, resistant to external influences and show good results in practice. However, there is a minus - poor sound insulation.
Pay special attention to the thickness of the seal. In the need to know when to stop. Too thick insulation - bring the problem to the closure of the lock, and then the door, but too thin - not give you the effect that, for the sake of what you all are up to.
