Is it time to replace your front door? For wood doors, check for warping, rotting and for steel, check for dings and rust By StatePoint Homeowners looking to save on energy bills can start right at the front door. Evaluating your main entry door at least once annually for its operational capabilities and energy efficiency features is good practice, say experts. “Most homeowners can get years of service out of their front doors, but there will come a time when a door needs to be replaced,” says Derek Fielding, director of product management for Therma-Tru Corp., a leading manufacturer of entry doors. “It’s important to annually evaluate and maintain your main entryway.” According to Fielding,

there are several ways to determine when it’s time for a replacement. • Open and close doors on both dry and wet, humid days to ensure components operate smoothly. If your door doesn’t close securely or fits tightly on humid days, it’s most likely leaking air on dry days. • Inspect weather stripping around the sides. On a bright day, stand inside and look for daylight flowing through the door perimeter. If light is coming in, then external air and possibly moisture also are likely to be entering. This means it’s time to determine if your foam-filled weatherstripping may have lost some of

its compression, is cracked or worn out. • Examine locks to ensure they operate smoothly and are strong enough to help protect your home. Multipoint locking systems, like those that can be requested on Therma-Tru doors, offer peace-of-mind. • Touch your door on both hot and cold days. If you feel the exterior temperatures from the inside, you may not have adequate insulation. Consider upgrading to an ENERGY STAR qualified door with a multi-point locking system that offers a tighter fit against weatherstripping. • Check the appearance. For wood doors, check for warping or rotting. For steel, check for dings and rust. Check that the style matches the design of your home.

Replacing your door

If it becomes apparent you’re in the market for a new door, consider fiberglass, which is known for energy efficiency, reliability and style customization, according to the American Architectural Manufacturers Association. “A solid fiberglass door is up to four times more energy efficient than solid wood, plus you get the benefits of resistance to rot, rust, dings and weather,” says Fielding. Constructed as a complete system of components, Therma-Tru fiberglass doors are engineered to work together for lasting performance, security and energy efficiency. Key See Doors, D5

Doors Continued from D3 factors in dependability are multi-point locking systems that engage a series of locks at several places on the frame, as well as an adjustable security strike plate that can withstand up to three times the force of standard strike plates. More information can be found at www. ThermaTru.com. Another factor to consider is the material inside your door. A dense polyurethane foam helps achieve high thermal performance values. If you choose to add decorative glass to fiberglass doors, you can also find energy-efficient features if you comparison shop. For energy savings and peace-of-mind, consider your front door. An annual inspection can determine if it’s time for an upgrade.

A common winter hazard: Frozen pipes Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, so keep your thermostat higher than that By Carole Feldman Associated Press It’s a telltale sign: you turn on the faucet and ... nothing. With record cold in much of the nation this winter, many homeowners have had (or will have) to deal with pipes freezing — and then bursting. Winter storm-related insurance losses “will be more this year due to the extreme cold and the breadth of the territory that is being affected by it,” said Peter Foley, vice president of claims for the American Insurance Association. Those losses, which include damage from frozen pipes, total about

$1.4 billion a year on average, according to the Insurance Information Institute. People unaccustomed to extreme, prolonged cold, especially those in the South, are particularly vulnerable, said Robert Hartwig, the institute’s president. “There’s a lack of awareness of the fact that a pipe could freeze and what to do about it,” he said. For instance, they may not shut off the water to outside faucets, and their homes may have less insulation. Damage from a burst pipe can vary greatly, depending on how long the water runs unabated. Some tips on how to pro-

tect against frozen pipes, and what to do if one does freeze:

Before the freeze Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, so keep your thermostat significantly higher than that. “You should never turn it below 55,” Foley said. You might leave the water dripping a little bit, advised Ken Collier, editor-in-chief of The Family Handyman. “That just keeps enough water moving in the pipe so it’s less likely to freeze,” he said. “If there is some freezing, there is some give in the system because the faucet is open a little bit.” Collier also suggested getting warmer, roomtemperature air to where

Pipes Continued from D5 the pipes are. That can be as simple as opening the cabinets under the kitchen sink, especially if the sink is on an exterior wall. “In some cases, a fan can help with that,” he said. Similarly, if pipes run through a crawl space, using a fan to blow in warmer air from the house’s interior might help, he said. Better insulation is the ultimate fix, Collier said, but getting to the pipes can be tricky because it often means breaking through walls.

When a pipe freezes Do frozen pipes always burst? “You can get lucky,” Collier said. “Once it’s frozen, the damage is done,” he said. “Some kinds of pipes break easier than others when the water inside freezes.” Copper pipes are said to be more vulnerable. It may seem obvious, but

there are two clear ways to know if a pipe has frozen. “A sign of a frozen pipe is you have no water,” Foley said. The other sign: flooding. That can happen when the burst pipe starts to thaw out and the water begins flowing again. If the break is in an exposed piece of pipe, it may mean a flooded basement floor. If it’s in a piece that’s not exposed, the water could seep through a wall. It’s critical that homeowners know how to shut off the water to the entire house; that’s “usually the only way to get the water pressure off the frozen place,” Collier said. Ye s, i t c a n b e a n i n convenience — you can’t take a shower or wash the dishes. You can only flush the toilets once. But it’s the best way to prevent further damage, he said.

you have the skills and confidence to do the repair yourself. A temporary fix might involve cutting away the damaged piece of pipe and replacing it with a rubber hose and clamps until the plumber gets there. The degree of difficulty could depend on how accessible the pipe is. There also are various ta p e s a n d p u t t i e s t h a t might temporarily close the break. And call your insurance agent. Homeowners policies generally cover damage related to pipes that freeze and burst. “The repair of the pipe might be a few hundred dollars,” Hartwig said. “The real issue comes in if the leak damages ceilings, floors, furniture, carpeting, electrical work that might be in the wall.” T h e ave ra ge c l a i m i s What next? about $5,000, according Call a plumber, unless to Foley.

The new world of light switches, controls and dimmers wires from one control to another. Now, wireless controllers allow control from spots around the room or even another room. Apps, used on either a tablet or smartphone, are also an integral part of modernday lighting control systems. The bonus is that they also can control window treatments and in-home temperature. “It’s just a matter of swapping out existing controls for wireless versions that can communicate with each other,” says Anderson.

Wireless controllers allow control from spots around the room or another room By NewsUSA A lighting switch is just a switch, right? As itturns out, not really. Technology is changing the smallest details in your home — switches, controls and dimmers — to make daily life more beautiful and more functional. The American Lighting Association (ALA) details advances in lighting switches.

New bulbs equal new switches

If you have decided to embrace the energy-smart world that is LED or CFL lightbulbs, there is something that might be hinder-

ing your use of them: your traditional lighting controls. “Traditional lighting controls don’t work very well with the new bulbs,” says Erik Anderson, national sales manager, residential construction for Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. The reason is that the physics of the new bulbs is much different than that of incandescent bulbs. “With LEDs and CFLs, the way the light is emitted is driven by a driver or a ballast, and those don’t naturally dim.” Say you have a fixture with four bulbs; one burns out, and you decide to replace it with an LED-equivalent

version. The old traditional dimmer does not know how to control that mixed load of bulbs, but new specialized dimmers are engineered and designed to work in that situation.

Wireless lighting controls One thing that often stops homeowners from improving the efficiency of lighting controls is wiring. Older systems used to require

The next generation of lightbulbs Many homeowners still see LED as the wave of the future, and to a certain extent it is. But lightbulbs in development will integrate control technologies in

new ways. “These are smart lightbulbs that can fit into any kind of a standard socket,” says Terry McGowan, director of engineering and technology for ALA. “They connect to the Internet, and you can adjust them so they dim up and down, come on at appropriate times, change color, even flash in time with music.” As these new bulbs and controls make their way into wider acceptance in the marketplace, consumers are going to have a shift in how they think about lighting.

New color trends in home exteriors By StatePoint One of the simplest ways to make a big impact on your home’s exterior is with your front door. But if you are tired of the old standards colors, you’re not alone — experts predict bolder trends this year. “Exuberant hues will be popular this year as a way for homeowners to show the world their energy,” says Kate Smith, a color trend forecaster and president of Sensational Color.

“For those going for a classic feel, colors that are vibrant, yet at the same time, offer comfort, warmth and reliability will reign.” For homeowners looking to express their “colorful selves,” consider selecting a paintable fiberglass door with a smooth finish. For example, those from Therma-Tru Classic-Craft Canvas Collection and Pulse, feature clean lines, crisp See Trends, D13

Trends Continued from D11 angles and attractive glass configuration options, and are ideal for adding personal expression to a home. According to Smith, the top five door colors for the “exuberant homeowner” in 2014 include: • Capri: A tropical blue that wakes up natural woods and neutral surroundings, this hue adds a splash of energy. • Raucous Orange: This color demands attention with its energetic tone and makes the perfect punctuation point for homes with a modern look. • Dynamo: This flirty violet hue instantly updates traditional color schemes for a trendier home front. • Relic Bronze: A deep, almost brown mustard color, “Relic Bronze” reflects aged beauty. • Quixotic Plum: This sophisticated deep purple is where trendy meets timeless. The top five door colors for those following the more classic trend of comfort, as identified by Smith include: • Georgian Bay: Brighter than dark navy, this stepabove reserved blue is a trusted color when it comes to the welcoming message it sends to family and friends. • Show Stopper: Like classic red at dusk, “Show

Stopper” adds a touch of mystery to this bright hue. A slight spin on traditional red, this color warmly welcomes people to a home. • Polished Mahogany: The deep, rich shade of brown has a staying power that traverses trends and captures a solid feeling for homeowners. • Classic French Grey: Stepping out of the shadows to stand on its own, this cool, neutral grey will continue to rule the palette in 2014. • Gulfstream: This bright, modern blue has an ofthe-moment appeal. At the same time, it still feels rooted in something familiar and nostalgic for homeowners. Whether you follow new trends or stick to tradition, don’t forget to take your entire home’s exterior into consideration. From roof to door, a “top down” approach can help you pick color combinations that are eye-pleasing and flow naturally to create curb appeal. For tips on picking the perfect colors for your home’s exterior, including the front door, download a free copy of Smith’s e-book at www.thermatru.com. This year, don’t conform or be bored. With a paintable door, you can make fresh updates as often as you like.

Top 2014 trends

Meeting buyer demands in a seller’s market By Brandpoint With many real estate industry watchers predicting 2014 will be a seller’s market, you may think you won’t need to do much to sell your home this spring. Not so fast - while more buyers are likely to be competing for homes, that doesn’t mean they’re willing to settle for less than perfect. In fact, coming out of the real estate crash of a few years ago, buyers have learned the importance of getting the maximum value for their home investment. While home prices are expected to rise in 2014, buyers continue to have high expectations. Homes that meet buyers’ lists of “must-haves” and “wouldlove-to-have” features will be positioned to sell more quickly and closer to - or above - list price, experts and cooling costs through say.

In fact, 55 percent of homebuyers in a National Association of Home Builder’s survey said skylights are desirable or essential. Skylight manufacturer VELUX America notes that installing no-leak, solar-powered fresh air (venting) skylights not only enhances indoor air quality, but can boost energy efficiency, working in concert with windows.

Buyers Continued from D13 mortgages. Even with the economy moving again, many homeowners have found they like the efficiency and utility of smaller, more purposeful spaces. The functionality of a room is now as important as its size. Buyers will continue to embrace rooms that make the most of the space available, such as compact kitchens that maximize storage, smaller bathrooms that optimize lighting efficiency and privacy, while saving wall space through use of skylights, and open rooms that serve multiple purposes. To see how skylights would look in any room in your home, get a skylight planner app, take pictures in your home, and overlay skylights and blinds on the images with a few clicks.

Aging-in-place potential As more baby boomers approach and enter their golden

years, homebuyers are looking toward the future and seeking homes that offer the potential of allowing them to age in place. In demand are home features that not only look good now (such as an open floor plan or larger bathroom) but that can be easily adapted for older occupants who may face challenges with mobility, vision and other age-related issues. A range of home features fit the bill, including ground-floor bedrooms, ample natural lighting to enhance vision, open floor plans that minimize obstacles to mobility, larger bathrooms that can easily be fitted with grab bars, kitchens with age-friendly features such as touch faucets, and smaller yards with lower maintenance requirements. While higher demand and less inventory are likely to make 2014 a better year for sellers than buyers, if you’re selling your home, knowing what buyers are looking for can help ensure a faster, more rewarding sale - in any market.

Budget-friendly ideas for creating an entertaining space By Brandpoint Each year there is a plethora of sports games, birthday parties and holidays to celebrate with friends and family. Now is the ideal time to create an impressive entertaining space in your home - one that you will be proud to share and truly enjoy throughout the year, whatever the occasion. The good news is, with a few simple strategies, it’s easy and affordable to create the perfect gathering area. Just imagine the memories your family will make snuggled on a plush new couch reading stories, or cheering their favorite soccer or football team to victory while watching a new flatscreen TV. You can set

the stage to make a lasting impression by preparing your home now for guests. Here are easy ways to upgrade your space, and your electronics, without busting your budget.

Freshen furniture Whether guests stay for a few hours or a few days, you want them to be comfortable. Having adequate furniture is key. If your current couch and recliners are more shabby than chic, it’s time to upgrade. New, plush furniture can be within your budget with lease-to-own alternatives.

Accessorize One of the most affordable ways to give your family room a facelift is by

strategically adding a few new decorative accessories. Whether you just got a new couch or want to update your current furniture, new pillows, throws and blankets are perfect for keeping guests toasty warm no matter how low the temperatures drop. P i l l ows a re g rea t fo r lounging and, when you’re hosting a large group, can be used on the floor to keep everyone comfy. A few good blankets - whether in a festive shade to celebrate a particular holiday or the hues of your favorite sport’s team - add a splash of personality while keeping guests cozy.

Electronic entertainment Setting the scene for the perfect party is easy when you have the right entertainment prepped beforehand. Start by having some music ready to get everyone in a festive mood from the moment they arrive. From traditional family favorites to modern tunes, music sets the tone when softly played in the background during the party. Your TV should be center stage, offering guests access to the big game, classic movies and much more. To really impress loved ones, a new flat screen TV is sure to “wow.” The entire family will enjoy fun entertainment options like an Xbox
