Pet Doors – Good or Bad Idea?

998_4168502-700x466Installing a pet door in your home can offer convenience, comfort and care for your four-legged friends. The advantage of having a pet door installed is that it makes going outside handy for your pet whether you are home or away. However, there are a few considerations that you may want to factor into your decision.

Energy – Pet doors can take a toll on your energy bill by letting warm and cold air out or in. There are energy-saving options available that can help conserve energy by preventing drafts.

Intruders – Other animals, or even people, can crawl through the pet door into your home, leading to destruction or theft. Look for models designed with your security in mind to avoid such problems.

Children – Young children having access to pet doors can often lead to accidents. There are electronic locking models that will help ensure your children’s safety.

Altering the Home – Most pet doors require homeowners to cut holes in walls or doors during installation. If permanently altering your home worries you, pet doors may not be for you.

Under the right conditions, a pet door can allow you and your animals to enjoy the freedom to come and go as they please. To learn more about pet doors, click here. If I can be of service to you, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
