Screen doors: environmentally-friendly air conditioning

Environmentally-friendly home improvement has become a popular way for Vancouver homeowners to have a positive impact on the environment. But it’s not just about alternative power sources and recycling. Simple changes like installing premium screens in your windows and doors can also make a big difference.   

For the past 15 years, Wizard Industries, a family-run business based in Vancouver, has been leading the screen door industry with innovations that have made it easier and easier for homeowners to find the right screen door for their home and their lifestyle.

"Our screen doors are very secure,” says Darrell Bedford, Director of Brand Communication at Wizard Screens, “and that allows our customers to leave their doors open in the warmer months, which cuts down on their cooling expense considerably, not to mention their energy consumption.”  

With hydro rates continuing to rise along with the average summer temperature, screen doors have never made more sense.

“Most people who don’t have screen doors tend to think that they can’t get the right fit, or that the screens won’t offer much resistance either from unwanted guests trying to get in, or tiny guests like toddlers and small children trying to get out,” says Bedford. “But our SecuraView screens are built with high tensile marine grade stainless steel mesh and they’re installed in a heavy duty aluminum frame. They’re a lot more secure than you think.” 

Like a lot of companies today, Wizard Industries is committed to making products that contribute positively to the environment. They’re also committed to meeting the changing needs of customers in a more environmentally-conscious marketplace.

“Professionally installing good screens in your house is probably the easiest way to make a difference in your environmental footprint,” says Bedford. “All you need to do is pick up the phone.”
