I have the opportunity to have a front entry door to be made from walnut harvested several years ago from the present building site. I also have lined up a very good door maker with long experience and quality workmanship. Thermal efficiency is not his “thing”…
The question is: What products or techniques can we employ to improve the energy efficiency of a wood raised panel door?
Jambs, threshold, weatherstripping?
Incorporate thermal breaks?
