Sliding glass doors can help by letting extra light in your home, you fight the winter blues, but they can be one more thing to maintain throughout the winter. Although winters in San Francisco itself aren’t cold enough to cause problems, from the hills in Sonoma County and some scenic parts of Marin, Solano and Contra Costa counties, temperatures sometimes drop below freezing. As a result of suspended runoff in surplus condensation or the paths on the glass doors can freeze closed. Insulate sliding doors if you live in an area with snow and ice.
Wipe the glass door’s paths with soap and warm water before the temperature drops. Clean dirt and debris out of the paths surpasses the doors.
Employ an insulating lubricant such as WD-40 to the paths. This helps prevent them from freezing.
Open a window at the room using the glass door for a few minutes during each day when temperatures are below freezing. The humidity which builds up within your home, preventing moisture from forming on the glass is vented by this.
Keep blinds or drapes that cover the glass door open as much as possible during chilly weather. This enables the warm air within your home to contact and heat the glass.
