The PlexiDor line of manual pet doors is the best dog door or cat door for cold weather.
These doors will function down to –40 degrees F/C. The door will still work below this temperature, but it will get frosty and the weather seal will freeze to the frame.
The PlexiDor costs more to purchase than many other pet doors. On the other hand, it is one of the cheapest doors to own over its lifetime.
Over a ten-year period, these pet doors require very little maintenance, there are no flaps to replace, and they are energy efficient, saving money on heating and cooling.
