Are big French doors worth the excess heat loss?

French doors are all well and good, but given their size I would imagine the expel more heat than our average doors and windows. Do you think this trade-off is worth it?

That's all about personal choice. At the end of the day, which thing will improve your quality of life the most: a lower heating bill or a beautiful set-up that opens into the garden? You can make a case for either thing.

I agree with St Rhenium. It's all about personal preference. I for one, would rather have a lovely set of French doors with a beautiful view. That's just my personal preference though!
