To some people, garage door insulation may seem like an obvious choice, while others may wonder if there are any garage door insulation benefits at all. When compared to other garage door decisions, like how often you should replace your torsion springs or how much horsepower you need for your garage door opener, insulation may not seem to be that important. However, garage door insulation has many benefits.
Why Insulate Your Garage Door?
So why insulate your garage door? While it’s not as critical to insulate your garage door as it is for your windows or other parts of your home, quite a bit of heat can escape or enter your home through your garage. You could insulate the interior door leading from your garage to your home, but this would leave your cars or other property in the garage vulnerable to weather conditions, as well as create temperature problems for you if you work or perform other activities in the garage.
An insulated garage door can save you a considerable amount of money on energy costs. By preventing warm air from escaping your home, you can use less electricity to heat your home in the winter. By the same token, you’ll enjoy lower air conditioning costs in the summer. If your home is older or especially drafty, an insulated garage door could pay for itself very quickly.
Insulated garage doors have many benefits other than saving you money on heating and cooling costs. The insulating foam in these garage doors also has a sound-dampening effect, so you can enjoy much quieter operation with your insulated garage door. Furthermore, the multiple layers of material in an insulated garage door make it much more impact-resistant, meaning you’ll have a more durable garage door, as well.
