Do I Need an Insulated Garage Door?
Do I need an insulated garage door?
You work hard to increase your energy efficiency. You do everything you can to decrease your heating and cooling costs, but nothing seems to work. That could be because your heat and cool air is all escaping through a low-insulated garage door. Your garage door makes up as much as 30% of your home’s exterior. Upgrading your garage door to an insulated option can make a big difference in your home’s efficiency.
There are many benefits of insulated garage doors.
THE BENEFITS OF INSULATED GARAGE DOORS
If you’re unsure whether you need an insulated garage door, consider its advantages. An insulated garage door has huge impact on your home.
1. SAVES ENERGY
If the temperature outside is 20 degrees, your garage could be around 42 degrees with an insulated door. With an uninsulated door, it could be just 30 degrees. If you heat your garage, that temperature difference could help save energy. If your garage is attached to your home, keeping the space insulated could also benefit your home’s temperature.
An insulated garage door helps to control the temperature in your garage. If the outside temperature is 20°F, an insulated garage door helps keep your garage around 42°F rather than 30°F with a non-insulated garage door. If you heat your garage, that temperature difference helps save you money on your heating costs. If you have an attached garage, keeping the space insulated helps to maintain your home’s temperature, especially if you have a room above your garage.
With our Central Kansas weather, an insulated garage door can be of benefit to you during the hot summers and cold winters.
2. ADDITIONAL DURABILITY
A high-quality garage door from MPIRE Improvements is a durable option, but you can improve that durability by choosing an insulated option. The multi-layer insulated garage door is better protected and longer-lasting than a non-insulated version. You utilize your garage door multiple times a day, you want to make sure it can withstand that use.
3. PROTECTS YOUR BELONGINGS
Freezing temperatures cause trouble for your car and the belongings you keep in the garage. For your vehicles, freezing weather leads to low air pressure in the tires, a shorter battery life and thickened fluids. An insulated garage door helps keep out the cold to help prevent these issues.
4. DAMPENS NOISE
An insulated garage door helps keep exterior noises out. Whether you live on a busy street, have work that requires you to concentrate in your garage or just enjoy the peace and quiet, an insulated garage door can keep your home peaceful and quiet.
