While most people make sure that their home’s walls and attic are insulated, the insulation should not stop there. A new insulated garage door provides many benefits, no matter where a house is located. Consider these top three benefits of having a new insulated garage door professionally installed.
Top 3 Benefits of Having a New Insulated Garage Door Installed
Improved Energy Efficiency
An insulated garage door helps maintain consistent indoor temperatures in garages, especially those that are attached to the house. A garage that is not climate controlled will become cold in the winter and hot during the summer. A professionally insulated garage door experiences less unwanted thermal exchange with the outdoors.
This can also improve the home’s energy efficiency, as less of the outdoor air gets into the house through the garage. You may also find it more pleasant to spend time in an insulated garage.
If your garage door is made of metal, sound waves can easily penetrate through it. This means that all the outdoor noises of lawn mowers, traffic and leaf blowers all make their way into your dwelling. The insulation stops these sound waves from traveling through the metal and into your home. As a result of insulating the garage door, your garage and the rest of your house should be quieter.
While most insulation is lightweight, having it installed onto the interior side of your garage door increases the door’s strength. This is especially important for an aluminum garage door, as these doors are easily dented from airborne objects. Even steel, vinyl and fiberglass doors can have enhanced strength from adding insulation. For the greatest level of durability, you should ask for two or three layers of insulation to be installed onto your home’s garage door.
