If you are considering insulating your garage door, you will be pleased to know that you are headed in the right direction. If you are hesitant to insulate your garage door, there are a few factors that you should consider. The insulation can do wonders and boost the efficiency of both your garage and your home. Below we discuss the top four advantages of an insulated garage door.
Your interior will be more energy efficient.
Garage doors open and close so often that they allow a lot of outside air to enter your garage. Because your garage shares a wall with the interior of your home, this constant temperature change can impact the temperature stability of your home and negatively affect your energy bills. Obviously, the reduction in energy costs is a big reason that insulated garage doors are so popular.
Your garage will be more comfortable.
Do you spend a lot of time in your garage? If you live in the Midwest, you know that there is a wide range of weather that includes frigid winters and humid summers. When the temperature is far below freezing, it can become quite uncomfortable to work on your car for hours at a time. Thankfully, garage door insulation will reduce the temperature range in your garage. The insulation helps to keep your garage warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer by blocking outside air from entering.
There will be reduced outside air from entering rooms above the garage.
If you have a garage door that sits below a room, the insulation will keep the external air from rising into that room. In addition, that room will warm up faster when its cold and cool down faster during the summer.
You will see less distraction caused by noise.
Yes, garage door insulation panels will help to keep any loud noise inside your garage. If you are fond of using noisy power tools but do not want to annoy your friends or family inside, insulation will inhibit the racket and provide your home with a little peace and quiet. You will hear less noise from the outside world while you are in your garage as well. This means there will be less interference while you work.
Hopefully these four advantages of an insulated garage door will give you a better understanding of how insulation will save you money on energy bills, make your home interior more comfortable and improve noise control.
