Everyone wants to save money on their household energy bills. Some strategies include changing your energy supplier to save on electricity or finding the best price per gallon on heating fuel. As you find ways to make your home more cost-effective and eco-friendly, have you considered how much heating and cooling is lost through your garage door? If you want to get the most out of your home’s air conditioning and heating, contact EXL Garage Doors about garage door insulation services.
Benefits of Insulating Your Garage Door
Here are the four main advantages of insulating your garage door.
Save on Energy Costs
As the temperatures outside rise and fall throughout the year, the temperature of your garage will change as well. If your garage is attached to your home, an uninsulated garage door will leech warm air out of the adjoining rooms and replace it with outside air. As a result, your heat will kick on, using more fuel and electricity to reheat the rooms.
A garage door insulation kit is relatively inexpensive and can provide supplemental insulation to help you save money.
Enjoy a Consistent Garage Temperature
Because of their location and usage, garages are one of the most inefficient areas of the home and are difficult to keep at a steady temperature. Adding insulation helps prevent air from getting in so you can better manage your garage temperature.
Ensure Valuables Stay Safe
Insulating your garage door is crucial if you use it as a workspace or storage space for valuable items like antiques or classic cars. It’s important to protect your belongings both from the weather and cold temperatures. In particular, older automobiles are susceptible to rust in humid weather and damage in cold weather. For example, their fluids can become more viscous and their wiring can be hampered.
Using insulation to create a buffer zone that’s slightly cooler than your home but warmer than the outside will create a comfortable atmosphere in your garage workspace.
Reduce Unwanted Noise
An insulated garage door can help reduce noise that originates both from within and outside of the garage. If you spend time in your garage, consider using insulation to keep warm air in and help with noise reduction. As a result, you can work in peace and comfort within the confines of your garage at any time of day.
