Did you know that 7 out of every 10 homeowners rely on the garage door as their primary entrance into the home? Now that’s a fun fact for sure. But why does it matter? Let’s break it down.
Opening your garage door when it’s cold outside isn’t like opening your front door whereby a rush of cold air comes tumbling into your warm space. Even if your garage door is insulated, it’s an unconditioned living room-size space that just stays cold. So, why insulate it? Here are 4 reasons to help you decide if buying an insulated garage door is right for you.
A garage door that is insulated acts as a buffer between the home’s warm interior and the cold outdoors. The garage may still be cold. However, it will allow less cold air to enter the home.
During the winter season, garage doors may still get very cold. Still, if you install an insulated garage door, it’s much less likely to freeze. This is good news for car owners whose vehicles won’t start in freezing temperatures.
The flip side of being warmer in the winter, having an insulated door keeps your garage cooler in the summer. It’s not as big of an issue as it is in Arizona; however we do get a fair amount of days over 75. If your garage faces into the sun, you will enjoy the cool comfort in the summer.
There’s nothing quite like a noisy garage door. Everyone knows when some is coming or going. With insulated garage doors, the chance of excessive noise and rattling is greatly reduced.
Most major manufacturers agree, the polyurethane in insulated garage doors adds rigidity to the door panels. This also helps them withstand impact and aids in the stress of raising and lowering the doors.
