Should You Choose Insulated Garage Doors?

Should You Choose Insulated Garage Doors?

When you are in the market for new garage doors for your home, one of the decisions you will need to make is whether to go with a traditional, standard garage door or consider an insulated version. There are several questions you’ll need to ask yourself, so you can determine if insulated garage doors would be a good option for you.

  • What do you store in your garage? If you store items that are sensitive to temperature extremes, you will want to consider insulated garage doors.
  • How much time do you spend in the garage? If your garage is a place that you do laundry, practice with a band, or work on a hobby of some sort, you’ll be more comfortable if you invest in insulated garage doors.
  • Do you have a chest or upright freezer in the garage? Some freezers are made to be “garage ready” meaning they can handle a wider temperature range than standard ones. If your freezer wasn’t built with this feature, the next best thing to prolong the life of your freezer and have it operate more efficiently is to install insulated garage doors.
  • Do you desire a more durable garage door? Insulated garage doors have the added benefit of being stronger and able to stand up to abuse better.
  • Do you want a more energy-efficient home? The rooms that share a wall with the garage will be easier to keep at a comfortable temperature if you have an insulated garage door.
  • Do you desire a quieter garage and home? Insulated garage doors are beneficial for noise reduction as much as heat transfer reduction.
