benefits of garage door insulation

 

Keep the Cold Out

If you live in an area where temperatures drop below freezing during the winter months, like our beautiful Cache Valley, Utah, and you want to warm up your garage, then we have a simple solution for you. Garage Door Insulation Kits! Each time you open and close your garage door, cold air travels in and can end up in your home living space.

 

An insulated garage door will reduce the transfer of air from the outside to the inside. It raises the R-value, gives the door an attractive clean look and makes the door quieter.

 

Are you using your garage as a shop? Installing an insulation kit helps maintain a comfortable temperature making your garage a more comfortable environment to be in. If you have a heated garage you can run the heater on the lowest setting and still keep a warm garage.

 

Many homeowners are building rooms above the garage to utilize much needed space. An insulated garage door will help to keep cold air from traveling through the ceiling of the garage into the floor of the room above.

 

What is an Insulation Kit?

Insulation kits are panels made of high quality expanded polystyrene with a high impact styrene backing on the exposed panel face (in other words, hard vinyl backing). The insulation and backing is white in color. They are easy to clean and very durable.

 

They most commonly come in 9′ to 10′ lengths, are about 1 1/2″ thick and range in height from 18″, 21″ and 24″.  Panels can also be special ordered to a bigger size depending on the height of your garage door sections.

 

Insulation kits are perfect for a DYI project. They are easy to install and very budget friendly. You can purchase them online or from your garage door dealer. If you want it done for you just call your local garage door dealer, they will order it for you and installation should only take about an hour.

 

Not only do insulation kits warm up your garage but they also keep the garage cooler in the summer saving on energy costs. Insulated garage doors act as a buffer and help maintain the inside temperature. According to the polyurethane manufacturer, Dow, an insulated garage door can help the average homeowner save up to 20% on their annual energy costs. Also, an insulated door is heavier so the garage door runs quieter and smoother.
