With such a large variety of styles, materials and colors to choose from these days, you will be faced with a big decision when it comes time to replace your garage door. When on the hunt for a new door, don’t just concern yourself with appearance. You also have to consider other features, such as energy efficiency and comfort.

Insulated garage doors are ideal in climates where it gets very cold in the winter. Insulation provides a lot of benefits to your garage door, but it’s not a standard offering in every product on the market. Here are some advantages to opting for garage door insulation.

Temperature Control

When you choose an insulated garage door, you are able to keep your garage at a more comfortable, steady temperature. In the summer time, the added insulation will keep the heat out, and in the winter months, it will keep out the cold. So, you no longer have to contend with sweltering conditions in the summer and toe-numbing cold in the winter.

Insulated doors can also lower your energy bills by keeping all that heat and cool air inside the home year round. Without them, the extreme temperatures in your garage can impact rooms that are located near the garage, prompting you to raise or lower your thermostat more times throughout the day than you normally would.

Extra Living Space

With a more comfortable garage, you will be more likely to use it as a functional living space. Rather than just using it as a home for your car or lawn mower, you can now use it as a game room, play area, workshop or craft room. Finish the garage with walls and more insulation and you have a year-round room that can be used for any purpose.

Noise Cancellation

You won’t believe just how quiet an insulated garage door is. As you know, opening and closing the garage door can be quite loud, disrupting anyone in the home, especially if they’re trying to sleep. Insulated garage doors also block out some of the outdoor noises so you don’t have to contend with as many distractions or disturbances – an important factor when living in a high traffic area.

Increase Functionality

From a spacious studio to a home gym, garages can transform into practically any living space easily. But in order to make the conditions more livable, you have to ensure comfort, which starts with the temperature inside.

Insulated garage doors give you consistent temperatures indoors, despite outside weather conditions.

For these reasons and more, you may want to consider an insulated garage door for your home to ensure comfort, energy efficiency and convenience.
