Garage Door Insulation – How Important Is It?
If your garage is attached to your home an insulated garage door provides you with three rather good advantages especially if you live in a place like Ottawa, where winters can be pretty cold. An insulated garage door is going to save you money on your energy bill and make getting in your car in the morning a little more comfortable.
There is a huge difference between a cold garage and one with temperatures below zero. The insulation works for you in the hot summer months by providing a cool spot to retreat to as well as reducing the cost of cooling.
The second advantage is noise reduction. Insulated garage doors are quieter to operate which family members will appreciate especially late at night and early in the morning.
Basically, an insulated garage door is stronger; insulation adds rigidity to the door panels, helping them withstand certain impacts, as well as the stress of constant raising and lowering.
