Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency Through Your Garage Door

When most homeowners think about their home’s energy efficiency, they think about the attic, windows, and their HVAC unit. But what about your garage door? 

If you think about it, your garage door is the largest door into your home, and you’d be surprised how much air can escape through it. Here are three ways you can improve your home’s energy efficiency through your garage door.

1. Insulate Your Garage Door

Insulation in your garage doesn’t just belong in the walls, it belongs in the garage door too. If your existing garage door does not have insulation, you can schedule a garage door service to help you insulate it. 

If you are in the market for a new garage door, look for one with high-grade insulation. A well-insulated garage door will help keep the temperature in your garage more consistent and prevent conditioned air from leaving.

2. Install the Right Garage Door Opener

When homeowners invest in garage door installation, they often focus on the door itself, but forget about the garage door opener. If you have a garage door opener that isn’t meant to lift the weight of your current door, it will have to work extra hard to get the job done, using more energy. Work with a garage door professional to find the right size for your home. 

3. Make Necessary Repairs

If your garage door is damaged, it is not going to do an effective job in keeping your garage and your home protected from the outdoor elements. If your garage door has a hole, broken seam, or window leak, energy efficiency goes right out the window. In addition, issues with garage doors can often get worse over time if not addressed, so it is best to call for repairs as soon as you notice there is an issue.
