Garage Doors & Reduced Energy Costs

Your garage door is a major necessity, and it’s a true convenience, regardless of the size, material or style. But in addition to providing protection against inclement weather and burglary, did you know your garage door can help decrease your energy costs?

There are many energy-efficient garage doors available, as well as doors that offer superior thermal performance. If you need a new garage door for your home or place of business in the Indianapolis area, Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie has you covered!

Garage Door Energy Efficiency

When it comes to insulation, most people think about their attic and walls, not the garage door. But insulated garage doors can help save you money and make your home more comfortable! Think about it this way—your garage probably isn’t insulated, and if it’s adjacent to your home, it’s likely that some of your heating and cooling is lost through the garage. This increases your energy costs. Installing an insulated, energy-efficient garage door is a good way to help reduce your energy costs.

Energy-Efficient Garage Doors

It starts with making sure you install an insulated garage door. Overhead Door offers many garage doors with insulation and high R-values (measurements of how effective insulation is):


Our Thermacore® garage door is a sturdy, insulated steel door that is great for both homes and commercial buildings. The Thermacore® collection includes models with high R-values of up to 9.31, 12.76 and 17.5.


In addition to Thermacore® doors, we offer other steel doors in our Traditional Steel collection. It has doors with R-values of up to 7.4, and there are a couple models with higher R-values of 9.8. If you want a door with an even higher R-value, consider the models in our Carriage House Collection, which have R-values of 10. The custom steel garage doors in our Courtyard Collection® offer the highest R-value—12.76.


The flush panel garage doors in our Traditional Wood collection have polystyrene insulation, with an R-value of 4.75. We also offer insulated wood garage doors in our Signature® Carriage line.
