How to Make Your Garage Door More Energy-Efficient

If your garage is attached to your home, you know that a lot of cold air can enter into your home via the garage, especially during the kind of winters we’ve been having the last few years. Fortunately, there are many ways to make your home (including the garage door!) more energy-efficient and keep that cold air outside where it belongs.

Ways to make your garage door more energy-efficient

  • Insulate your existing door. Most garage doors are made for security, not energy efficiency. Some types of doors can absorb the cold temperature and transfer it to the inside of your garage, even while the door is closed. An insulated garage door can help prevent this. We offer insulated doors in all materials!
  • Choose a door that’s naturally resistant to temperature changes. If you’re already thinking about upgrading your garage door, consider the insulation potential before you decide on a door. Some materials, such as wood, are naturally resistant to temperature transfer. This doesn’t mean you can’t get an energy-efficient door in another material.
  • Install weatherseals at the bottom of your door. Another place that cold air can enter your garage is from under the door. Prevent this by installing a garage door with a good bottom weatherseal or repairing your old one.
