If your goal is to make strides in reducing your household’s carbon footprint and lowering energy costs, you’ll be happy to learn that you can do precisely that with garage door replacement. Replacing an old garage door with a new insulated style is a great way to make your home more energy-efficient. An insulated garage door uses layers of steel and insulation to achieve increased R-values to provide consistent comfort in the garage and rooms next to and above the garage. Here are a couple of things you should know about garage door replacement to reduce energy costs:
- Quality matters- Just because a garage door is insulated doesn’t mean it will give you optimal energy savings. Consider trusted manufacturers that have gone above and beyond to create exceptional insulated garage doors. For example, Clopay’s Intellicore insulation is expandable insulation that fills the entire door to provide an industry-leading R-value of up to 20.4. Amarr is another leader that offers two options: a double layer product with vinyl-coated polystyrene insulation and a triple layer option with insulation encased between two layers of steel for ultimate energy efficiency and noise reduction.
- Additional benefit- There is another benefit that upgrading to an insulated option during garage door replacement offers. During the summer, your garage will be cooler, which is better for your vehicle’s battery. You’ll get a longer life from the battery, which saves you money.
