If you have an attached garage, your home could be losing energy to heat it in the winter and cool it in the summer, even if you have no intention of doing so. If your garage isn’t insulated, you could be facing greater energy loss and higher energy bills. At Ingstrup Construction in Lansing, MI, we know that many people who insulate their garages forget to do the same to their garage door.
Whether your garage door is open or closed, it is the place where most of your exchange with the outside takes place. Because it covers such a large area, it is important that your garage door be as insulated as the rest of your garage. It will help keep the garage cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter while saving you money on your energy bills.
Outside Coming In
If you live in a house, you probably value your privacy. An insulated garage door will help prevent outside noises, like traffic, kids, and barking dogs, from intruding on your peaceful home interior. A well-insulated door can even help keep the sounds of your garage band in the garage, so neighbors won’t complain.
Protecting Your Stuff
Chances are that you have a lot of different things stored in your garage. If your garage is subject to large changes in temperature or humidity, the items you have stored could be damaged. Whether it’s a bike, your LP collection, books, or something else, you have it stored because it’s valuable to you. Insulating your overhead door in Lansing will help you maintain these items by limiting their exposure to high heat or low temperatures. In addition, you save money because you won’t have to throw away something you need only once in a while and buy it new every time you need it. Protecting your door, your items, and your home is as easy as insulating your garage door.
