Should You Upgrade Your Home with an Insulated Garage Door?


Are you in the market for a new garage door? You may have heard about insulated garage doors during your research.

Insulated garage doors are an excellent addition to your home and can provide many benefits other than just protecting your cars and stored items. Learn more about the benefits of insulated garage doors so you can make the right choice.

What Are Insulated Garage Doors?

An insulated garage door is just what it sounds like — a garage door that has extra layers of insulation. Some traditional garage doors are a single layer, which doesn’t provide much protection against the elements. Newer garage doors are made with more layers, which indicates how much insulation is included.

When purchasing a new garage door, choose a quality product manufactured by a reputable company with two-layer or three-layer construction:

  • One-layer: A single layer of steel with no insulation.
  • Two-layer: A layer of insulation is placed in between a sheet of steel and a layer of vinyl.
  • Three-layer: Two layers of steel with insulation in between offers the highest R-value (the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness) available. These triple-layer garage doors provide the most insulation efficiency.

Benefits of Insulated Garage Doors

There are many benefits of insulated garage doors, particularly if you choose a newer, three-layer garage door. Let’s look at some of the benefits so you can make a smart decision.

Better Climate Control

Whether you store valuable tools or wish to use your garage for a home gym, an insulated door will help with climate control. In the winter, garage door insulation keeps warm air inside and cool air outside.

For most of the year, your garage door insulation will be enough to keep you comfortable, which means you don’t need to add extra heating or cooling elements in your garage. If your garage gets too warm, you can always open the door to let in cooler air.

Increased Energy Efficiency

Just like insulation in your home, garage door insulation helps regulate your home’s temperature. If your garage is too cold in the winter, that cold air is bound to seep into your home, which brings down the temperature.

Your heating system will have to work harder to maintain your desired temperature, which raises your utility bills. With an insulated garage door, your garage will stay warmer, lessening drastic air temperature changes between your garage and your home.

Reduced Noise Transfer

Insulated garage doors reduce noise transfer. It can help keep outside sounds from reaching your home’s interior. This can make your home more comfortable by reducing excess noise, which perfect if you live near a highway or a noisy street.

More Protection Against Damage

A garage door with two or three layers of insulation is better protected against potential damage. Bumps from cars or basketballs won’t be as damaging with a thicker, insulated garage door. Plus, you’ll have more protection against would-be intruders.
