It’s the end of the summer, which means the temperatures will start dropping soon. Is your home ready for the winter? Many homeowners start thinking about ways to reduce their winter energy bills in the fall—it’s never too early (or late) to increase your home’s energy efficiency!
Installing insulation is one way to help you save on your utility bills—but the attic and walls aren’t the only places to insulate. Have you considered the garage door? Installing insulated garage doors can contribute to your home energy efficiency efforts.
What Type of Insulation Is Used in Garage Doors?
A form of foam insulation is often used in garage doors. Overhead Door’s steel and wood garage doors have:
- Polyurethane insulation: This is one of the most common types of spray foam insulation and has been used for many years. Spray foam insulation helps prevent air infiltration.
- Polystyrene insulation: A type of rigid foam insulation, polystyrene insulation is used for building products in both the residential and commercial industry.
Our insulated garage doors are not only energy-efficient but can help better protect the interior of your garage and keep your home more comfortable all year long. They also tend to operate more quietly.
Overhead Door offers many different doors that have insulation, including:
- Thermacore® (steel)
- Courtyard Collection® (steel)
- Carriage House (steel)
- Impression Collection® (fiberglass)
- Durafirm Collection® (vinyl)
- Traditional Wood (wood)
- Signature® Carriage (wood)
- Traditional Steel (steel)
These doors have different R-values (measurements of the insulation material’s ability to stop the transfer of heat), from 4.75 all the way to 17.5.
