Have you noticed that your energy bill seems to keep going up even though you are trying to use less electricity? You might find that this increase in energy usage is coming from your garage door. It’s not the raising and lowering of the door that is causing the energy drain – that only uses a miniscule amount of energy. The real problem could be coming from heat and cool air being lost through the garage door.
If you are getting ready to buy a new garage door, then you might want to consider purchasing steel insulated garage door. Our insulated garage door has steel on the front, insulation in the middle and steel on the back, like a sandwich. We have had personal reports that the insulation made a huge difference controlling the temperature in the home. In Texas, our challenge is usually keeping the heat out, and our warm season can last for a very long time.
Additionally, the weatherstripping on the garage door can easily become hard, brittle and inflexible over time allowing the outdoors a little more access to your home than you would like. A new rubber seal will be flexible, pliable and will be more likely to stay flush with the ground protecting your home from various critters, insects and elements.
