If you’re in the market to replace your garage door, one of the options you’ll surely consider is whether to purchase an insulated or non-insulated door. Non-insulated doors still protect from the elements with the material they are made from – whether it be steel or wood – but sometimes that just isn’t enough.
If you’re looking for that extra layer of protection, an insulated garage door may be perfect. Here are some of the lesser-known benefits that come along with adding insulation to your garage.
Use your garage as a workspace
If you’re one of the many who likes to use their garage for more than simply storing vehicles, adding insulation via an insulated garage door can make the space comfortable to work in year around. Even if you use your garage for storage, an added layer of insulation can make retrieving items or doing simple tasks much more bearable in the hot or cold weather.
Enjoy reduced noise
Whether it be from passing traffic or kids playing outside, noise is a problem for many homeowners. An insulated garage door can help prevent that noise from penetrating your garage and reverberating around your home. This is especially nice at night when you’re trying to rest peacefully.
Improved vehicle performance
Vehicle engines undergo the most wear when they are cold, so the warmer they are kept at night, the better. Especially during the colder months of the year, engine temperatures can take a few minutes to come up to temperature, and any way to shorten that time will improve the life of your vehicle. An insulated garage door keeps your vehicle in a warmer environment, shortens warm-up times, and lengthens engine life.
