There’s insulation in your home’s walls and attic, why not have it in your garage door? An insulated garage door from Precision Garage Door of Columbia can provide increased energy efficiency, temperature regulation, and superb soundproofing for your garage.
Benefits of Insulated Garage Doors
One of the best ways to keep your garage warmer in winter and cooler in summer is to invest in an insulated garage door.
Garage door insulation typically comes in two forms: polyurethane insulation or polystyrene insulation, depending on the model and material of the garage door.
Polyurethane is a foam insulation that is injected between the skins of the door and is often used in steel garage doors, though also in some wooden garage doors. This type of insulated garage door offers the highest insulation value.
Polystyrene insulation is made into panels and incorporated into the construction of an insulated garage door, often secured with a metal backing. Garage door weather stripping also works to reduce energy loss. In addition, garage door insulation typically makes a door quieter and has an increased soundproofing ability.
How do you know if a garage door is insulated?
A garage door’s level of insulation is indicated by its R-value. The higher the R-value is, the greater the insulation has the power to resist the escape of heat.
Almost all insulation has an R-value, which makes it easy to compare one against the other and R-values are the same no matter where you buy the insulation from. You can typically find a garage door’s R-value on its product page or in its brochure – see the “Brochures & Specifications” tab on this short-panel product page for an example.
