As the cold Utah winter fully sets in and temperatures drop to some of their lowest of the calendar year, your garage door is one of several major tools at your disposal when it comes to keeping various areas of your home warm. One particular consideration for garage doors that tends to be especially valuable this time of year, with this need in mind: Insulation.

At Crawford Door Sales, we’re proud to offer a huge range of residential and commercial garage door installation and repair services for clients around Murray, Sandy and nearby areas, including foam-injected garage doors that represent the latest in modern garage door insulation technology. Our doors come with a solid steel core plus steelfoam skins on the front and back, then polyurethane foam-injected centers that insulate optimally. Across this two-part blog series, let’s look at some of the chief benefits of an insulated garage door, whether it’s winter or any other time of year.

garage door insulation benefits

Energy Efficiency

As you may have already guessed, likely the single largest benefit of insulated garage doors is the energy efficiency they offer. Especially during winter as temperatures drop, an insulated door will help keep your home warmer by preventing heat from escaping through it – and this effect is not limited to just the garage itself, but rather extends to the entire adjacent area of the house.

For instance, if your kitchen or living room shares a wall with the garage, the heat will also be able to pass through that door and help warm up those rooms too. You’ll pay less for energy overall when you have an insulated garage door.

Sound Dampening

One benefit of insulation that’s often overlooked is its ability to dampen sound. If you live in a noisy area with lots of traffic, you know how frustrating it can be to try and relax or have a conversation while constantly hearing loud sounds from outside.

An insulated garage door helps reduce noise transfer by creating an additional barrier between the outside world and your home’s interior. This is especially useful for those who use their garage as a workspace, game room or any other living space.

Improved Comfort

From a personal comfort standpoint, an insulated garage door will also help reduce the temperature differential between your home and the outside. This means you can enjoy a more consistent, comfortable temperature in whatever space is adjacent to your garage – whether it’s the kitchen, living room or even a bedroom.

In addition to this, if you use your garage as a workspace or exercise area, for example, having insulation will make these activities more enjoyable and comfortable. This is because the insulation helps maintain a stable temperature, which can be critical during cold winter months.

In part two of our series, we’ll look at additional areas like durability, vehicle protection and more for insulated garage doors.
