Bundle-Up Your Garage From The Cold
Although the official start to winter is still a awhile away, much of the country is already experiencing winter-like temperatures and will be after the next several months – knowing the UK!. If you haven’t already, now is the time to think about ways to increase your home’s thermal efficiency.
A great place to start is with your home’s garage door, which is opening and closing several times a day, essentially acting as a front door for many families. In most homes, the garage door is not only your house’s largest single opening, but it also borders living space, like a family room or bedroom, where temperature-controlled comfort is a must.
So how do you improve thermal efficiency? For starters, install an insulated garage door. For homeowners living in climates with the most severe temperatures, making a decision based on R-Value is of the utmost importance. The R-value is a standard of measurement in thermal efficiency. The higher a product’s R-value, the greater its insulating properties. The greater a garage door’s insulating properties, the better it will be at not only keeping out cold in the winter, but also heat in the summer.
If you’re looking for high quality construction and greater thermal efficiency then you are best going for the insulated steel garage door from Doormatic. Mainly due to the fact that the thermal constructed types all consist of a layer of foamed insulation that ensures fantastic thermal efficiency. If you are looking for even greater thermal efficiency, you can choose our Thermacore doors that feature thermal seals that are layered in between each section to provide even more protection from heat loss.
Doormatic’s Thermacore® doors not only feature superior thermal construction, but they’re beautiful too. Each features wood grain embossment in a standard or flush panel design. The doors are also available in a variety of colors to match your home. If you are looking for further design options or prefer the look of a carriage house door, consider the Courtyard Collection®, which includes a Thermacore interior.
