The Pros & Cons of Insulating Your Garage Door

Whether you’re looking to retrofit or considering the option of adding garage door insulation to a new purchase, there are a few things that should be considered in the decision-making process. Is it worth the additional expense of insulating? Or will a quality garage door suffice for your home?

How garage door insulation can make a difference

If you have a garage that is attached to your home, insulation can make all the difference. Though it’s often overlooked, when you insulate a garage attached to your home, it’s the same broad concept as insulating a bedroom — or any other room that can save you money on heating and cooling bills. Garage door insulation can also affect the temperature in the rest of your house, keeping it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. 

Benefits of insulating a garage door

Whether your garage is attached or detached from your home, there are a number of benefits to incorporating insulation into your garage door. Insulation is used in homes and garages to protect the room from extreme temperatures. If you use your garage to store materials that can be potentially ruined by exposure to harsh climates, insulation can work to protect them. Another benefit for those who use their garage as an additional workspace or studio is that insulating your garage door can help to reduce — and in some cases eliminate — external noise, allowing you the freedom to concentrate without interruption.

Is insulation worth the extra cost?

If your garage is a major part of your daily life or a connected part of your home, then incorporating insulation into your new garage door is definitely worth the expense. Insulating a garage door may require an additional bit of investment to begin with — but considering that it lengthens the lifespan of your garage door and makes your garage a usable space all year round, we think that it is worth it in the long run. Insulation also provides additional protection to your garage door and any items contained within your garage space.
