Benefits of an Insulated Garage Door

Since your garage door is one of the first things that will be noticed about your house, it makes an enormous difference to your home. A quality garage door also adds to the value of your home. But did you know that by choosing an insulated garage door, you can also save money, protect your belongings, and increase your energy efficiency? Here are just a few of the benefits of an insulated garage door.

Keeping the Heat

Most people use their garages for more than just storage and parking vehicles. It may also be used for arts and crafts hobbies or as a workstation. You will be moving groceries, pets, children and other family members through your garage on a daily basis. You can keep your garage a lot warmer by having an insulated garage door. Plus, your car will be much warmer on those cold winter mornings.

Energy Efficient

Having an insulated garage door creates a more energy-efficient home. Garages actually have completely different construction standards than the rest of your home. Garages are usually one of the least energy-efficient spaces due to their gaps and air leaks. This allows more cold air to get into the rest of your home and can keep your heat running nonstop. The insulation will increase temperatures in your homes while saving you money and energy.


Anytime you are not driving your car, it’s in your garage. It’s important to protect against extreme temperatures. Cold weather can affect your car’s battery life, fluids, tires, and wiring systems. An insulated garage door will keep your car running properly when it might otherwise break down. Additionally, fertilizers, paint, motor oil, and cleaning supplies tend to last longer when they are protected from exposure to the elements. Overall, everything in your garage will be better off with an insulated garage door.


Dents and other damages to the surface of your garage door caused by children, pets, extreme weather, and other equipment can decrease your home’s appeal and eventually cause the door to malfunction. Insulated garage doors are more durable and resistant to all forms of damage because of their multiple layers of steel, aluminum, and insulation. Their ability to keep warmth inside your garage also protects the opener, spring, and other components. This will save you money on maintenance fees in the long run.

There are many benefits that come with having an insulated garage door. It will increase the overall value of your home and give it more of an appeal. Plus, it protects your vehicles and other belongings in your garage from the effects of cold weather. If you’re interested in an insulated garage door, contact Behm Design today.
