Why You Should Invest in an Insulated Garage Door

Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Cincinnati, Ohio knows the value of an insulated garage door.  Due to the low temps in Cincinnati and frequent snow each winter, we suggest our customers install an insulated overhead door or add insulation to their existing door.
Your garage door is part of the exterior of your home.  If it is not insulated, then you are going to have a more difficult time keeping your house warm from the cold or cool in the summer.  In fact, we always say that a garage that is not insulated is similar to leaving the door standing wide open.
Check out the reasons that Garage Door Services of Cincinnati, Ohio encourage you to get an insulated garage door.

Energy Conservation

Insulated Garage Door
If your garage door is insulated then you’ll conserve more energy.  The less you spend on your energy bills, the more money you will save. Garages are not included in what is considered living space.   Often, they have the most air gaps of any part of the house, making the garage the least energy efficient part of a building.  
Garage doors that are uninsulated allow cold air into rooms that are adjacent to the garage.  If your door has insulation then you are able to warm up the temperature of your garage.  You’ll find this helpful, because it reduces the amount of energy that is necessary to keep the rest of your home warm.

Greater Durability

Insulated garage doors are often made stronger and thicker than just a one layer, normal overhead door.  Wear and tear will happen and a better assembled door will better stand the test of time.
Most insulated doors are made with either steel or aluminum frames.  Since the frame is designed with insulation inside, the door is less likely to suffer from damages such as dents and scratches due to the strength of the product.  Older doors without insulation are more susceptible to these damages from cars, bicycles, balls and the like.

Better for Vehicles

An insulated garage door helps protect your vehicles.  Obviously having your car inside an insulated garage means it’s out of the freezing temps.
Cold weather can take a toll on cars in several ways such as:

  •        Thicker engine and brake fluids
  •        Lowers the air pressure in tires
  •        Potential shorter battery life
  •        Low temperatures cause your car to work harder in order to run.

R-Values measure insulation

R-Value-Equation-Web1
An R-value is used to explain an insulated door’s resistance to heat transfer either in or out.  A zero rating means there is no insulation in the door at all.
The R-value of your door is figured by the thickness of insulation.  You’ll find that it’s best to have a higher rating so that less heat escapes through the door.  When selecting your garage door’s R value, consider the info below.
R-values of:

  •        0-5 means none to minimal
  •        5-8 is insulated some
  •        9-13 is well insulated
  •        13-19 has excellent insulation

Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Cincinnati, Ohio encourages you to get an insulated door for your home.  You’ll never regret this decision and find that it is beneficial for your car, energy bill and the longevity of your door’s appearance and performance.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
