Have you ever checked the bottom weather seal on your garage door? We are guessing no. That is okay, we understand. We wouldn’t expect most people to check that or even think to check it because they are not garage door repair men or women. That is why we recommend you have maintenance and safety checks done on your door at least once every 6 months to ensure that we check everything and know that your garage door is working right and that is safe.
One of the things that we check in our 25 point inspection is the bottom weather seal. Again, you may not understand why this would be an important thing to check, but we will tell you! The weather stripping on the bottom of the door makes it so that a) the door closes fully and securely and b) keeps the temperature inside the garage more even.
It is so important to know that your garage door is securely closing; this will help you know that you don’t have to worry as much about someone being able to easily break in. It can also save you a lot of money to keep the temperature inside your garage a more average temp. If the weather seal isn’t good anymore it will let all the hot air from the summer heat into your garage and all the cool air from your air-conditioning inside your home out, which can cause a lot of strain on your air-conditioning unit and cost you a lot more on your electrical bill.
If you aren’t sure how to check the weather seal, that is okay! Just give us a call here at Fort Worth Garage Doors.
