It isn’t necessarily common knowledge that having your garage door properly insulated can actually save you money not just in the winter but in the summer as well. We know that summer is right around the corner and it can get really hot really fast. Insulating your garage door will actually help keep the heat out of your garage. This will, in turn, keep more of the heat out of your house. This will more than likely save you a lot of money on your electric bill.
When the garage door isn’t insulated the hot air will make your garage extremely hot and that hot air will seep into your home making the whole house a lot warmer and harder to keep cool. This is also the issue of keeping your garage door open during the day. When the temperatures are really high it is definitely the best option to keep the door closed and only open it when absolutely necessary. If possible, only open it early in the morning or in the evening when temperatures aren’t as scorching. If you do this in conjunction with properly insulating the door you will thank yourself over and over during the summer when you feel great in your home, your air conditioner doesn’t break from over use, and you electric bill is lower!
