Though it may seem obvious, many people fail to realize that their garage door is actually the largest door and opening to their home. As such, it can have a tremendous bearing on energy loss and overall thermal home efficiency.
At the Overhead Door Company of Lexington, we understand how different garage door types affect your home’s efficiency, and we help our customers choose a door that’s right for their needs. This includes thermal efficiencies, too.
As you shop for different garage doors, you may notice that they have different R-values. R-values help consumers know the insulating rating of the door ahead of purchase. A higher R-value indicates better insulating capabilities.
Whether you’re interested in steel, wood, or vinyl, there are high efficiency options available to you. We offer insulated steel doors, Courtyard Collection wooden doors, as well as all the typical vinyl door options, all of which provide advantages with regard to energy efficiency.
Beyond that, for customers who want windows in their garage door, we recommend ones with low-emissivity coatings and glazes to decrease thermal-related problems. Plus, our professional installation ensures that air gaps will be minimized by proper seals and weather-strips.
Over the long run, the garage door you select can make a big difference in your home’s overall efficiency. Let us help you make a wise decision and make sure it’s installed safely and properly.
