Some may have never considered an insulated sectional garage door for their home, while others may believe insulated garage doors are the norm. If you don’t have an insulated garage door, or you don’t know if you have one or not, here are the reasons to consider making your next Clopay® garage door from Halo Overhead Doors an insulated one.
Benefits of Insulated Garage Doors
The most important benefit of insulated garage doors are the energy savings you enjoy. Energy-efficient insulated doors block heat transfer based on their R-value. The higher the R-value, the more significant the barrier to heat transfer.
What this means is that in the summer, it is harder for hot air to get into your garage, and in the winter, it is harder for hot air to escape. If you spend time in your garage, it means a cooler space in the summer and a warmer one in the winter. So, you’ll be less likely to turn on space heaters or fans when working in your garage.
Even if you don’t spend that much time in your garage, hot air can be entering and escaping your home through your garage — unless you have an insulated door leading from your garage to your home. That means your air conditioner is working harder in the summer, and your heater is working harder in the winter.
An insulated garage door lightens that load, resulting in lower energy costs year-round.
That’s not the only benefit of an insulated garage door. They’re also more durable and impact-resistant than non-insulated doors, owing to that extra layer of material in the door. That increased impact resistance can come in handy when accidents happen.
Clopay® Insulated Garage Doors
Clopay® has a variety of garage doors featuring Intellicore® insulation technology. This is a proprietary polyurethane foam that is injected into the door to fill up the door with sound insulation for a stronger, quieter more energy-efficient door, with industry-leading R-values as high as 20.4.
This fantastic insulation is available in a wide range of the Clopay door models we offer, including the CANYON RIDGE® Collection for both Carriage house and contemporary-style doors, the COACHMAN® Collection, the GALLERY® Collection and more. The only difference between the insulated and non-insulated models is that fortifying, energy-saving Intellicore insulation hidden within.
