Insulate your garage door to improve energy efficiency.
When making your home energy efficient, don’t forget about the garage. Garage draughts can blow into your living spaces when connected to your house.
Weatherstripping cracks and gaps around the edges of your garage door will create a tight seal to prevent air from entering or escaping. Insulating your garage door will help regulate the temperature inside the garage, preventing heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer.
Insulating a garage door can be a relatively simple DIY job. The most common insulation materials for garage doors are polystyrene foam panels, reflective foil insulation or a combination of both. Once cut to size, you can attach the insulation with a suitable adhesive. It is well worth the effort as it is a great way to save money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
