Finding The Right Garage Door Insulation

Garage door insulation has a dual purpose; it prevents heat from escaping out of the garage, which reduces energy costs during the winter. It also prevents heat from penetrating the garage door, keeping the garage cooler during the hotter months. These reasons make garage door insulation a popular choice for those who spend a lot of time in there. But what kind of insulation is right for certain garages?

There are many different forms of garage door insulation, which fall into two categories, pre-insulated garage doors and garage door insulation kits.

A pre-insulated garage door can be purchased on its own, fully insulated it simply needs to be installed and its ready to go. A separate three-layer insulation kit is also available and is a cost effective alternative to buying a ready insulated door. Made from a compact and highly efficient insulation wadding and foil laminated on both sides, layered insulation makes a noticeable difference to garage temperature.
