    green garage doors

    Green is the name of the game, and everyone is looking for ways to make every part of their life and home more green. The benefit to going green with your garage door is the money savings you can enjoy.

    Below are a few ways you can make your garage door eco friendly, and save money while you do it!

    Eco-Friendly Garage Door Materials

    Wood and steel are the best choices for a green garage door. They are both durable and do well in a variety of temperatures. Wood and steel doors come in a variety of sizes and styles as well.

    Composite material is also a good option, especially on a budget. Since they are made with recycled materials, they are also very eco-friendly as well!

     

     

    Eco-Friendly Garage Door Insulation

    Insulating your garage door is easy, and inexpensive. It’s also a great way to go green since it saves on energy bills! It helps regulate the temperature inside your garage door, so for attached garages this is great. It can help keep the interior of your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

    Some insulation options include a perforated garage door. This is great for warmer climates, as it allows more light and ventilation to come in to your garage, without compromising your privacy or the security of your garage door.

    Some homes have their HVAC system run into their garage. If this is the case, not only insulating the door but also the walls of the garage is a good idea. This adds a protective layer, which will help reduce your heating and cooling costs.

    Garage Door Maintenance

    Part of any garage door maintenance routine should include checking the weather stripping on your garage door for any tears or cracks. Replace any bad parts quickly. Air can come through those cracks, and not only counteract your insulation if you have any, but lets cooler or hot air (depending on the season) into your garage which can affect the temperature inside your home.

    Replacing the weather stripping is easy and can be done as a quick weekend DIY project. Or you can call a professional to do it!
