Is Your Garage Door Sabotaging Your Home???s Energy Efficiency?

April 20, 2016

Installing a new garage door can add instant curb appeal to your home. Whether you are simply enhancing the style or a replacing a damaged door, there are many options to choose from for a garage door for your Tulsa area home. One important factor to consider is the energy efficiency of the model you are considering for replacement.

Although you would not be able to tell on appearances alone, a garage door in Tulsa that is more energy efficient provides several benefits. First consider where the garage door is located in your home. If there are bedrooms above it, think about the hot or cold air that comes in, and how that can travel into those spaces.

Attached garages contribute to the airflow going into the adjacent living spaces as well. If you have noticed a difference in temperature in any rooms next to your garage consider exploring if an insulated garage door can help.

From an appearance perspective the efficiency rating of a door generally does not change the look. In fact, there are many different looks you can create from standard white panels to stylish wood grain with or without windows or accents.

There are different levels of energy efficient garage doors in Tulsa to consider. In the description of each option there is usually an R value listed.  You may also see options such as a 1 or 2-layer door that will factor into your decision.

A higher R value signals more insulation – but gaining the right amount for your home can be based on several factors. It is important to research or ask about the ratings – for example an R-16 rating offers more a efficiency than an R-8, but not double as you may expect.

Working with a team of knowledgeable professionals can help you evaluate your choices and decide what your home really needs. This can let you select the garage door that meets your Tulsa area home’s specific design, location and layout.
