If you’re looking to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient, opting for garage door insulation can make all the difference. As well as saving on heating and cooling costs, insulation acts as a two-way noise barrier, making for a quieter garage.

Nine out of 10 people use their garage for more than just storing cars. It’s worth considering the flexibility your garage space can offer – Is it just used as a car park? Perhaps you’ve considered converting it into a home gym or well-proportioned study? A perfectly organised playroom for the little kids? Or a cosy chill-out zone for the big kids? Below we look at how insulating your garage door can provide a much more comfortable space for the whole family.

Energy efficiency

Insulation acts as a barrier to heat flow and is essential for keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer.

According to the Australian Government’s YourHome website, heating and cooling account for 40 per cent of household energy use, making it the largest energy user in the average Australian home.

Garage door insulation allows for increased energy efficiency and can help to lower your energy costs. The YourHome site mentions that a well-insulated and well-designed home could cut cooling and heating bills by up to half.

 

Noise reduction

More and more homeowners use their garages for activities other than storing cars; often the space doubles as a workshop, in-home gym or hangout zone for families. Insulated garage doors are much thicker, which means they reduce noise pollution. With an insulated door, you won’t have to worry as much about bothering neighbours when the kids are gaming or playing the guitar. On the other hand, you’ll be less affected by external sounds like road noise and storms while you’re inside your garage.

Garage door insulation also reduces sound transfer to other parts of your home, which is helpful if you have young children or have a bedroom above the garage. An insulated garage door may even provide quieter operation while the door is in motion.

 

Increased comfort

The purpose of garage door insulation is to help regulate the amount of cold and hot air escaping to and from your garage. A more stable, constant temperature makes for a more comfortable environment. If you or your family spend a lot of time in the garage, an insulated garage door is a wise investment. Similarly, if you store extra pantry staples or other food items in the garage, a stable garage temperature is important to ensure they last longer.
