Insulated Vs Non-Insulated Garage Doors

Depending on where you live and what you are trying to accomplish with your garage door, you will either need an insulated or a non-insulated garage door. Neither type of garage door is inherently better than the other, but one is better than the other in many situations. Insulated garage doors are typically a fair bit more expensive than non-insulated garage doors, but they can actually be cheaper than non-insulated garage doors in the long run. This might sound confusing, but we will explain how you can actually save money with an insulated garage door.

In some climates, wintertime is a very cold time of year. To keep your house warm, you will spend hundreds or thousands of dollars heating your house. While this is good, your efforts can be spoiled by a non-insulated garage door. A garage door is a very large part of your house, and it can allow cold air to enter your house, and it can allow warm air to leave your house. As a result, you will need to spend more money heating your house, which can add up a lot over time.

If you live in a climate that is warm year round, or if you have a detached garage door, then this is not a problem for you. You should be able to get away with using a non-insulated garage door and you won’t have any problems. Non-insulated garage doors are the same as insulated garage doors in terms of looks and performance (aside from heat retention), but they are much less expensive than insulated garage doors are.

So unless you live in a cold climate, we highly recommend non-insulated garage doors to take care of your garage door needs.
