Reducing your Energy Bill with your Garage Door
Are you trying to lower your energy bill? Modifying your garage is a fantastic way to do this! Garages can be a real burden on your energy bill due to heat or cold air being lost through the garage door. Here’s some fantastic ways to reduce your energy bill through your garage door, as prepared by the garage door installation experts at Metro GDS Inc Gates & Garage Doors.
WOOD END BLOCKS
Install section end blocks in your garage door to keep insulation materials in place and securing hinges to door ends. Through the use of weather stripping and glued joints, you will make a bond through the exterior and interior metal sheets, creating a weather proof steel. However, since most modern garage doors use steel sheets and steel end caps, a process called thermal bridging can take place, allowing for the easy transfer of heat into or out of the garage door. By using wooden end blocks instead, you will create a thermal break, insuring that heat doesn’t seep in during the Summer, or creep out during the Winter.
