When it was time for me to replace my garage door, I called several garage door specialists to get a quote for the installation and haul away fee.
- When I started the journey to find a new garage door, I had no idea that there were so many options.
Not only were there different colors and window options, but there were also insulated vs. non insulated doors. The insulated doors caught my attention, because I have a big work bench in the garage that I spend a lot of time at. There’s even a ductless mini split system hanging above it, so I can stay warm during the winter months. I didn’t have any issues with the ductless mini split system itself, but I hated how wasteful it seemed. All the warm air that the ductless mini split system produced, escaped through the poorly insulated walls and garage door. This is when I decided that I was only going to install an insulated garage door. There were multiple levels of insulation, so I opted to get the most insulated option. I spent a lot of time in the garage and I wanted to cut back on my energy consumption. If I installed the highly insulated garage door, I wouldn’t have to rely so heavily on my ductless mini split system. I would still use it to heat the garage while I was out there, but it wouldn’t need to work so hard in order to keep the space heated. The heated air wouldn’t escape so easily with the insulated garage doors!
