Insulated Garage Doors: A Wise Investment
At Ellis & Parrish Overhead Doors, we want you to be 100% satisfied with your garage door installation. That’s why we highly recommend adding extra layers of insulation to your garage doors. When choosing a new garage door for your home, the color, material, panel design, and window layout may be at the forefront of your mind. However, our job is to consider your garage door’s overall functionality and long-term effectiveness. Insulated garage doors offer numerous advantages we don’t want you to miss out on!
Insulated Garage Doors vs Non-Insulated Garage Doors
Helps keep your garage cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Save money with temperature regulation and reduce the wear and tear on your HVAC system.
Heat escapes the garage during winter and enters during summer, increasing energy bills and forcing your HVAC system to work harder. The risk of needed HVAC repairs increases.
Extra insulation reduces the noise entering or leaving the garage, which is helpful for those using their garage as a work or living space.
|Less effective noise control, which is especially crucial for homes located near busy streets, airports, or industrial areas.|
Insulated garage doors are able to withstand extreme temperatures. They are heavier and thicker than non-insulated doors, which adds structural support.
|Without the extra support additional layers of insulation provide, non-insulated doors run the risk of bending and warping, decreasing their overall longevity.|
|Insulation helps keep the interior of the garage at a consistent temperature.||Uneven temperature distribution and hot/cold drafts cause discomfort.|
|Potential homebuyers view insulated garage doors as a positive feature, and their benefits increase property value.||Property value decreases due to the disadvantages such as decreased energy efficiency and increased noise.|
|Insulation lowers the risk of condensation build-up inside the door, which leads to rust and mold growth.||Rust, corrosion, and mold due to condensation will weaken and decrease the garage door’s lifespan.|
Reduce your carbon footprint with insulated garage doors that lower your home’s energy consumption.
|Poor insulation and air leaks cause higher energy consumption leading to an increased carbon footprint.|
Types of Garage Doors That Can Be Insulated

Yes, you read that right! Ellis & Parrish even offers insulated glass garage doors. Depending on the door, the insulation is either added directly to the frame or gas with a low-emissivity coating is added between the glass panels. Insulation in the frame ensures the view from the glass door isn’t obstructed, and the low-e coating reflects heat back into the garage. Both are great options.
