Is the door worth it?

26/10/2015

At Huddersfield Garage Doors, we have been doing some research into the multiple benefits of having insulated Garage Doors.

Their popularity has grown massively over the past few years with more people looking to get more from their garages, but with inflated costs for having the insulation, do you actually get a saving?

If the garage door is a long time invest, of over about 10 years, you will certainly see a saving on your energy bill costs, this saving will go up if your garage is a lean to and is connected to main room in the house where heat may escape.

If you are just looking to replace the garage door and may be considering selling the home in a few months, you are unlikely to reap the financial and heat saving benefits yourself, although it could add some money to the value of your home.

A recent study in America has also concluded that a lot of people are under the wrong illusions as to the values of insulated garage doors and how they really work. Some people assumed they would keep the garage at a constant temperature all year round. This is certainly not the case, although it does help to keep it cooler in the summer and then warmer in the winter.

Garage Doors have a number of functions with the priority the ability to securely store your items in your garage. If you would like to know more about the number of different types of garages we have, please do not hesitate to contact one of our team on 01484 829 612.
