How To Winterize Your New Hampshire Garage Door
As temperatures drop in Concord, homeowners find themselves preparing for the winter cold with a variety of tasks, including weatherizing their garage. Your garage is a barrier between your home and the elements, and if not properly prepared for the cold, it can dramatically impact your comfort and put your cars and other stored property at risk.
Follow these key steps to efficiently weatherize your garage and garage door to ensure that your home stays warm and your energy bills stay low.
In this blog, the experts at Overhead Door Company of Concord offer four tips to ensure that your garage is ready for the winter cold.
3 Ways To Weatherize Your Garage
Keeping your garage safe from cold weather can make a big difference in your energy usage and overall comfort while protecting your belongings. The three main areas of focus for garage preparation are insulation, weather sealing and garage door maintenance.
Insulation for Your Door & Garage
Insulation is critical for reducing heat loss in your garage during winter. Your best solution is an insulated garage door. Options like the Thermacore® AP Model 850 garage doors ensure efficiency for your HVAC and reduce drafts, pests and noise.
Not ready to replace your door? Consider hiring an insulation contractor to insulate the garage and help minimize the impact of the cold by adding a layer of protection to your garage. Whether you choose fiberglass, spray foam or vinyl, a layer of insulation will improve the temperature of the entire space.
For a simple line of defense against drafts, add weatherstrip seals to the bottom of your garage door during installation or your next tune-up. This easy method of winterization comes in a variety of types and styles to meet the needs of your specific door.
Contact your local garage door contractor to schedule an appointment to add weatherstrips to your garage.
Garage Door Maintenance
As a key part of your home’s exterior, garage door maintenance is one way to ensure that your garage is protected throughout the winter. During a garage door tune-up, a professional will check your door alignment and balance and clean all components.
They’ll also inspect for any cracks or breaks that may let air in and repair them to ensure your garage door has a tight seal.
