Whether or not you’re in the market to sell your home, it’s always good to be aware of things that affect how your home is viewed and valued. Energy efficiency in the home is a big thing these days, and can play a rather large part in increasing the assessed value and salability of your home.
Much is, and has been, made, of the features that make your home’s doors and windows energy efficient. With all the attention given to these openings into the main body of your home, it’s easy to overlook what is probably the largest door in your entire home: your garage door. If energy efficiency is any form of consideration for you, however, then it is hardly common sense not to factor the garage door into such considerations; if a tiny leak in a window or house door can significantly affect your home’s energy efficiency, what if the leak were to occur in your much larger garage door?
Using the latest available technologies, the newest insulated garage doors on the market use polyurethane foam insulation to maximize energy efficiency. Experts in Cleveland garage door repair and installation can tell you how effective this type of insulation is. The polyurethane insulation has easily twice the thermal performance of the older polystyrene type of insulation. Customers who’ve had the polyurethane insulation installed as part of garage door repair in Cleveland Ohio can testify to the effectiveness of the insulation, and not only when it comes to conserving heat.
As a product of the construction process, the polyurethane insulation also works wonders in blocking out sounds. If, like so many other Americans, you happen to have your garage located directly under a bedroom, then installing insulated garage doors can help cut down on the noise heard when someone opens or closes the garage doors.
