Here are some tips to make sure your garage door is as efficient as possible! Check out the infographic below for a checklist of items to focus on to maximize efficiency.
Just like the rest of your house, it’s important to insulate your garage and garage door properly. It’s important to make sure the door itself is insulated, the seal between floor and walls is insulated, outlets should be insulated, and the garage walls should be insulated.
