Wondering how to optimize your garage door for maximum energy efficiency? When it comes to the energy efficiency in your home, you might be surprised to learn that your garage door plays a big role. “
It’s natural to be concerned about the ‘star rating’ on your refrigerator, washing machine, dishwasher, and dryer – but what about your garage door? In this article, we’ll share 5 ways to optimize your garage door for maximum energy efficiency.
Insulate your garage walls and ceiling
Ok, so this tip isn’t strictly about optimizing your garage door for energy efficiency, but it has the same effect. In fact, adding insulation to your garage walls and ceiling is one of the most impactful ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home.
By having insulation professionally installed in your garage, you can limit the transfer of cold and warm air from the outside, keeping your garage a more stable temperature.
Upgrade your garage door or get it repaired
Old or damaged garage doors can greatly affect the energy efficiency in your home, so assess whether or not you should replace your garage door. Small cracks in your garage door or beneath it allow cold air inside your garage, decreasing the energy efficiency of your home.
So consider upgrading your garage door or getting any cracks repaired as soon as possible. Here at Eastern Garage Doors we offer garage door services and repairs at an affordable price.
Consider replacing your garage door opener
Modern garage door openers are much more energy efficient than older ones, so your garage door opener could also be contributing to a lack of energy efficiency in your home. Modern garage door openers are also typically quieter than older models, and come with lots of high tech features that allow you to control your garage door from anywhere in the world.

Upgrade your garage lighting
Still using those old-school flurescent lights in your garage? They’ll also be contributing to a lack of energy efficiency in your home!
Time to swap them out for a more energy-efficient alternative like LED lights. LED lights use up to 30% less power than fluorescent lights.
