When it comes to improving energy efficiency in your home, many homeowners overlook their garage. However, with a few simple changes, you can enhance the energy efficiency of your garage, reduce energy waste, and potentially save on utility bills. Below, we take a look at some tips and tricks to reduce your garage’s overall carbon footprint.
Sealing Air Leaks
It’s important to identify and seal any air leaks around windows, doors, and utility penetrations in the garage. Use caulk or weatherstripping to seal gaps and cracks. This helps prevent cold air from entering during winter and hot air from infiltrating during summer, improving overall energy efficiency.
Upgrade your garage lighting to energy-efficient alternatives. Replace old incandescent bulbs with energy-saving LED lights. LED bulbs consume less energy, have a longer lifespan, and emit less heat. Additionally, you could consider installing motion sensors or timers to automatically turn off the lights when the garage is not in use, further reducing energy waste.
Consider Insulated Garage Doors
If you’re looking for a more significant improvement, consider upgrading to an insulated garage door. Insulated garage doors are designed with layers of insulation material, providing enhanced thermal resistance. This helps regulate the temperature inside the garage, reducing energy loss and improving energy efficiency. Here at Bullet Garage Doors, we offer our customers insulated garage doors such as sectional and roller doors.
