Install A Garage Door Seal: Save On Energy Costs

Aug 17, 2007
Many people with garages do not realize that their garage door can actually make your energy costs go up. Especially if you do not have a garage door seal, if your garage is attached to your house, when you open your back door, the heat can escape out of your door. This makes your air conditioner or heater work overtime. If you have a door seal, the heat or air conditioning gets trapped in your garage. It will save you money in the long run and that alone makes it a great investment.

Garage door sealant can be found at any hardware or home improvement store. Just look on the internet at the popular home improvement sites. Most of them are easy to apply and you can even apply them yourself. If you want to ensure that the job is done correctly, however, hire someone to do the job for you. Garage door sealant will seal up your door so that there's no space between the door and the ground. This not only traps the air, it also has other benefits.

Keep Unwanted Pests Out

A door seal can even keep pests out of your garage. Rodents, such as mice and rats, only need about a half inch space to be able to enter your garage. Rodents can eat through your sheetrock and they can do even worse damage than that. Door seals can keep bats out, too. Anyone who's been attacked by a bat in their garage knows the value of a good garage door seal.

With energy costs rising so much nowadays, people are looking for any way possible to keep them as low as possible. For this reason, more and more people are paying to have garage door seals installed on their garages. Especially in the winter time, a heated garage is like no other place on earth for gathering with friends or working on your latest hobby or project. Likewise, in the summer time, there is nothing like a cool garage to work on your car or whatever else you do in your garage.

Install a door seal on your garage door today and see what a difference it makes in your energy costs and you will love how it keeps unwanted pests away. If you have a garage with a garage door, then you will want a door seal. No garage should be without one.
