When considering garage door replacement in Palatine, have you thought about getting an insulated door? If your garage is attached to your home, insulation can be helpful in controlling heating and cooling costs and reduce your overall energy consumption. This is especially important if you have a room above the garage. Aladdin Doors is here to educate you and help you choose.
An insulated garage door is made of two layers of steel with insulation in between each layer. The higher the “R-Value”, the more insulation there is. Insulation also helps reduce noise and improve security because it makes the door stronger and more durable. Single layer doors have no added insulation, while double layer doors come with polystyrene insulation. Triple layer doors can have either polystyrene or polyurethane insulation. Let me explain.
TYPES OF INSULATION
Polyurethane – Provides superior temperature control, energy efficiency, and long life.
R-Values from 12.9 to 22.2. Steel gauge 27 or 20.
Polystyrene – For demanding conditions when energy efficiency and value is vital.
R-Values from 5.6 to 12.15. Steel gauge 27, 25, 24 or 20.
Economy – A good option when economy and reliability in a lighter gauge garage door is important.
R-Value 6.6. Steel gauge 25, 24 or 20.
