Common Problems That Insulated Garage Doors Encounter And How To Solve Them


In the daily use of garage doors, homeowners will more or less find that their garage doors have some defects, but they don’t know how to solve these problems. Here I will answer and suggest some questions.

When encountering problems with garage doors, many homeowners tend to replace the garage door, because the garage door has been used for many years before it is damaged or has major problems. Therefore, when homeowner finds problems, they tend to replace the garage door, changing the style to bring freshness, according to a study by LiftMaster, more than half of the homeowners use the garage door as the main entrance and exit, so a good and practical garage door has become the focus of the house.

The garage door is a garage door that directly faces the outside world, so the garage door often encounters various problems. Next, I will explain the problems.


Problem 1:When the outdoor temperature changes, the indoor temperature also changes greatly.


In winter or in summer, some garages will become cold or hot, but there will still be another group of homeowners whose garages have a relatively stable temperature in winter or summer.

What is the reason?

This is because your garage door has no thermal insulation performance and no insulation layer!

According to Remodeling Magazine, an insulated garage door can mean the difference between the outside temperature and the temperature inside your garage in the winter or summer, almost 20 degrees Fahrenheit!

CHI Garage Doors offers two types of insulation: polystyrene and polyurethane. Both materials can improve the insulation of your garage door, but there is a difference between the two. Polystyrene provides adequate insulation at a very low price, but polyurethane is denser and a superior insulator.



Problem 2: High energy bills in the winter and summer


Many houses have part of the living room next to the garage, so when the air conditioner is turned on in the summer or winter, it will also be affected by the temperature in the garage. It can be said that the garage door is a buffer between the living room and the outside, but if your garage door is not insulated, the temperature in your garage is not much different from the outdoor temperature, so the temperature of the garage door will directly affect the temperature of the living room. Generally, the air conditioner will enter the standby state after the indoor temperature reaches the set value, and will not consume energy. However, when the indoor temperature is low (or high), the temperature in the garage is high (or low). In this way, the temperature in the garage will continue to affect the indoor temperature, reducing the standby time of the air conditioner and increasing energy consumption. Research shows that homeowners with insulated garage doors can save up to 20% in energy losses.


Problem 3 The sound of the garage door opening and closing is too loud


An insulated garage door can greatly reduce the noise generated when the garage door is in operation. The insulation material has a very good sound insulation effect, which can isolate the creaking sound generated when the garage door is in operation, which can effectively alleviate this problem.


Problem 4 The situation of debris hitting the garage door


Many homeowners whose houses are not far from the road or the playground, often have to face the situation of debris hitting the garage door, which may be stones or basketballs. At this time, an insulated garage door is a very good choice. Insulated garage doors are much stronger than non-insulated garage doors, so they have much better tolerance and recovery capabilities when encountering debris!
