1. Aluminum frame

Aluminum has lightweight, strong corrosion resistance, and excellent light and heat reflection properties. These characteristics can make your garage door more durable and reflect hot sunlight in the summer to make the room cooler. Therefore, if your garage door is often exposed to the sun, a garage door with an aluminum frame can improve the indoor temperature.

However, aluminum also has good thermal conductivity, which means that its thermal insulation performance may not be good. While the aesthetics of this door may make you want to throw on an extra blanket in the winter, if you choose to go with an aluminum door frame, you must be aware that it has a lower R-value, which is a measure of a home's insulation performance. You may be weighing aesthetics against energy savings when choosing this type of door.

It is generally recommended to keep the R-value of your garage door at R-12 or higher to effectively reduce your electricity bill. If you have only a low-rated garage door between your living room or dining room (where temperatures are around 72℉) and the outdoors, your energy costs may be higher.

Although winters don't get colder than in northern Quebec, Canada, that doesn't mean you can't install a California panoramic garage door in your home. The white and crystal windows bring in a lot of natural light, allowing you to enjoy your patio space even in the winter.

Even though your energy bill may increase, you may be able to offset it in other ways, such as using wood or solar panels. Or, you may just like the look of these California-style doors so much that you don't care about the extra cost.

2. Window fogging

During cold weather, other windows in your home may fog up, and Full view garage door are no exception. This is because condensation forms when warm, moist air comes into contact with cold surfaces. This phenomenon can also occur on the outside of a glass filled with ice on a hot day.

No matter how dry the climate, there will always be moisture in the air. For example, cooking, cleaning, showering, and even breathing can add humidity to indoor air. When this moisture touches a cold surface, such as a window, it turns back into liquid water and forms condensation in the form of mist.

To combat this, you can take the following steps:

Lower the thermostat from 72°F to 68°F to reduce the temperature difference between indoors and outdoors.

Use fans to move and disperse high-humidity air, make sure the outdoor vent of the dryer is unobstructed, and use ventilation fans in the bathroom and kitchen.

Use a dehumidifier or air exchanger to reduce indoor humidity. Air exchangers replace moist indoor air with dry winter air.

Consider a wood-burning stove, which dries the air and creates a unique atmosphere.

Avoid drying clothes indoors to reduce excess moisture.

3. Window Options for Full view garage door

Full view garage door have a variety of window options that affect their aesthetics and functionality. For example, choose clear glass or sandblasted glass, depending on privacy needs and aesthetic preferences. If you don’t like clear glass, you can choose sandblasted glass, which allows natural light to diffuse in while also protecting privacy. At night, when the lights are on, sandblasted glass doors look like mysterious lanterns.

Clear and frosted glass aren’t the only options, you can choose glass with different opacities, from completely clear to completely opaque. Each option has different privacy levels to meet different needs.

If you want to improve energy efficiency, you can choose LOW-E argon energy-saving glass windows. These windows lock in warm sunlight in the winter and block heat in the summer, helping to save energy bills.

Safety and durability

Accidents happen, such as windows being broken by rocks or children breaking glass while playing. Choosing tempered glass can increase the durability and safety of your windows. Tempered glass is heated and cooled multiple times, making it 4 to 5 times stronger than ordinary glass, and when it breaks, it becomes blunted small fragments, reducing the risk of injury.
