Keep reading to learn about the next couple of steps:
#3. Inspect and fix or replace the weather stripping.
The weather stripping on the frame of your garage door is responsible for keeping the cold air out of your garage, but when it starts to wear out, it doesn’t work as it should. It’s always a good idea to check the weather stripping before winter hits. If it looks brittle or old, fix it or replace it.
#4. Make sure your garage is properly insulated.
If your garage isn’t insulated as it should be, warm air can actually escape from your home into your garage, which will lead to higher energy bills. If your garage isn’t insulated, add insulation to its walls, as well as the garage door.
#5. Think about installing a garage door heater.
If you want your garage to be as comfortable as possible, then you need to do more than just keep the wind and snow out, you need to add a little heat. Garage heaters are helpful in many ways, especially if you use your garage as a work space. They can also help to protect your garage door from the extreme door!
