TAMPA, FL, April 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- During the summer, Tampa garage doors are notorious for leaking cooled air and creating intensely hot air that is stored up against your home. The experts at Overhead Door Tampa realize that both of these issues can create a third problem - high energy bills - and they wish to help by offering you tips on how to make your home and garage more energy efficient this summer.
How to Keep Your Garage Cool
One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bills is to install an insulated garage door. Doors like this have an easier time keeping temperatures under control within the garage, which in turn helps you avoid having your garage become as much of a leech on the cooling power of your home.
Another option is to install a ventilated garage door. Ventilated doors help your garage to air out and prevent it from suffering from a greenhouse heating effect during the hot summer months.
If you are unable to install an insulated or ventilated door, there are steps you can take to improve the insulating abilities of your current garage. Insulating the walls and ceiling are relatively quick and easy steps to take, and they can make a notable difference.
"Due to the delicate nature of your garage door operator system, you should avoid adding any insulation directly to the garage doors without the supervision and input of one of our trained technicians," says Bob Briesacher, President of Overhead Door Tampa. "If you are not careful, you can destroy the opening mechanisms with added weight."
