Garage Door Weather Seal
Small changes to your door can have a huge impact on your energy savings. Just a small 1/8th inch gap around a 14' x 14' garage door is equivalent to a 63 sq in hole in your wall.
Sealing the perimeter of your door helps save energy, and adds a finer look to the appearance of your shop. Weather seals come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and materials, choosing which type is best for you or your warehouse depends on your budget, and the quality your expecting.
Brush Seals are a great way to go, the seals are made from nylon strands embedded in an aluminum case. The brush seals are one of the most effective methods to reduce drafts because the material is flexible up to 70 below, and since the seal itself is a composition of small strands it conforms to uneven surfaces creating a nice uniform seal.
Rubber weather seals are the next step up, they are usually more expensive however the material has some qualities that actually keeps your money in your wallet in the long run. Rubber seals last much longer, do not contract or expand with seasonal temperature differences, and small rodents have a difficult time chewing through rubber. typically you can find rubber weather stripping for the bottom of your garage doors
Weather Stripping that is made of vinyl are very economical, and seal the door very well, but the life-span of vinyl is the shortest out of the seal materials available.
Seal Up Your Garage Door and enjoy the savings.
