Energy Awareness Month: Selecting an Energy-Efficient Garage Door

  Back to News

  WAUSEON, OHIO - 09/29/2017 (

What's the largest single door in a home? The garage door. When it comes to choosing a garage door, energy efficiency should play a role in the selection process.

            "Energy Awareness Month in October is a good time for homeowners to learn how to choose a garage door that minimizes air leakage and has solid energy efficiency benefits," says Kent Nafziger, vice president of sales and marketing at Haas Door. "Having a garage door with exceptional air infiltration seals can help keep out the wind and cold temperatures, no matter how much Mother Nature throws at it."

            Nafziger recommends homeowners seeking the most energy efficient garage door possible look at the R-value of the door. For example, a 2000 Series door features a calculated R-value of 17.66, making it exceptionally efficient. The two-inch thick galvanized steel doors feature dense CFC free polyurethane foam insulation to help achieve the impressive R-value. Enhanced air infiltration seals between the door sections restrict air movement to increase the energy efficiency of each door.

            "These doors are extraordinarily durable and energy-efficient," says Nafziger. "Independent testing shows the air infiltration seals for these doors exceed the industry's ASHRAE 90.1 Standard when installed with a standard bottom seal and a commonly available rigid/flexible vinyl door stop. The construction of this door makes it a valuable home asset for anyone living in an area experiencing strong winter weather."

            Manufactured in the USA, the 2000 Series doors feature a full thermal break in the construction of the two-inch thick doors. This eliminates metal-to-metal-contact and limits the transfer of temperature. The attractive doors are available with either wood grain or stucco embossment and come in 17 color choices with a wide range of sizes and panel options. Windows can also be incorporated into the garage door panels.

            "When looking for a garage door to withstand the brutal winter weather of Wisconsin or the sizzling summer temperatures in Texas, this garage door stands out as a winner," says Nafziger. "Homeowners who do their homework will discover it's important to select a garage door that provides energy efficiency values married with durability and designer appeal."

            Haas Door is located in Wauseon, Ohio, where the company manufactures steel and aluminum residential and commercial garage doors. The family-owned company holds memberships in IDA and DASMA, and produces products that are sold throughout North America. For more information on Haas Door, visit
