Garage Running a Little Hot? Check Your Weatherstripping
A hot, stuffy garage in El Dorado Hills tends to mean there’s not enough insulation on the garage door or the weatherstripping has worn out. Check the base of your garage door. A rubbery strip runs along the entire bottom of the door in order to help provide insulation from the outside environment and temperatures. This strip can quickly become worn and require replacing with a new one. If you notice cracks, tearing, or any other damage then it’s time to buy a replacement. You can usually find them in your local hardware store.
Fortunately, this is a fairly easy DIY repair. But it’s important to accurately measure the garage door weatherstripping you are going to replace. It’s always good to have a little extra then not enough, since you can always trim off the excess. This repair job pretty much involves removing the old garage door weatherstripping from your garage door and reattaching the new. All it requires is a Phillips head screwdriver.
If the new weatherstripping doesn’t improve the garage temperature, try a DIY garage insulation project.
