How to make your garage more environmentally friendly in 2022

We look at ways you can make your garage space greener.

With energy bills rising and global warming becoming more of a daily news item, one thing is clear - we can each do our bit to help the planet. The best place for many of us to start is at our very own home and in a space often overlooked, the garage.

Insulate your garage doors

Most standard garage doors are basic and flimsy. A well insulated aluminium garage door will help prevent heat loss from your garage space. In addition, it helps stop cold air and draughts from entering the garage - this is even more important when you have a garage that is attached to your property.

Energy efficient light bulbs

Interior and exterior lights in and around the garage are often overlooked and should ideally be fitted with energy-efficient LED lights to save energy. LED lights are more likely to offer better performance too, so this offers practical benefits too.

Use energy efficient construction materials and doors

Did you know, aluminium is a recyclable, abundant element so choosing aluminium garage doors is a great way to upgrade to a green material, that offers insulation and long lasting. They also look great! Maybe explore the option to add solar panels to the roof if your garage faces south.
