Looking for most energy efficient garage/workshop door option
I want to build a very energy efficient 24’x30′ detached workshop. The workshop will have a single 10’wx10’h garage/shop door as well as a standard 3’w entry door and a couple windows. I will be spending a lot of time in the shop year round but the garage/workshop door will only be opened once a week at most.
I know there are manufacturers that sell insulated garage doors but I still feel like there is too much thermal bridging and air infiltration around the frame and between the panels.
Is there a more energy efficient alternative than a insulated garage door? Maybe a sliding or hinged barn door?
What are you guys in the great white north using for a energy efficient workshop you spend 6 to 8 hours a day in.
