The garage is often a dark place, only illuminated by the occasional window and artificial light sources. Of course, you can always open the door to let daylight in, but what about adding windows when you get your garage door replaced? Here are a few things to keep in mind when considering changing the lighting in your garage.
Garages house many of our more expensive investments. Your bikes, your cars, and even your holiday decorations often have a home in the garage. While windows will increase the amount of natural light, they also pose a security risk. Anyone who looks through them will know what you’re storing in your garage and whether you’re home or not.
Windows may provide tons of natural light, but they can also give thieves an idea of when you’re home and when you’re away. Windowless garages prevent thieves from walking past and seeing if your car is home or if you’re out on the town. While theft shouldn’t be a problem in most neighborhoods, it never hurts to be cautious.
Windowless garage doors can provide better insulation. Over time, windows may warp and crack, letting the changing outside weather into your garage. If you have an attached garage, the added insulation will help lower the ambient temperature in the garage. This can directly impact the overall cost of your heating and cooling bills.
