Where is the best place on a garage to install a window?
The window section can appear at the top-most portion of the garage door or the one directly below it. The reason for this is that with the window set at a higher slot, there will be better lighting in the space. Also from a security perspective, the higher the window, the more preferable.
If I want to open the door manually, how do I do it?
You have to pull the opener's cord. Do this only if the door is fully closed. If the opener gets released when the door is halfway or even slightly open, it's likely to slam closed, which may pose a danger to anyone nearby at the time. After disengaging the opener, you can open the door manually.
Should I get an insulated garage door?
Considering the size of your garage door gives you a good indication of how much heat can be lost through this opening. If your garage is attached to your house, or if you use it as an office, a home gym or a workshop, then this could impact on your energy bill. An insulated door is an excellent way to mitigate this, as it will reduce heat transfer and make it easier for your HVAC unit to maintain the indoor temperature you desire.
