Here are two situations in which you should consider getting an automatic pedestrian door for your garage.

You've set up a DIY workshop in the garage

If you love to do DIY projects and have decided to set up a DIY workshop in your garage, then you'd probably find it helpful if the door of the garage was an automatic pedestrian one because it would probably make utilising the garage for this purpose considerably easier.

For example, if your projects require you to lug furniture that you want to repair into the garage, or to carry bulky DIY supplies into this space, then consider having a door that opens automatically, or via a remote as you then wouldn't need to lay these materials down on the ground to open the door.

Furthermore, if during the colder seasons you are doing DIY projects in the garage and need to go back and forth from the house to this workshop quite regularly, being able to enter and leave the garage via a door that is the size of a house door will mean that you'll let less cold air into the garage when you leave or enter it. This is important if, like most garages, yours isn't well insulated and gets chilly in the cold months. You might find it hard to stay warm enough in this space to do your DIY work if the garage is being filled with large amounts of freezing cold air every time you need to pop in or out of it.

You want to create a living space in the garage

Automatic pedestrian doors can also be useful in instances where homeowners have decided to use their garages as living spaces. If you'd like to create a living space in your garage, then you should definitely consider getting an automatic pedestrian door for it. This type of door will not only make the garage look more like a residential room, it will also be far less noisy and cumbersome to open.

For instance, if you're watching television or taking a nap in this room and your spouse decides to enter through the standard garage door, the creaking and clanging noise that they'll make whilst opening and closing it will be highly disruptive. Contrastly, if the door is a pedestrian door and it opens automatically, it will make far less noise when anyone enters through it. Furthermore, with an automatic version of this pedestrian door, you can easily lock it from the comfort of the seat, sofa or bed you've put in this room after anyone leaves, or if you forget to manually close it after entering this space.
