Why Insulate a Garage
While many people understand the importance of a high-functioning, aesthetically appealing garage door, few think about the garage door insulation. There are many reasons to make sure your garage is better insulated, but one of the most important is energy savings.
Using Your Garage as a Workspace
Not everyone heats their garage, but there are certain situations where it might be necessary. For example, if part of your garage doubles as a workspace, having heat in the garage is vital so you can continue working even in the cold.
The garage often is used for storage of items, some of which aren’t meant to be exposed to extreme temperatures. Often the answer is to store these items elsewhere, but adding more insulation to your garage can at least help reduce extreme temperature fluctuations.
Losing Heat Through an Interior Door
If you have an interior door leading from your garage into your house and it is opened frequently, the garage can become an extension of your homes interior. By adding insulation, you increase the efficiency of your entire home.
Adding an Insulated Garage Door
One of the best ways to insulate your garage, is by replacing your current garage door with an insulated model. An insulated garage door can even pay for itself with the money you save in energy costs.
