A garage can take up quite a bit of extra square footage in a home. Throughout most of the year, it is either too hot or too cold to want to spend any extra time in there. Most people just park their cars, and quickly hustle inside to the main living areas of their home. Aside from parking vehicles, a garage is often used as additional storage from totes of Christmas décor, to bicycles, and more. So when deciding on whether or not you would like to insulate your garage doors, here are our top three reasons we think you should consider it.
- Be Energy Efficient– Having an insulated garage door will help to better regulate the temperature in other areas of your home. Insulating the door will help to shield the inside of the house from the outside, especially during the more extreme temperature months. Every time you open and close your garage door, the outside temperatures enter into your living spaces. As a result, this could increase the heating and cooling utility costs in your home. An insulated door will help to keep your home air system operating much more efficiently.
- Better Use of Space– Just like other areas in your home, insulation increases the functionality in ways that you might not have realized you were benefiting from before. When your garage has a more comfortable environment, you can get better usage from the space, and store more frequently used items more often. Even on bad weather days, the kids can stay warm while playing in the garage, riding the scooter around or kicking a ball back and forth.
- For a Comfortable Hobby Work Space– Having an insulated garage is a perfect environment while working on automobiles, or other hobbies such as wood working and crafts. With the temperature better regulated, more time can be comfortably spent doing the hobbies you love without having to take frequent breaks to cool off, or warm up.
If any of these reasons seem appealing to you, and you would like to have your garage insulated, or if you have any questions, please contact us today. Remember, just like you would want to insulate your basement, attic and storage areas in your home, your garage should also be included. If the house’s exteriors are all properly insulated, it will make for a more comfortable living environment all around.
