When you think about insulating your home, you might begin to think about the walls and ceilings inside your main living areas. Although your garage might not be a room you spend substantial time in, insulating your garage can help lead to energy savings and increase the value of your home. While many garages were once just a place to park your car and store items, they are now often used as an extension of your home. Improving your current garage insulation can create a more livable space for you and your family while helping reduce your energy bill.
Why You Should Insulate Your Garage
Your garage is likely one of the largest rooms in your home. It is also likely one of the most used (and most neglected) rooms in your home. If you have one attached to your home, it’s likely radiating heat into your house in the summer—and making attached rooms feel cold in the winter. There are several benefits that a well-insulated garage can bring to your home.
What Are the Benefits of Insulating Your Garage
With improved insulation, your garage can stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This can make it a more usable space throughout the year for various purposes, such as a workshop, fitness center, or extra living space for you and your family. When it comes to storing items in your garage, temperature plays a crucial role in maintaining the condition and longevity of your belongings. With spray foam insulation, you can avoid mold/mildew growth, rust/ corrosion, and pests in your boxes and storage. You can use garages for much more than just keeping your vehicle. Spray foam insulation ensures you can enjoy the space for any activity, no matter what the weather might be.
Spray foam insulation not only helps to keep your garage warm, but it also provides sound insulation. It reduces the amount of noise that enters your garage from outside and prevents sound from escaping the garage. This is especially helpful if you use your garage for activities that generate noise. For example, an insulated attached garage minimizes the disturbance caused by your spouse’s early morning ignition or the garage door motor on their way to work. Additionally, it opens possibilities for creating a tranquil office space, a serene workshop, a music studio, or other budget-friendly transformations.
Increased Home Value
Spray Foam insulation adds value to any residential property. Improving the overall energy efficiency and useability of your garage will contribute to an increase in the property value of your home. Insulation upgrades are one of the energy-efficient home improvements that have a strong return on investment (ROI) if you sell your home.
Your New Space
Having an insulated space to work, relax, or spend time is a plus for many families. With spray foam insulation installed in your garage, you will open a substantial amount of space for storage, workspace, extra family space, or anything else.
