Should I Insulate My Garage Attic?

One thing homeowners have in common is that they are always looking for ways to save money on their energy bill. At Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Houston, we can help you with questions about insulating your garage attic. Will insulating your garage attic save you money? We can help you answer that.

The Effects

Ideally, the space above your attic heating and cooling unit would be the most efficient for insulation. You can insulate your attic space and it may stabilize your temperature a little bit. Ultimately, though, if you only insulate the attic space, it won’t give much of a return on your investment.

When Should You Insulate Your Attic Garage?

If the heating and cooling unit in your home extend into your garage, it should be insulated. Then you would not need to worry about additional insulation. If it is not insulated, you would want to add about 14 inches of insulation above those HVAC lines. You should also insulate the attic if there is a room above the garage used for living space. This would keep the natural heat or cold inside the garage but also keep the room above the garage warmer or cooler from the heating and cooling unit.

If you have plans to use your garage other than for storage or for your vehicles, you would want to insulate the area. You may choose one day to turn your garage space into a living space and would want to have the area comfortable. You may consider insulating your attic space if you spend any time at all there even if it is just briefly.

Some Things You Can Do Instead

To be more cost efficient, there are some other things you can do that will make your garage more comfortable. These things can also help improve your energy bills. Here are some ideas:

  • Insulate the adjoining walls – If the walls connected to the garage inside your home aren’t insulated, this can make your heating and cooling unit work harder to compensate. This would make your energy bill increase. By insulating the interior walls, you can make your home more comfortable and reduce energy cost.
  • Make sure you seal and weatherize your garage – This will not only protect your garage and your valuables that you keep in the garage, but it will also keep nature outside where it belongs. You may also install a storm door between the house and the garage.

These are just a couple of things that can save you money in the long run. By protecting the interior of your garage, you protect your investment.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
