When you’re in your garage are you tired of sweating in the summer and freezing in the winter? Your friendly Neighborhood Garage Door Repair team has some ideas for insulating a garage door. Other than just being more comfortable you’re going to be surprised by the extra benefits!
Discovering New Uses for your Garage
You can use an insulated garage for many other things than just keeping your car out of the weather. You can put in that fitness center you’ve always wanted. Or how does a ‘man cave’ sound? Maybe an area you use for your hobbies? Use it for an entertainment or game room? A plant nursery? Or maybe even turn it into an extra bedroom.
Once you insulate your room, a world of possibilities opens. It can become an extension of your home used on a daily basis. Now you can think about all the things you want to do but didn’t have space.
Save On Your Energy Bill
Every time you go through the door that connects the garage to the inside of your home you bring heated or cold air in with you. And the air that was already cooled or heated escapes into the garage. That incoming air needs to be heated or cooled by the systems of your home. Stop watching your money ‘fly out the door’ every time you open it.
Extra Insulation May Be Already Needed
If your garage has your homes water heater, washer, and dryer, or any other water in it, it needs extra insulation. Without extra insulation, you run the risk of having a frozen water pipe in the garage. When the water pipe freezes and bursts water will spray from the pipe covering everything in your garage.
You run the risk of your tools rusting, and losing anything stored in your garage. If the pipe freezes at night you can lose a lot of water until discovered in the morning. Besides everything else you lost, the water company sends you a bill for your water usage. Now there’s a really bad end to an already bad day!
Protect Your Stored Items
Regulating the temperature of your garage can help you to avoid problems with mildew, mold, and rust. Many items are sensitive to temperature change and humidity. An insulated garage can stop your tools from rusting, or papers mildewing and molding.
Stop Being a Noisy Neighbor
If you have a workshop in your garage, and you or your kids play in a band, your neighbors may not appreciate all the noise you are generating. Especially if you are a ‘night owl,’ and enjoy doing those activities in the evening or night time. They’ll appreciate your being a good neighbor, and you’ll get fewer visits from the local police asking you to please lower the noise level.
