Living space above means there should be insulation below. Builders often neglect to install insulation in a garage ceiling below living space.

Why make a fuss about energy-saving improvements in the garage? After all, this is just a place to park cars and store stuff like tools, bicycles, sports gear and trash cans.

If your house has a detached garage, then there is truly no worry about garage insulation and it's effect on the comfort and energy efficiency of the house. But most houses have attached garages, and if there's a structural connection between these spaces, there's also a thermal connection.

If you have an attached garage, keep reading. There's a good chance that insulation deficiencies in the garage are compromising your comfort and costing you money.

Garage Insulation Installation In Virginia

Garage Insulation being installed for increased energy efficiency by out expert contractors

Did the builder do it right? When a house is built, the common wall between the garage and the home's living space should be air-sealed and insulated . But builders sometimes skip this step. Dr. Energy Saver can inspect your garage and correct garage insulation problems.

Insulating the garage ceiling. It's essential to insulate the garage ceiling if there is living space above the garage.

Without insulation in the garage ceiling, the living space above the garage will be uncomfortably cold in winter and distressingly hot in summer. You'll be wasting energy nearly all year round.

Along with any garage insulation upgrade, Dr. Energy Saver will also air-seal the garage to eliminate energy-wasting leaks and also to prevent harmful auto emissions from entering the living space above.

Insulating garage walls. When the garage is attached to the house, the wallthat separates the garage from the living space should air-sealed, insulated and finished with fire-rated drywall.

Installing new garage doors. There are two types of doors in garages: those for people and those for cars. A people-type garage door should be insulated and weatherstripped for energy efficiency and rated for fire protection as called for in local building codes.

What about a workshop?
Many people like to use the garage for carpentry, woodworking or automotive projects.

If you have a garage workshop, it pays to insulate the garage so that you can work comfortably regardless of weather conditions outside.

When it comes to the larger garage doors used for cars, many homeowners choose insulated versions as well, either when a house is built or when replacing old garage doors.

As shown in the photo, insulated garage doors have cores that are filled with foam insulation, and metal "skins" that are often textured and detailed to look like old-fashioned frame-and-panel doors made from a solid wood design.

Although insulated garage doors are more expensive than uninsulated "economy" versions, they're often well worth the extra investment. In addition to improving energy efficiency, the door's insulated core helps to prevent the metal surface from being dented and bent out of shape.
