how to insulate a garage

Homeowners can benefit from the latest in heating and cooling tech, but one area of the house that commonly goes overlooked is the garage. If you work in the garage on a regular basis, then you’ll definitely want to consider insulating it, so it can be properly heated in winter and cooled in the summer.

Here's what you'll need to know if you want to take advantage of garage insulation services in Ohio.

What are the Benefits of Garage Insulation?

Adding insulation to a garage can help eliminate the sizable temperature swings that often occur in uninsulated areas, making it a more comfortable space to work in on a regular basis. This can be a boon if you use your garage as a workshop, craft room, or office. Insulating a garage can also make it energy efficient by a small degree, but only if you constantly use your garage as a work space. Otherwise, garage insulation has little impact on your home’s overall energy consumption.

How Much Effort Is Needed?

The amount of effort you’ll need to put into garage insulation can vary depending on how much work needs to be done. To start, you’ll likely have to find and seal as many gaps as possible prior to adding the actual insulation.

If you're not comfortable with this process or if you simply don’t have the time, you can always have the professionals at P.K. Wadsworth Heating & Cooling tackle this project on your behalf.

How Much Will It Cost?

The average cost of insulating your garage depends on a number of factors, including the type of insulation you plan on using, the amount of space that requires insulation and whether you choose to replace your existing garage door with an insulated version. In most cases, you can expect to spend anywhere from $400 to $1,500 or more. For more information on garage insulation services in Ohio, be sure to contact us at P.K.
