If you need garage door insulation, or garage insulation to cover the ceilings or walls of the space, then we can help. Insulating a garage involves many of the same materials and approaches as are used in insulating any other property - however, the design of garages means that they are often not air tight, and insulating can therefore be a bit more of a tricky job. All cracks and gaps should be sealed before insulating, or the heat will simply pass through the cracks anyway, no matter how much insulating material is used elsewhere in the space!
Is It Worth Insulating My Garage?
If you’re paying to heat or cool your garage you need to insulate it. You may also choose to insulate your garage if the design of your home is such that there is a constant exchange of heat from the main building to the garage anyway. You can add in insulation to the garage door, walls and ceiling, which can make it a much more pleasant temperature - a real help if you use the garage as a workshop or living area, or if you tend to store goods in there which could be damaged by extreme temperatures. Give us a call to see what insulating your garage could cost - and what you might save in energy bills thank to proper garage insulation.
Can I Insulate My Own Garage?
Garage insulation is actually a pretty tricky job. Although it is possible for home owners to add insulation to some areas of their property with a reasonable chance of success, the garage is usually not built to be air tight which makes adding insulation a somewhat more complex process. Part of the job needed is to assess and address areas where heat might be lost to the outdoors, so any cracks or gaps in or around the doors, walls or windows for example. Insulation without this step is essentially wasted. That means it’s not something we recommend to be done without professional help.
Where In My Garage Needs To Be Insulated?
New Haven Insulation can help with adding insulation to your garage door, ceiling and walls. This can really make a difference to the ambient temperature in the garage, and of course makes sure that energy is not being wasted if you already heat or cool the space. You can use the same range of insulation materials and approaches in your garage as you might in your home, including spray insulation and batt insulation. It’s important also to insulate the door which is typically a huge area, prone to heat loss. Metal garage doors particularly conduct a lot of energy and can cause massive heat exchange.
