Sometimes there are building codes for attached garages and required R-value ratings. But there are often no requirements for detached garages. Just because insulation isn’t required in a garage doesn’t mean that you won’t benefit immensely from garage insulation. Below we will discuss some of the benefits of garage insulation.
- Protect Your Belongings – The garage is a great place to store personal belongings. Exposure to extreme temperatures and humidity can damage personal belongings. Garage insulation can help to reduce humidity and limit extreme temperature changes.
- Reduced Noise – Garage insulation helps to reduce noises from reaching your neighbors. This may be a benefit to you if you use your garage for anything like a shop with loud noises or a practice space for a band. If you would like to use your garage space for a quiet meditation space or an additional living area, then keeping loud exterior noises out will be helpful.
- Year Around Use – When you insulate your garage, you will be able to comfortably use your garage even when the weather outside turns cold or warms up.
- Less Hot and Cold Air Transfer – If you have an attached garage, you have probably noticed that when you open the door between the garage and your home, the excessive hot or cold air in the garage rushes into your home. When you insulate your garage, this problem is considerably reduced.
There are many amazing benefits of garage insulation. Once you have an insulated garage, you will never be able to go back to not having one. We think that you will love all of these and many other benefits.
