Garage Insulation

Posted by ARC Insulation May 24th, 2024

While you may view your garage simply as a place to park your car or store belongings, it plays a crucial role in maintaining the overall energy efficiency and comfort of your home. People often ask, “Why is the room above the garage always cold in the winter and hot in the summer?” This is often due to poor insulation in the garage. Insulating garage walls and ceilings provide an added layer of protection for rooms adjacent to an attached garage, but it can also be an important measure when protecting pipes and your home’s equipment.  

At ARC Insulation, we specialize in providing comprehensive insulation solutions tailored to Chicagoland homeowners, including expert garage insulation services. 


Benefits of Garage Insulation 

Regardless of whether your garage shares one wall with your home or several, proper insulation can provide many benefits.

  • Stable temperatures – Insulation will help keep your garage warmer throughout the winter and cooler during the summer, making it easier to use the area for storage and activities. This will also help prevent the room above the garage getting hotter or colder than the rest of your home. 
  • Improved safety – Garages are a common place for your home’s electrical wiring, HVAC equipment, and other important components to your whole-home system. Insulation can help them operate both efficiently and safely. 
  • Extended vehicle lifespan – Keeping your car in a well-insulated garage will protect it from Chicagoland’s extreme weather conditions. 
  • Reduces home energy loss – When your uninsulated garage is attached to your home, it can be a huge source of energy loss in your home and high utility bills. The rooms above or connected to the garage can often get hotter or colder than the rest of the house, causing more energy to be used to stabilize those rooms. So insulating the garage can also better regulate those spaces and reduce the energy loss there as well. 
  • Protection for storage – If you store any belongings in your garage, insulation will help keep temperature changes and humidity from damaging them.
