Many homeowners across the UK get a lot of use out of their garage. Whether you use it as a simple storage space, a place to store your car or an alternative use such as a home office or gym, it can be one of the most useful parts of the home. But it’s still common that in the winter time, people neglect their garage, simply down to the fact that it’s so cold.
The most obvious and simple way to counter-act this is to invest in insulation for your garage. But how could you benefit?
The most obvious benefit is that you garage will be a nice temperature, whatever the weather, meaning your garage will be accessible and a toasty temperature all year round. Particularly if you use your garage as an office or DIY work space, you don’t want it to be freezing and therefore unusable.
Insulating your garage would benefit you if you had a detached garage, but even more so if it’s attached. This is because an uninsulated attached garage makes it a lot harder to heat up the rest of your home, increasing energy bills in the process.
Preserves your belongings.
Whether you use your garage to store your paints, your car or any other electrical equipment, freezing temperatures will negatively affect its life-span. Liquids will freeze, and whilst they can liquidise again, the fluctuations of temperature will cause the quality of the liquids to diminish.
In terms of your car, there are many ways its quality will suffer such as: oil and screen wash will freeze, engine will run less efficiently and rubber compounds in your tires will harden.
