The best ways to keep your garage heated in the cold months

The best ways to keep your garage heated in the cold months

 Most homeowners use their concrete garage as more than a place just to park their car, away from all the dangers of the outdoors.
The garage is now used to store items, as a home gym, a home office and so much more – therefore, it would be beneficial to keep it a nice comfortable temperature in the winter months.
But what are the best ways to do this? We’ve come up with a list to help you!

Check the walls and flooring

Most garages have concrete floors and open studded walls, which aren’t the bets materials to keep your garage insulated in winter. You will have to spend a lot of time and effort to keep it warm, whilst spending a lot of money doing so.

Insulation

Even with the wrong materials on the floor and walls, the right insulation can make up for it, and there are a few options to choose from.

There are insulation batts as well as blown-in insulation which you can install between wall studs and on top you can install ply wall, drywall or another type of panelling. If you are planning to use this insulation for a long period of time, the best option to go for is the blown-in insulation, as it is more energy efficient and has a better R-Value than the others.

Garage door

No kind of insulation will work if your garage door is letting all the heat out, so it is vital that your garage door is in the best condition possible. If it’s not, your energy bills will be sky-high, as well as your garage being freezing cold. It may be worth investing in a steel garage door which is already insulated – it will cost a lot initially, but will save you a lot over time.
