Garages offer one of the most versatile spaces in your home in the 21st century. They are no longer for just parking your vehicle, storing Christmas decorations, or for filling with miscellaneous junk. For many they act as a work space (such as those who do woodworking, metalworking, or more), an area for hobbies, or even for working out. Garage insulation acts as a great support for making garages a hospitable and comfortable environment. Additionally, the garage acts as another gateway into your house, and so must be considered when examining the wider well-being of your property. We believe Indianapolis Insulation Services is at the forefront in provision of garage insulation in the Indianapolis, IN area.
Strength and Solidity
When considering the effectiveness of your home insulation, materials and coverage tend to be the main concerns. In the case of garage insulation, many forget about it altogether! Of course, this can undermine your otherwise well-laid plans to keep your home cozy and comfortable. Garages act as another culprit when it comes to thermal bridging (the process by which heat follows the path of least resistance), when it is adjoined to the rest of your property. Don’t make it harder to heat your home by neglecting garage insulation.
Consider the Door
Many who put a considerable effort into insulating their garages make a simple but catastrophic mistake – they forget about the garage door! It might sound obvious, but if you have an older garage door, you’re very likely losing heat through it, and throwing money down the drain. Newer garage doors have been designed to insulate whilst retaining their signature durability. At Indianapolis Insulation Services, we’re concerned with you experiencing total customer satisfaction, and our experts can offer you insight into the best solutions for garage door insulation.
Garages often make for noisy environments with cars, heavy machinery, hand tools, pets, music practice, and more, all contributing to a raucous atmosphere. This doesn’t prove especially popular with neighbors or those in the house not interested in those activities. This is where garage insulation comes in, as it has the bonus benefit of noise reduction. Whatever choice you go for – foam insulation, blown in fiberglass insulation, or one of our other offerings – you can reduce your noise output thereby inviting a feeling of tranquility. This should go some way towards keeping peace in the home, and in the neighborhood.
Protect Your Goods
A lack of insulation can mean a greater likelihood of lots of problems, chief among them being increased moisture. This can lead to mold, mildew and fungi infesting your property. This is obviously also the case for your garage. Whilst it isn’t an area people tend to live in, garages do house many valuable goods that you’d want to protect from damage. Cars, lawnmowers, power tools, exercise equipment, as well as more sentimental goods, are often found dwelling in garages. Garage insulation acts as a defense against the threat of damage to these valued possessions.
