Why make a fuss about energy-saving improvements in the garage? After all, this is just a place to park cars and store stuff like tools, bicycles, sports gear and trash cans. If your house has a detached garage, then there is truly no worry about garage insulation and it’s effect on the comfort and energy efficiency of the house.
But most houses have attached garages, and if there’s a structural connection between these spaces, there’s also a thermal connection.
If you have an attached garage, keep reading. There’s a good chance that insufficient garage insulation is compromising your comfort and costing you money, especially if you have a room over your garage.
Depending on how your garage is used and how your house is designed, upgrading garage insulation may have a big impact on comfort and energy efficiency in the rest of the house.

Garage insulation options
Insulating the garage ceiling
It’s essential to insulate the garage ceiling if there is living space above the garage. Without garage ceiling insulation, the living space above the garage will be uncomfortably cold in winter and distressingly hot in summer. You’ll be wasting energy nearly all year round.
Along with any garage insulation upgrade, Oliver will also air seal the garage to eliminate energy-wasting leaks and prevent harmful auto emissions from entering your living space.
It’s tricky to insulate finished walls because it’s more difficult to get insulation inside the wall, in the cavities between studs. Walls are easy to insulate when the studs are still visible, before wallboard or other finished wall material is installed.
Insulating garage walls
When the garage is attached to the house, the wall that separates the garage from the living space should be air sealed, insulated and finished with fire-rated drywall.
Insulating the garage with rigid foam
An insulation board installed by the experts at Oliver, can provide insulating and air sealing value superior to other types of garage insulation. An insulation board offers high R-value, durability (it won’t compress like fiberglass) and immunity to mold and moisture damage. Plus it has an integral radiant barrier for additional energy savings.
Insulated garage doors
There are two types of doors in garages: those for people and those for cars. A people-type garage door should be insulated and weatherstripped for energy efficiency, and rated for fire protection specified in local building codes.
When it comes to the larger garage doors used for cars, many homeowners choose insulated versions as well, either when a house is built or when replacing old garage doors.
Insulated garage doors have cores that are filled with foam insulation, and metal “skins” that are often textured and detailed to look like old-fashioned frame-and-panel doors made from a solid wood design.
Although insulated garage doors are more expensive than uninsulated “economy” versions, they’re often well worth the extra investment. In addition to improving energy efficiency, the door’s insulated core helps to prevent the metal surface from being dented and bent out of shape. Home insulation is very important to a home’s overall comfort and efficiency.
