Carpet pad insulation

I am in the process of finishing a Bonus room over my garage. The room was floored and there were stairs going up to it as well. I am nearing the carpeting stage and was wondering if anyone had an suggestions for carpet pad that will help the insulation of heat from the garage. I have tried to do a little research but haven't come up with any definite answers. Just wanted to have some knowledge before I go shopping for carpeting.

Carpet pad insulation

A good thick fiber pad will not be super comfy, but will provide plenty of warmth.

We just use Bear hide here...

just kidding

Carpet pad insulation

Can you add insulation between the garage and the bonus room?

Carpet pad insulation

I probably could but hated to rip up the flooring or the drywall ceiling of the garage.
