Re: Garage too cool


Always ...if affordable to the owner and they like working in them. On attached garages, it saves more heat/cool being pulled from the home.

Re: Garage too cool


The temperature in any building is a balance between the heat leaving through wall, ceiling, and such vs the heat entering. In your garage the only heat entering is what escapes from your house through the connected wall and some solar during the day. Obviously the toughest area is the garage door and there are dew options there. Insulate everything perfectly and the temperature will still be cold as there is so little heat getting in.

However, insulating and air sealing are the first steps needed before adding some heat. The better job you do the better the results of heating. Even if it is just to kick it up a notch.

So its better insulate than nothing !!!
Which will be the best (R/ price) insulation to use in the garage.
And what is the way to do the job?
Insulation - vapor barrier - and drywall

Re: Garage too cool


Is the ceiling insulated? Insulating the walls certainly can't hurt. It will help keep it a tad warmer in the summer and cooler in the winter but not a whole lot since there is no heat source, but it is the first step in any temperature management. A big source of heat loss is probably through the garage dooor. Fibreglass batts are likely the cheapest, Roxul is my preferred. I believe vapour barrier is code in Ontario but I'm not certain in unconditioned space. I believe some types in rigid insulation are considered to their own vapour barrier if installed properly.
