Are you asking, 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's effect on the comfort and energy efficiency of your home. But if your garage is attached, the garage may be a source of discomfort and energy loss -- especially if you have a room above the garage.
When a house is built, the common wall between the garage and the home's living space should be air-sealed and insulated . But builders sometimes skip this step. Dr. Energy Saver Of Connecticut can inspect your garage and correct garage insulation problems.
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.

Garages can cause your house to lose heat in winter and be a source of heat gain in summer. Cold (or warm) air infiltrates the garage ceiling assembly and makes its way to the living space above.
Insulating the garage ceiling. It's essential to install garage ceiling insulation if there is living space above the garage.
Without insulating the garage ceiling, 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 installation, Dr. Energy Saver will also air-seal the garage to eliminate energy-wasting leaks and also to prevent harmful auto emissions from entering the living space.
Insulating garage walls. When the garage is attached to the house, the wall that separates the garage from the living space should air-sealed, insulated, and finished with fire-rated drywall.
Installing new 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 as called for in local building codes.
Many people like to use the garage for carpentry, woodworking or automotive projects.
If you have a garage workshop, it pays to insulate the garage so that you can work comfortably regardless of weather conditions outside.
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.
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 prevent the metal surface from being dented and bent out of shape.
