Florida is warm most of the year. While other states in the country experience extremely cold winters with a lot of snowfall, Orlando can only go as low as more or less 51 degrees Fahrenheit in January. Because of this, many homeowners find no need to insulate all parts of their home. When designing your home, you may also wonder if garage insulation is necessary especially if you barely use this area.
Insulation is very important in homes and other structures to add to the overall comfort of the area. Winters won’t be as cold and summers won’t be way too hot. Energy savings is another huge benefit of a properly insulated home. Because of better temperature control, your AC and heating system do not have to work twice or thrice as much.
When you use your garage to park your car and as a storage area for your home, insulating it may not be necessary. Especially when you’re on a tight budget, the garage could be the least of your priorities to insulate. After all, no one’s going to be there for long periods. You leave the garage as soon as you park your car. You probably won’t stay there for more than just a few minutes when you’re looking for items in the storage.
However, garage insulation may be necessary and very important when you have to include this area to properly insulate attached rooms in your home. For instance, if your living room is right beside your garage or your bedroom is on the floor above it, the garage must be insulated properly to maximize the effects of insulation of adjacent rooms.
Furthermore, although it might not be the case now, you may find the need to use the garage in the future. Some people use their garages to hold parties, band practice, hobbies or arts and crafts area, and more. It is best to just insulate the area the same time you’re insulating other parts of your home to lessen the costs.
