Keeping Your Garage Warm in the Winter

Published on December 31st, 2018

If your garage is more of an extension of your home rather than solely a place that you park your cars, it is important that you take the necessary steps to make it as comfortable as possible while the temperatures drop. Keeping your garage warm doesn’t have to be a difficult task thanks to the following tips!

If your garage door isn’t properly working, it can cause excess cold air to enter. Make sure that your garage door doesn’t have any cracks or leave a thin opening at the bottom; this means that air is always able to enter and exit your garage.

Insulate the Walls

After you know there aren’t any air leaks in your garage, you can insulate the walls. Fiberglass batt insulation is usually the best option for this; make sure to pick the right thickness based on your garage door walls.

Install a Unit Heater

Another great way to keep your garage warm in the winter is by installing a unit heater. While repairing the door and insulating the walls will help, these things won’t necessarily cause your garage to produce heat. Unit heaters are inexpensive and simple to install. You can choose between either an electric or a gas heater depending on your preferences.

Your garage doesn’t have to be a cold, damp place that you don’t want to spend your time! If you need help with any garage-related repairs, such as a garage door repair in Skokie, please contact our team at Roberts Garage Door Professionals!
