Nashville residents don’t get the coldest winters in the country, but that also means we’re not used to the winter chill.
Apart from an extra layer of soft, plush clothing, one of the best ways to ensure comfort at all times is to ensure that your garage and home stay at a nice, warm temperature.
Here are some of the best ways to winterproof your garage and ultimately, your house.
First Things First—Look Into Insulation
One of the best ways to keep your garage warm during winters is to insulate it. The walls being fitted with an insulation system, for example, makes a huge difference.
Depending on how much of a dip your bank account can take, you can opt for foam board insulation, batt insulation, or blown-in insulation. If you’re not sure which option is best, ask a professional to guide you.
Take The Sealing Up A Notch
Cracks or holes in the sealing can directly impact the temperature inside your garage. Damage to the sealing can also allow moisture to seep through, causing your garage to feel like it’s freezing if temperatures go low enough.
To inspect the sealing, take a look at the rubber lining at the base of your garage door. Also check up on the sealing that surrounds your windows and other doors. If there’s damage, you need to get it professionally repaired.
A Heater Has Multiple Benefits
While insulation will make a huge difference to the indoor temperature of your garage, another good way to keep things warm is to install a high-quality heater.
Besides making sure that everything is nice and toasty, a heater will also prevent any moisture in the garage from freezing or resulting in further damage.
Another advantage of getting a heater is that if you store personal things in the garage; for example, old clothing or books, the heater will make sure to keep these items at an adequate temperature too.
