Which Type of Insulation is Best For You?
These rolls of insulation are made out of highly reflective aluminum foil that are applied on both sides of either cardboard or polyethylene bubbles. This reflects radiant heat, causing the space to decrease in temperature. Reflective insulation is light-weight and easy to size and cut for installation. It is very effective and is typically the least expensive option. The only potential downside is that it may not be as visually appealing as other options.
Cellulose is a more recent solution to garage heat and is growing in popularity. Cellulose insulation is usually blown into walls and ceiling cavities with a special blowing tool. The blowing tool can usually be rented at nearby tool stores. Tool stores will often let you rent a blowing tool for free or at a reduced price if you purchase the cellulose from them. Cellulose is a good choice when working with finished walls – all you have to do is create a hole big enough for the hose to be blown through and then patch the hole up once the project is finished.
Fiberglass is the best option when dealing with exposed and unfinished garage walls. Throughout the years, fiberglass has been proven to be effective and beneficial. You can find pre-cut batts and rolls at the store to install yourself. Fiberglass is both water and fire resistant, which is an important factor to remember when choosing which type of insulation to purchase. A great benefit to fiberglass is that it has acoustic control because fiber is a naturally sound absorbent material, meaning noisy car starters can be a thing of the past.
