Batt Insulation: This cotton-fiberglass material is fairly inexpensive and easy to use: simply place it in between the studs, staple a vapor barrier to cover it, and you’re in business. However, for it to work effectively, you’ll need to wall it up as well. Therefore, you’ll need to buy and install 1/2" drywall around the room (though ceiling and walls adjacent to living areas typically require 5/8" drywall). This may require the work of a garage contractor, depending on how handy you are and how good you want the final product to look. It adds to your cost but if it’s worth being done, then it’s worth being done right.
Create an efficient work area - If you use your garage as a work area, be sure to make the best use of this space. Install a work bench or table. A pegboard and a sturdy tool chest are a great way to store your tools, yet keep them easily accessible. Relocate trash and recycling bins to nearby the garage entrance - Section off an area near the entrance of your home for trash or recycling to make it easier to dispose of these items.
Where Does It Go? If garage insulation is just installed in the one wall edging your home’s interior, you’ll already be saving tons on energy costs: a lot of air escapes and heat is transferred between this particular partition. Plus by law, insulation in this wall is required to be fire-rated (due to the high probability of combustible liquids stored in this "room" and its lack of smoke detectors), which adds an extra layer of safety to the space. And don’t forget the ceiling: if an attic or bedroom rests above, insulating this "horizontal wall" is crucial. Also, you can insulate the door with ready-made kits that seal and prevent any problematic air gaps.
When you shop around for a new garage gate, each manufacturer will vouch that their product is the best. Don’t be tempted by catchy advertisements or unrealistic promises. Always keep in mind that your new garage gate should last for at least 10-20 years, depending upon the usage rate and maintenance frequency.
