Pacific Northwest homeowners would do well to insulate their garages. Doing so adds comfort and value to your home. It can also help with your energy savings.
There are no building requirements in Oregon or Washington requiring you to insulate your garage. But even if you have a detached garage, insulating the walls and ceiling helps reduce any rapid temperature swings in the structure—and it can help protect your property.
HomeRx and Performance Insulation Energy Services is a trusted name for providing premium residential insulation services. Are you looking for a company that specializes in retrofit insulation? Call us today for a free consultation.
Why Should I Insulate My Garage?
Cold weather can take its toll on any items with batteries, along with paints and other chemical-based products you might store in your garage. Insulation helps protect your valuables. Adding insulation that has a vapor barrier will help keep everything dry and mildew-free.
Here are some other benefits to consider:
1. Create a comfortable workspace
You may want to convert your garage into a rec room, workshop, or workout space. Insulating first will make the area much more comfortable.
2. Filter out the noise
Adding insulation in your garage blocks noise coming into your home—and gives you a quiet space if you want to escape a noisy household!
3. Increase your property values
Insulating your attached garage can lower your heating and cooling bills. That’s an attractive selling point if you ever plan to put your home on the market.

What Is the Best Insulation for My Garage?
Before you insulate, be sure to air seal your garage. Plug those holes to keep out the drafts. Search for any damaged weatherstripping and replace it. Next comes the insulation.
Fiberglass is your most popular garage insulation. It is the least expensive option and can be a DIY project for many people. Fiberglass can only be installed in open cavities—and be sure to wear protective clothing and a mask if you plan to install it.
Cellulose insulation is made from recycled material and then coated with a fire retardant and insect repellent. It is typically blown into a wall with a special machine. Unlike fiberglass, cellulose only works with finished walls.
The best option for your garage is spray foam insulation—especially if you plan to convert your garage into a living space. While spray foam is the most durable and efficient insulation, it is also the most expensive.
What Are the Best Areas to Insulate?
You can insulate all the walls, ceiling, and garage doors for the best results. Or, if you prefer, save money and time by only insulating the internal wall of your garage. Doing so will reduce any drafts from your garage into your living space—plus, it keeps heat from escaping your home in the winter months.
Our home energy audit can help you determine which areas of your garage are best suited for insulation. We can then work together to choose the best materials that fit your budget and accomplish your goals.
