Insulate the Garage Door
One of the most effective ways to maintain a warmer garage is by insulating the garage door. You can purchase insulation kits designed for garage doors, or hire a professional to install a more permanent solution. Proper insulation not only keeps the cold out but also helps regulate the temperature inside.
Seal Gaps and Cracks
Check for gaps and cracks around windows, doors, and the garage’s foundation. Use weatherstripping, caulk, or foam sealant to seal these openings. This not only prevents drafts but also keeps pests out.
Upgrade Your Garage Door Weatherstripping
Ensure your garage door weatherstripping is in good condition. Over time, weatherstripping can wear out and become less effective. Replacing it helps maintain a tight seal and prevents heat loss.
Consider a Garage Heater
If you plan to spend a lot of time in your garage during the winter, consider investing in a garage heater. These units can provide a comfortable temperature even on the coldest days. Electric, propane, and natural gas heaters are popular options.
