Are You Losing Heat Through Your Garage?

If you are losing heat, then it is costing you money. Your heater is working harder to produce heat, while it keeps escaping through places like garages or other poorly insulated areas. If you garage is attached to your home, it is important to make sure it is properly sealed. There are certain areas to check for heat loss.

Ways To Check if Your Garage is Leaking Heat

The wall of your garage should not have any large holes or visible cracks. That is a visible warming sign that heat is being lost. However, there are so many ways that heat can seep out without you even realizing it. Are you garage walls insulated? If one wall is cooler to the touch than the other, it could mean your insulation is faulty or that you do not have any insulation to begin with. The actual garage door is supposed to have insulation as well. It is important to make sure the door has insulation so it is not letting heat escape that way.

You should also check for weather stripping. Warm air can slowly and quickly escape without you knowing it. One tiny crack can cause a spike to your heating bill. One of the most common ways air leaks from garage doors is when air sneaks out under broken weather stripping that is supposed to create a seal between the garage door and the floor. The seal can change over time, so it is critical that you check it to make sure it is properly sealing the area. If you notice a draft, you will want to simply replace the weather stripping as soon as possible and that should help the issue.
