Insulation

My garage is uninsulated and unheated. It gets very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. it is attached to the house. If i insulate the ceiling and walls will it make a significant difference in the summer temperature? Our dog likes it out there but in mid summer it gets too hot for her aor for me to work out there.

Thanks!:

scotthursh,

Insulation would help but lets face it, unheated is still unheated and it will get cold. Issue on it getting hot is another issue.

If you are considering insulating the garage, ensure that you have adequate ventilation in the roof and soffit. The temp in the attic should be similar to what is outside. This makes a world of difference inside the garage.

I will copy your post and place in insulation as we have a great moderator to answer this with more detail and experience.

Good Luck!
