Although everyone knows that heat rises, you may be wondering why it is so hard to keep one of your upstairs rooms warm. Well if it is the room that happens to sit above the garage, then there are multiple reasons for why it is often the coldest room in the house. Since many garages are unheated, there is no heat to rise into the room above. And if the garage isn’t insulated well, this can make the problem even worse since heat will be lost through gaps and cracks in the garage. So if you are struggling to figure out how to fix this problem, read on for our tips on how to keep the room above a garage warm and cozy.
As we already stated above, you have to make sure that your garage is properly insulated or you will lose precious heat and money when it is able to escape. And besides insulating the walls and garage door, some people forget to insulate the garage ceiling, which allows cold air it circulate and possibly end up upstairs. And of course, make sure that the room upstairs is insulated as well.
The next steps involve the actual room upstairs. Make sure that the windows are properly sealed and if you want to take it one step further, you can add heavy drapes that will insulate and hold in heat. If the floors are making the room feel colder, add rugs or get new carpets, which will instantly make the room warmer and more comfortable.
If you go through all these steps and you still want the room to feel warmer, then we would recommend buying a space heater or even an electric fireplace, which can provide however much more heat you want all year long. This is an easy way to raise the temperature in the room since it doesn’t require installation.
