Many homeowners in central Texas have workshops or sheds, whether they’re used to work on hobbies or projects, or for additional storage. Is your workshop insulated? If it is, good for you. If not, it should be! Our Austin spray foam insulation professionals will explain why you should never overlook good insulation for your workshop or shed.
If you spend a good deal of time in your workshop, you want to be comfortable. Whether you enjoy woodworking, tinkering with old cars, or other hobbies, it’s impossible to enjoy your time in the workshop when temperatures soar into the 90s and above if there is no insulation. The same is true in winter months when temperatures often drop into the 30s and 40s. Shaking and teeth chattering do not make for an enjoyable experience! Do you really want to wait until spring or fall to complete those projects?
Stored items could be susceptible to damage. Many people store old furniture, wall hangings, photo albums, boxed up clothing, and even family heirlooms in the shed or workshop. When temperatures are extremely cold, it can cause damage to wood and other materials. On the other hand, the high temperatures and humidity we have in Texas during summer months will leave your belongings susceptible to mold and mildew. Quality insulation will protect your stored items from damage caused by fluctuating temperatures.
If you have a sink or faucet in the workshop, you have pipes. While winter temperatures here aren’t usually extremely cold, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Insulation protects the pipes so you won’t have to worry about pipes bursting and the resulting water damage in the event it does drop to 20 degrees one night.
Insulation will also help keep energy costs down if you run a space heater or window/wall AC unit in your workshop. In fact, insulation is the single best thing you can do to enhance your comfort level.
Temperatures are hot right now, and it won’t be long before those chilly temps of winter begin creeping in. Are you ready to make your workshop or shed more comfortable and protect everything that’s in it from potential damage?
