Yes, a garage workout! It’s a great idea. Ever think of getting a workout in your garage? Your garage was designed for a specific purpose (storing your car), but that doesn’t mean you can’t do something else with the space.

Prevent Garage Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Safety First! Garage Carbon Monoxide Is Not to Be Taken Lightly. Garage carbon monoxide poisoning is a real problem—and it could be an invisible killer. Carbon monoxide gas is produced by incomplete combustion, such as what happens in your car’s engine, especially when you first start it up in the morning. If you breathe it in, the gas will bond with your red blood cells so tightly that oxygen can’t get in. Breathe in a little, and you get a headache. Breathe in a bit more, and you can’t think clearly. Breathe in a bit more, and you pass out and […]

Garage door insulation works exactly the same way, giving your home the added protection from the elements you need for safety and comfort. You wouldn’t have an uninsulated wall in your home, so why would you want an uninsulated door the size of a wall? Without insulation, you have two choices in cold weather: either raise your heating bill, or let your garage get cold. A cold garage is bad for your car […]
