Q:

I need help keeping our living room warm this upcoming winter. The room is located over our garage (unheated) which is finished with 4" faced fiberglass batt insulation and sheetrock. We are considering removing the garage's ceiling sheetrock and insulation and having closed-cell insulation sprayed. Has anyone completed a similar project that can comment on the results?

Another choice would be to replace the living room window, which is a cheap single paned window. Last year we added insulation film, which did help but did not solve the problem. Related to this, can anyone comment on insulated blinds and their effectiveness.

We have a limited budget so I'd like to put our money where it will yield the best results. I would love to hear any other ideas as well. Thanks!
