"My personal garage had the same problem.  No drywall ceiling in garage.  So I put a ventilation turbine in the roof deck. Hot air rises, as we all know, so remove it up high and bring in cooler outside air from lower.    Take a…"

Overheating garage

Hi all, I'm looking for potential solutions to a problem at a client's house.  The south facing 2 car garage gets extremely warm in the summer months.  The heat coming from the attic thru the uninsulated garage ceiling is the primary culprit.   Any advice on how we can lower the temperature in the garage is much appreciated.See More
