How to Cool a Garage Without Windows in The Summer

  •   Comments Off on How to Cool a Garage Without Windows in The Summer

If you live here in Dallas, Texas, you’ve been dealing with the 100+ degree temperatures for several weeks. We are nowhere near done with the scorching summer. If you have a garage that doesn’t have windows, then you know how hot it gets inside. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Dallas, Texas has a few tips to help you cool your garage down.

1. Use a Portable AC Unit

A simple solution would be to use a portable AC unit. It doesn’t require a window for the unit to sit. It sits on the ground like a space heater and plugs into the wall. You will need to vent the unit somehow. Most of them come with an adaptor that allows you to vent it outside like a dryer vent hose.

2. Install Ceiling Fans and Use Floor Fans

To get the airflow going in your garage, you need to install fans. If you just need temporary solutions, then put out floor fans. However, if you need something that is permanent and out of the way, you should consider installing ceiling fans.

Of course, if you put up ceiling fans you will need to make sure you install them out of the way of the garage door. Depending on the amount of space you have in your garage, this may not be an option.

3. Cut a Hole in The Wall For an AC Unit

Even if you don’t have a window, that doesn’t mean you can’t use a window unit. It will require you to cut a hole in your garage to place the unit. Since it is hot for so long here in Dallas, this would be a good long-term solution if you need to run air often.

4. Use Attic Vents

To help draw the air out of your garage, you can install attic vents on the gables of your home. This will allow the hot air to escape out of the room, making the fans and AC units more effective. By running fans in the garage and the attic vents, you can create an airflow in your garage.

5. Install Insulation on Your Garage Door

You can run fans and AC units all day, but if your door isn’t insulated, it will just let the air out. If you spend a lot of time in your garage and need it to be cooler, than you may consider installing a new door. Depending on the type of door you have, it may not be well insulated. Our technicians can advise you on the best door for this type of project.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
