The attached garage is one of those things that separate the modern house from its forebears. In the olden days the carriage house was a good distance away from the main house in order to ensure odors from the horses stayed clear of the living room, kitchen and bedrooms. Today we drive our vehicles directly into the house with nothing but a standard interior door separating the garage from the living space. It’s incredibly convenient. But it also creates a few vexing issues, including those having to do with the garage environment. Like the basement the garage is typically unfinished, which means that in the winter it gets incredibly cold and in the summer it can be hot as an oven. Below we’ll look at some ways to cool the garage down this summer.
