How to cool down a hot garage


My North Carolina garage is extremely hot, does not have a window and a room over top. In 5 years I have lost three freezers, there is no other place to put the freezer. I have tried to find a fan w ith a damper and a thermostat that could be mounted thru the wall but no luck. What can I do?

What about an attic vent fan such as this one?

It has a thermostatic control.

Separate shutters are also available such as these. They open based on the air pressure generated by the fan.


You would need to create "in" vents, preferably placed low on several walls to allow full air flow. These could be either fixed or shuttered, depending on whether you are concerned about infiltration of air in colder weather.
