There are many effective ways to cool a garage, but the professional 4 products/services listed above are by far the most effective methods of cooling any type of garage, even one’s that do have windows.
1. Install Garage Radiant Barrier
Garage attic insulation, also known as, Garage radiant barrier is needed to stop the heat from entering your garage. We use SRX garage radiant barrier to block out 98% of radiant heat. You can buy a similar type of radiant barrier material but no radiant barrier will stand up to our patented SRX garage insulation.
The great thing about SRX is that it works for your home and is the best insulation for hot climates. SRX comes with a lifetime guarantee to save you 50% on heating and cooling electricity costs.

2. Install a Garage Attic Fan
The garage attic fan will push all of the remaining heat out of the attic of your garage. We used the highest powered German attic fan money can buy. This ensures that the air is circulated frequently and keeps your garage at a much cooler temperature.
Without an attic fan, the garage would become a thermos oven, keeping in all of the heat. No radiant barrier installation is complete without installing an attic fan or some other type of garage ventilation system. If a radiant barrier contractor tries to tell you that an attic fan isn’t need, run!
Although, just installing garage attic insulation and an attic fan isn’t enough, you need insulation on the garage door to keep all of that heat out as well.
3. Install Garage Door Insulation
Garage door insulation is by far the most important component to cooling a garage and lack of it are one main reasons why your garage gets so hot in the summer.
We use the same patented SRX radiant barrier to insulate your garage door as well. SRX is the best insulation for garage doors and fills in any tiny holes or cracks where hot air can make its way in.
Garage door insulation keeps your garage cooler, decreases the time needed to cool down the garage, make garage air conditioning work more efficiently and more.
Although, installing garage attic insulation, a garage attic fan and garage door insulation alone won’t make your garage completely cool. You have to install some kind of garage cooling system in order to cool down the space effectively, and keep it cool. Only by installing a garage mini split ac unit will you experience true garage cooling with controllable temperatures. Combining all 4 of these products together is the best way to cool a garage in the summer.

4. Install a Garage Mini-Split A/C Unit
Garage air conditioning is perfect for homeowners who not only want to keep their garage cooler but for those who want complete control over the temperature inside the garage space. Garage mini split ac units are perfect for cooling down garages fast.
AC Unit For Garage With No Windows
Also, garage mini split systems are the perfect ac units for garages with no windows because they don’t use the window as a vent. They have their own ventilation systems where you only have to drill a small hole in the wall for installation.
Ductless Air Conditioner For Garage
Remember, you can’t install window ac units because there are no windows. Garage mini split ac units are ductless and only need a small hole drilled to vent to connect to the outside unit. This solves the problem with no garage ventilation of garage windows.
Make Your Garage Cooler In The Summer & Save
Not only can garage mini splits make your garage more pleasant during the summer but it can also help decrease your home’s central air conditioning expenses. When you cool down the closest part of your garage that is connected to the house, it also keeps rooms that are attached the garage cooler.
