Keeping Your Garage Cool This Summer

Here in Florida, along with the sunshine, naturally comes hot temperatures and humid days and nights. With those weather conditions, often comes regular afternoon thunderstorms as well. In the midst of this steamy hot weather, if you are not at the pool or beach, it’s difficult to spend any amount of time outdoors. Well, the temperatures are already starting to soar, and keeping cool is at the forefront of many people’s minds.

One place that often seems to retain heat is the garage. And in the summertime, with a number of projects on your “to do” list, you might need to spend some time working in there. So just how can you endure the stifling heat, while making things more comfortable for you and your family?

Well, at Garage Design Works, we understand that your garage can get pretty hot during the summer. Here are a few tips to help keep it cool:

  1. Insulate your garage door. By doing so, you’ll be able to keep cool air from your air conditioner inside, making the room more comfortable.

  2. Lighten up. Did you know that the color of your garage door can actually affect your garage temperature as well? Try painting your garage door a light color. Dark colors absorb more heat, transferring it into the room.

  3. Weather stripping. Installing weather stripping at the base of your garage door can also help to keep hot air out and cool air in.

  4. Stay organized. Finally, reduce the amount of clutter in your garage. Keeping everything well-organized and put away properly can help keep your garage from getting stuffy and overwhelming.
