Easy to install
Kit includes everything you need (except tools of course)
Great value compared to larger vent fans
No cutting through walls
Even included vent block-offs for the winter
Amount of air exchanged is limited by the relatively small fans and vents
A bit noisy when in operation (only a con if you are in the garage when they are running)
Conclusion - In the end I was torn between 4 or 5 stars. I gave it 5 because even though it won't measure up to a large wall vent system it is much simpler, easier to install, and costs a lot less. It is a great product that does exactly what it claims. It won't magically keep your garage cool when you park a hot car in it on a hot day, but it will dramatically decrease the amount of time it takes to cool back down to ambient temperatures. My garage is now down to "normal" temperatures a few hours after parking. Before it would still be warm when I went out in the morning after sitting all night.
Tips - Make sure you pick up a good quality 4 1/2" hole saw for installation, they may be hard to find at the local hardware store. Also get some plastic spray paint to paint the outside covers for a professional looking installation.
I was somewhat dubious of this product and emailed another reviewer before buying. I'm glad I did. He's a doctor and he reassured me that he liked his, so I went ahead and bought it. Thanks, Doc, although I didn't realize you would bill me just for asking your advice...
Anyway, it does just what it says. It cools your garage.
Prior to the unit being delivered I monitored the temperature in my garage which has a south facing door and a water heater in one corner. Almost always above 95 degrees. After installation...84 degrees.
My overall home cooling bill dropped, I think, because the heat removed from the garage did not transfer up into the "bonus room" above our garage. (next big project is to inspect insulation or lack of between garage ceiling and bonus room floor)
Biggest caution I can urge.....I measured for placement of the vents several times. I even used a similar thickness of wooden block temporarily attached to the door to simulate where I would place my upper vents to make sure nothing would scrape or interfere with the garage door movement. After measuring and cutting the first hole, the vent still scraped against my upper garage door weather strip gasket which I had to pare down to allow unrestricted movement. By this time I HAD to install the vent on the other side of the door the same way to preserve symmetry.
Do what I did, measure, simulate and then move the hole ANOTHER inch inward and downward just to be safe.
Once the first hole is cut, there is no turning back.
Kit seems very small when it arrives, but that is because it is packed so efficiently.
It is simple to install, directions are great.Read more ›
Unfortunately, this air exchange system isn't very effective. The fans are woefully under powered for a 2 car garage and are rather loud at that. These are basically 120mm fans, like the ones used to cool computer cases. So they just aren't big enough to cool down a garage. My 2 car garage is about 325sq ft and has 9ft ceiling. Even after 2 days of running this thing straight, it barely makes a difference. I'm in Austin TX, and it's summer right now and my garage is still 95F (and I have radiant barrier insulation put up on the doors too). Perhaps it's a little less humid than it would be without the fans, and there is still a little bit of air exchange, so that it's not as stuffy. But really, for the price, I expected much more. For a 2 car garage, they need to supply at least 4 fans, and even then I don't know how effective it would be. They really need to provide larger and more powerful fans. I would have gladly paid more for something that was effective.
I'm really disappointed with this system. And now I have 4 holes in my garage door that I can't really do much about. Please save yourself the trouble and maybe get a large exhaust fan installed in a wall or through the attic instead.
If you have a 2 car garage with 2 doors, instead of 1 big one, you will only be able to install the fans on one of the doors. If you install on 2 separate doors, you will have problems when you open one door.
