Attached garage ventilation

NormanWB | Posted in Mechanicals on

I am looking for some guidance for venting an attached garage of exhaust fumes when coming and going. I have AirCycler’s Garage Vent module. Now, all I need is to pair it with a fan of some sort. The garage is roughly 24x24x10. Any recommendations on brand, CFM, location?

I am considering a simple Broan through the wall exhaust fan that will do around 300 CFM at 6 sones, but that is designed for interior use. While the garage is protected from the elements, there are the issues of temperature, humidity and critters.

    I think you're on the right track. Tamarack offers two models of exhaust fans designed for garages; one is rated at 235 cfm, and the other one is rated at 416 cfm. Here is the link: Tamarack Garage Ventilation Fans.
