Detached garage attic is 30-40 degrees hotter
I have an insulated 28×30 detached garage main level with an uninsulated attic. on an 80+ degree day my garage stays comfortable in the mid 70’s later in the day. The attic on the other hand is 115 degrees or more and is unbearable to do anything other than to retrieve something and get back down the ladder. I have read your opinions on residential home and attic spaces but was wondering if the was an effective way to lower the attic temperature. Obviously the ridge vents aren’t enough. Am I just resigned to living with this and limit my work time to cooler months? This garage has shingles for a roof covering. Thanks in advance for your reply.
