Fan/Circulation Recommendation Requested

brianjohnApril 2, 2011


I built my garage 2 years ago. It is 24' x 36' (884 sq. ft.) with 11' ceilings. I live in Minnesota and in the winter I get a fair amount of moisture, including frost on some of the walls and garage doors. Now that this is starting to thaw I'm seeing some mold where the frost comes in.

I'm looking for some suggestions to get the air moving in there to prevent the moisture from building up. I was thinking one or two industrial ceiling fans would work. Also I'm planning to put a furnace in there to keep the heat around 45 or 50 degrees in the winter, but I'm not certain if I'll get to that this year.

If anyone has any recommendations on setup or specific brands/models of fans I would really appreciate it!
