Replace overhead door windows with louvers for ventilation?

mdjonesJuly 19, 2007

Living in Texas, our garage gets a wee bit hot in the summer. Does anyone know if I can replace a couple of the windows in the overhead door with some kind of louver insert, kinda like an A/C vent cover?

Or is there some other simple way to passively vent the garage. I don't really want to install a thru-the-wall vent fan.

Be careful if you have real glass in the door you are taking weight off the door and not adding enough back on so it could make the door too hot (i.e. jumps off the ground) I would look for other alternatives.
