One of my customers had the same problem and it appears that the floor of the above garage room wasn’t insulated
If there is an attic above this room, it would be worth looking to see if you have enough insulation up there too.

If you have Central Air and a place to tap into the main duct trunk line I would say tap into it and install a floor register near the exterior wall or tap in above if you have ductwork in the attic and install a ceiling register.
Big box stores have all the stuff you need to do the job.
Make sure everything is tight and well insulated.

That will temper the room, but not cool it.

The computers and printer add too much sensible load.

At a 24 difference between retunr and supply air temp, it would take 263CFM to remove the sensible load of the equipment alone.
At 18 difference, it would take 350CFM, and at 16 delta it would take 395CFM.

Once the rest of the house was satisfied, and the thermostat shut off th system, the equipment will cause that room would heat up quickly.

I had the same thing for a NW 2nd story room. First, just try a fan.

"The method for calculating wind chill has been controversial because experts[who?] disagree on whether it should be based on whole body cooling either while naked or while wearing appropriate clothing, or if it should be based instead on local cooling of the most exposed skin, such as the face."

Some people answering questions on this forum think everybody knows all the HVAC lingo, they don't it's a DIY site.
Go back to #18 try that with room darking shades if you have central air.

LOL...

Your probably the only one that took offence from that.

The OP, can probably get a Chiga Mini split installed for a very low price.

Why would you want to remove cold air from a hot room.
Funny after 40 years in HVAC never heard anyone ever call it a warm air return, even that's what it does in season.

COLD AIR RETURN, GOT IT .

Hello MR. counterman I need a warm air return grill, you need what?? A warm air return grill.
What's your account under,? I don't have an account you don't have a warm air return grill either. Call a HVAC mechanic.

Yes, some people get stuck in their little corner of the world.
And forget there are places that don't need heat.
Just cooling.

In those places, they are not called cold air returns.

Believe it or not. Philly isn't the center of the world.

If you don't have an account, that would be your problem.

Seal and insulate over and under that whole level. Also, put in a radiant heat barrier wherever the sun shines on.

Nobody said PHILLY is the Center of the world. If you only knew the places I have been, get it have been.

I have lived in Florida two times I recall the A/C lingo as just return air not hot or cold.
Face it Been you been had.
You wish you could get a good Hoagie or Chessesteak.
Hey Florida mechanics what's the word on return air.

That's not me asking the question that's you asking for a warm air return grill.

I wouldn't ask for a warm air return grill.
