For get the term return you only want supply air to a garage
Dude, didn't you read what the man said about the monoxide issue and the fire break? You can't penetrate the garage wall even for supply

And I guarantee that ac won't carry the load on the garage anyway.

Builder's who use the garage for an office will close down all the dampers to divert air to garage. The garage is never calculated in the sizing of the ac.


And damn! -who did the install Stevey wonder or Ray Charles?
Around here the builders have been using all window units .

please pay attention to all who say no to ductwork in the garage... Perfect example is my wifes new remote starter operator was so sensitive just putting her keys in her pocket or purse would start the car & we would find it running , (outside) , but it could have been in our garage too. We had it de tuned somehow , please play safe!!!!!!!! our inspector for our new attached garage made the drywall guy come back and box in the roller shaft so the garage was gas tight as possible..
