I can’t add ceiling fans due to the overhead installation to accommodate the screen door. Not looking for a miracle but something to make it a little more bearable during the summer months
A 1000 cfm fan placed in the garage ceiling will exchange all on the air in your garage in 3 1/2 to 10 minutes. That's assuming you have unrestricted flow into the garage and exiting the attic.

A ceiling fan does not directly help although it does make humans feel cooler. An open attic hatch would help but certainly not at the same speed of air exchange.
