I ask this because my house stinks of contact adhesive and Pre-cat lacquer. The easiest solution is to open the garage door but with it being so cold it's not really an option. If i fitted a fan through the wall, would this remove the fumes. The only problem i see is the smell leaching into next doors house.

Anyone got any ideas or simple solutions

I would think a charcoal filter as used in some cooker hoods may be part of your solution, as you don't want to dump the smell outside.

Assuming garage dimensions of 6m x 3m x 2m (l x w x h),even the smallest unit on the link would change the entire volume of air about every 12 minutes,so the flow rate looks good - but personally,I would check to see if the filter would be suitable for the chemicals you are using.
(As respirators come with different types/categories of filter for dealing with different smells)
Otherwise,looks a good price for the kit.
