If your determined to keep these 'heat emitting' appliances in the garage, why not just install an window type (thru wall)air conditioner.
Set it to whatever garage temp you desire and thats it.
Sure, it's going to use a bit of extra electricity, but at least the garage will be cooler.

This is exactly what I would do ifI was in this situation

How about an exhaust fan behind the fridge?

It is not going to cost that much to heat the garage. A garage should only be heated to about 50 degrees. If I were to cool a garage I would only cool it to about 80 degrees.

In order to do this correctly you have to perform load calculations to determine what equipment would be the choice.

Cant you just get a cheap window from a Home Depot or something.
Then just a fan would get a bunch of that heat out.

You are going to have to put some kind of hole some where to get some air movement. Either vent/fan or A/C unit.

At least with a window(s) you get the added benefit if daylight and ventilation.
