Welcome!

It will certainly slow them down but it won't kill them.

Depends on the garage temperature. Detached can get as cold as outside. Attached is usually about 10F warmer. Thermometers are cheap. Put one in the garage. But do keep in mind that peppers are tropical plants like tomatoes etc... Don't put them out early. They sulk for months when chilled and never do well after.
