View Full Version : best approach to take to ventalate attic
06-22-2005, 11:39 PM
1733 sq foot home. Has three attic roof vents that aren't powered.
What would be the best way to improve attic ventilation?
Ridge vents work well. I wouldn't recommend powered vents. There have been studies that claim that they use more power than they save.
Besides, most of the one's I see have burned up motors.

0.25" hardware cloth keeps out most insects, 0.5 for squirrels
