    We had 10 ventilators installed, and the house STILL doesn't cool well!

    The stupid, it hurts!


    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    They should call a roofer in next...... change the shingles to white. That'll solve the problem!
    Use the biggest hammer you like, pounding a square peg into a round hole does not equal a proper fit.

    Nice chimney... and classic undersized fake shutters. Bad enough nobody mounts then correctly anymore.... On the Window frame.... But would it kill you to make them 1/2 the width at least.

    I wonder if there are even soffit vents. Surely not enough for that many fans.

    Try putting ten more on the other side, that should do the trick.

    Maybe the Ho is a controls engineer and they have backdraft dampers and come on in stages as attic temps rise along with lead lag control so the high quality Chinese motors get even run time.

    Or... maybe that's a top secret Taco Bell testing facility and each one of those goes to a s**t stall.

    What`s the purpose of the fake "chimney" if there are already two B-vents installed?
    Did they build all that as camouflage for that little dryer vent hood?
    I love overtime I just hate working for it.
