The ptoblem is the fact that the Home is a Split level and the rooms on the front of the house have about 6' of Sloped ceiling (insulated but not vented) There's no moisture problems, and when the roof was re done I had them install 3 "rows" of Ice & Water barrier up from the eave line......
Similar situation: ridge vent but no soffit vents. However, a roof-mounted exhaust is also in place, but I'm beginning to think it's not serving its purpose. There are gables at each end of the attic with open & non-moving louvers. Would I be better off having fans at those? Should I exhaust air or draw outside air in?
