How to handle a 86 year old homeowner-'wont' use attic fan!!


Talked till blue in the face,,,use the da#$%^&*() automatic attic fan PLEASE,,,have set it up and turned it on twice or three times,,,immediately shut off when I leave. HE can hear it run and it bothers him,,,dont know if its the noise OR the electricity it is 'wasting'

NOW he is *****ing cause got a long water streak down the kitchen ceiling,,,says the roof has to be leaking,,'see' it is stained. Has to climb up there and look all the time too,,,dont know why,,he couldnt see it if it DID leak!!

Think this started last winter so could be too much humidity up there,who knows??OR ice sicles. Roof was just reshingled 2 or 3 years ago.

IF I could talk fast enough to use it in summer time,,,so it helps his AC out,,he would cover it all up for winter cause he says lets too much cold air in,,,duh!!

Nothing "I" do is right anyway,,whats new??

ANY suggestions?? Thanks for reading-d-

Get him to change from the PAV to Passive Ventilation via the Ridge Vents, then he will not be able to turn them off.
