I have a 1948 brick and block house with a rectangular cross-section (36’ x 23’) and a gable roof. There are no soffit vents and no space at present to install them. The gable vents (12” x 18”) are considerably undersized (following the air vent, inc methodology). There is an attic exhaust fan with a mushroom cap. I don’t know the exhaust rate of the fan, but the motor is 1/20 hp, 1500 rpm and the blades are 14”. The attic gets hot - today, the air temp was 80 F and the attic was 110 F. The roof itself has 5 -10 years of life left. I would like to improve the situation, but I’m not sure the “best” way to proceed (a balance between results and money), but I would appreciate any input from the experts.
