Ridge vent and power vent
I'm having a new roof installed. I currently have two power vents on my roof. I'm having the two power vents replaced and was wondering if it's a good idea to have power vents and ridge vents installed together. I'm hearing different idea's. I feel that the power vents are working on a thermostat so they won't effect the ridge vent. Can someone give me some advise?

Do a search here. This topic has been discussed often, but the short answer is in most cases ridge vent and power vent mixing is a bad idea. The power vent can pull through the ridge vent rather the proper inlets leaving stagnant, moist air against the ceiling.
