Its my opinion that ridge vent can't provide enough square footage of venting by itself to create an efficient chimney effect. It's my understanding to create an efficient chimney effect you need to provide at least 50% more square footage of ventilation at the peak of the roof than at the soffit thus creating a good draw thru the soffits. Plus I don't think they can last the test of time.
