I have an 1889 queen Anne (victorian style) house in Wisconsin that has no form of attic ventilation. After reviewing many of the posts I have read that soffit vents and a ridge vent is the way to go but I cannot do this. Here is the problem.... I have no attic access at this time and would rather not re-open the attic. Second, the soffits are pitched with the roof line so there appears to be little no access for air to flow if I put vents in. I was considering putting in gable vents with a solar power fan but am worried that this may not be adequate and I may be wasting my money. Any advice?
