I am a huge fan of TOH - and have an old house - which has been totally renovated so it's a new This old house."
I have noticed some condensation in attic. I am trying to figure the correct approach.
Since I have a large attic fan, the roofing company suggested that I eliminate the ridge vent on the roof line. Next, install a humidistat in conjunction with fan so it turns on when humidity or heat is a certain level and will run year round instead of just in summer.
I also have soffit vents along the back of the house. The roofer said with the roof ridge vent, when the fan engages, it is just basically drawing in outside air. He believes it makes more sense to eliminate the ridge vent and concentrate on getting the humditity and hot air out of the attic all year long.
Can someone on staff give me their opinion on this before I eliminate the ridge vent. They told my current fan should cover my attic sq. footage.
