I'm trying to keep my attic cooler! I have a small house with no soffits (no overhang or eaves, so no place to install them!) but gable vents at both ends and a gable fan blowing outward. Recently, ridge vents were installed - which I know is a very questionable decision in combination with powered ventilation.
Without powered ventilation, the attic gets much too hot for my taste - over 40F above ambient, and it's really making keeping the house cool. But I'm wondering what the best way to get the gable fan and the ridge vent to work together. Would it be better to reverse the flow on the gable fan, so it pulls air in, to force air out at the ridge vents?
