Q:

We have a Cape Cod-style home with attic vents on each end of the attic, along with a ridge vent. The attic is insulated. These vents are very helpful in the hot summer. However, in the winter the upstairs is very cold. I want to cover the attic vents in the winter when the air doesn't need to flow through like in the summer. Your thoughts?
