I’ve heard you say many times that using an attic fan sucks cooled air right out of the house and that it’s better to rely on soffit and ridge vents. Is that still true if you ONLY have soffit vents? We don’t have ridge vents and my husband reminds me how we fight with the extreme heat on the second floor of our home.
Also, is it still better to shut off the attic fan with just the soffit vents providing attic ventilation and just count on the A/C now, or do you have another suggestion to help with our attic ventilation?
Live in high desert, on windy days the attic door is pulled up by the suction force of the wind. What can I do in the attic to prevent this from happening?
Sounds like you may not have enough intake vents. Does your roof have soffit vents? Gable vents?
