I have a hip roof with less than 10 ft of ridge each on two separate sections of the roof so I have pot vents. Would adding a ridge vent help or would it just interfere with the pot vents working properly?
I have 10 pot vents on my roof (5 on each of two sections) and the home has about a 2400SF perimeter - roof is generally a 12/12 pitch. Thought about adding a ridge vent but read something about mixing vents might create a short circuit so that one or more of the exhaust vents would just take air from another exhaust vent
Attic is hot but its Ga and a black roof so I doubt any amount of venting will make it close to outside ambient temperature. Put a 120 degree thermometer in the attic on a 95 degree day and it reached 120 by 3:00 in afternoon so I imagine it was 130 or 140 by late afternoon
