Hey again, roofing pros!
I’m buying a house that has a whole house fan vented into the attic. I was reading old forum posts here (I’m addicted – so much knowledge!) and ran across an old thread about mold and a whole-house fan. The overwhelming consensus was to remove the whole house fan to avoid the extra moisture in the attic.
Are whole-house fans vented into the attic generally a bad idea, or just in certain situations?
I was planning on at least seasonally covering up my new fan since I prefer the central A/C and precious few days here in NE Kansas lend themselves to its use anyway. But now I’m considering taking it out all together.
The attic doesn’t have much ventilation – just soffit intake vents (3’x4") every 10+ feet (total of 8 on the house) and two simple turbines for exhaust, only one of which still spins easily (attic is 24’x41’, 4-12 roof). No gable vents or the like.
