I am getting differing opinions on the following question:
I have a second story hip roof over a 1500 sq ft attic. I am installing a new roof. I presently have soffit vents and three roof exhaust vents. One vent is a power vent and two are static vents about 4 feet either side of the power vent. My question is…should I eliminate the static vents? Are they reducing the effect of the power vent by not getting maximum air flow through the soffit vents? Would I be better off with four static vents? My ridge is about 20 feet long. Would I be better off with a high flow ridge vent and ditch the other vents?
