I’m a homeowner in Connecticut with a raised ranch – it’s really simple, it’s a big rectangle :mrgreen: 52 feet long by 26 feet wide.
The roof is approximately 5 years old and is a simple 3 tab that was on the house when I purchased it. Last year I had central a/c installed and because the house is a raised ranch all the a/c venting was installed in the attic.
In the summer the attic is extremely hot to the point that I feel it is effecting the performance of the A/C.
Currently I have two gable vents at each end of the house with some very small soffit vents. House was built in 1967.
Does anyone have any idea how much it would cost to retrofit a ridge vent into the roof? I was trying to avoid doing it until I was ready for a new roof however with electricity prices being what they are I am thinking it would not be a bad idea and would also extend the life of the roof.
Any ideas on a rough cost are appreciated.
