Gable fan vs. gable vent
Climate 4c. Wondering if I could get some opinions on this. After reading some articles on here I may be changing my mind.
My current set up is soffit intake with a gable vent on one side, and a gable vent/fan on the other. The fan however is a 10 speed variable fan, dependent upon level of temp, and/or humidity.
Im considering removing the fan altogether, but it rarely gets up to much speed anyways since our temperatures aren’t all that extreme out here and humidity isn’t either. So it usually sits at around speed 1-4 (lower end speeds). Then shuts off after a little, and turns off and on intermittently throughout the day.
eventually I will be re-roofing and either putting a ridge vent in, or some roof vents near the ridge, and closing off the gable vents. I believe those two are my best options for unfinished attic venting. A ridge vent being optimal.
but for me as of now, what is best? My current set up, with my “smart” fan on one end and gable vent on other with soffit intake, or remove the fan and allow the gable vents to exhaust “naturally”.
