I have an attic with a quite steep slope (maybe 8 vert by 12 hor) that has no eaves. The only vents are one gable vent at each end. I notices icicles during the winter and someone told me that asphalt shingles are cooked. This all sound like bad ventilati
On one side of the house, I would put a fan in the gable vent blowing cold air in 1″ pipes that would outlet air at the bottom of each spaces between rafters (where soffit vent would be if there was eaves). In the gable vent of the other side of the attic, I would use a second ventilator blowing hot air out that would be collected from a perforated pipe running along the ridge beam. Both ventilators would be synchronized to run based on thermostat or humidistat. Does that sound crazy?
