Need more NFVA for a whole house fan
Hello, I own a 1939 1.5 storey house in Newport, VT, and my structural engineer told me that the (original) gable vents in my small attic weren’t big enough to support a whole house fan. I would very much like to add one because it can get very hot in the upstairs .5 storey bedrooms in the afternoons and evenings and I do not want to add central air conditioning.
The attic is insulated with pink sheet insulation both on the underside of the roof and the floor of the attic. There are currently no moisture problems.
How does one add more vents that will not destroy the current look of the house, and what kind of professional should I approach with this question?
