Ridge Vent Filter Question
I have a ridge vent that also has a “weather filter” I contacted the manufacturer and asked them what the felt filter does and they indicated that it keeps the “garbage out.” My filter appears to be blocked by dust and it is ripped in several places. I am wondering if I should just rip it out since it looks to be blocked anyways. What would you all recommend, and is this filter very important? I am in zone 6. Thanks!
