To vent or not to vent?
Hello. I’m retro fitting insulation into a kneewall and dormer space. The only venting at this time is a gamble vent in the attic crawl space. I would like to bring these spaces into the thermal envelope but I’m not sure how to approach this. The bay windows obstruct any potential soffit venting so venting the roof deck there would be limited only to the gable vent at the top of a vent chute. Does that force the solution to an unvented attic approach? What would you recommend in this scenario? Thanks in advance, Mike
