I have an older home (1935) its like a "T" shape.. i have a gable vent at either end of the top of the tee and for some reason, a window at the bottom of the tee's leg. I am installing a power vent fan in one gable vent. there is no ridge vent or soffit vents. will this be enough to vent it or should I cut in a ridge vent? will the fact that there are no soffit vents be an issue? its got ope eves and the roof extends out over the outer walls about 16 inches as it was once a summer cottage near Lake Zoar here in CT. and im guessing it had a lack of gutters.. anyhow, no soffit vents were installed and id hate to ruin the nice trim work there now.
onto insulation.. none up in the attic at all except for the 1.25" ridgid foam sheets laid down on the plywood floor. none in the ceiling below the attic either. do I need to rip out the floor or just the foam sheets before i insulate with the rolls of pink stuff? there seems to be some mould on the sheething of the roof and some of the shingles on the roof look like they were super heated.. im guessing from the stack of foam sheets someone had them stuck betreew the rafters at one time.. also there is an ice melt cable in the gutter on the north side of the house. help!! oh, the house is smaller, 1200+ sq foot.
