Cooling an Attic with Soffit Vents
An attic that isn’t ventilated can act like a sauna and get extremely hot. An easy way to resolve this is by adding soffit vents. These vents should be installed underneath the eaves of your house and will cross-circulate the air in your attic by bringing in fresh air and allowing heated air to escape through gable or ridge vents. By adding soffit vents you will save more in air-conditioning costs and make trekking into your attic more bearable.
