    Default Snow covering exterior roof vents.

    Here in Minnesota we get a lot of snow. This year my roof vents are covered with snow and there is no ventilation in the attic (I have a hip roof). I am thinking of getting a couple of power vents to prevent this from happening again. I need to control the vents manually so I can turn them on when we get a lot of snow. Also, should I replace all the vents (about 7) are just a few? And should I replace all the soffits to enable better air flow with the power vents? The ones I have do not have too many vents in them. Does anyone have a formula for determining the area of the vent intake (and outtake) vs the size for the attic space (or roof area)?

    Hi, If you fix your heat loss problem, you will lower your heat bill and not have to worry about the vents. Thanks
