    Cool attic ventilation

    I live in Florida. My roof is a hip with a ridgeline vent and soffits and it gets real hot in my attic. The solar powered fan is perfect, except for all the fans I found are only rated for 110mph winds (hurricanes do better) or less. Is there an electrical fan system that would make my attic ridgeline ventilation more efficient without putting a hole in my roof?

    I'm thinking it has more to do with poor insulation then ventilation.
    Since ventilation isn't going to make it any warmer during the winter sounds like you need to address the insulation which will help with keeping you cooler in the summer and warm in the winter.
