SHOULD VENTILATION FANS NEED TO INSTALL ON A NEW METAL ROOFING TO COOL MY BIG ATTIC?

Every attic / home needs to be analyzed individually but, generally speaking, yes, most homes ( as well as building codes) require good attic ventilation which consists of both intake and exhaust vents. Good ventilation increases energy efficiency, avoids ice damming, and helps avoid condensation. A great source of ventilation information is available at www.airvent.com

Passive...passive...passive. Ventilation should always be passive as a default. Does the home have soffits?
