Ventilation question

Recommended Posts

This one is bugging me. Three year old home. The roofer cut roof vents at both sides of the ridge. There are soffit vents as well. Am I wrong in thinking, that the roof vents, will pretty much vent back and forth, in that limited area? My description may be tough to read/understand. The pics should explain better;) Simple gable roof.

Any chance of doing a rough calc of ceiling area/300, which can be reduced if most is in upper third of height?

I agree that it looks small, but I don't think these two will just whistle at each other. Enough heat builds up, they will both be forced into chimney duty.
