I have an old house c.1910 with a full attic and no venting or insulation.
I'm trying to figure out a way to insulate and vent the attic while preserving the look of the house. I don't have any gables I can vent and I don't want to affect the look of the soffets by sticking a bunch of vents into them. Can I draw internal air up to a ridge vent? How would I prevent loss of warm air out the ridge vent in winter? Am I boxing myself into a corner?
