I want to reduce the heat in my attic to store more items that are affected by heat. I'm looking at foam and the heat reflector called e-shield. This is for the rafters. What would you suggest?
I live in Michigan in a ranch house. My house is shaped like a "T". On the right side, I have a garage with a firewall with no access to the attic. The garage is about 20' in width. On the left side of the "T", I have a family room with a cathedral ceiling with no access to the attic also. It is also about 20' feet wide. I am trying to bring in fresh air to these areas, but there are no soffits in that area. Our kitchen and dining room, which are underneath that area, are noticeably hotter than the rest of the house. I would like to know, what is the best way to bring in fresh air into those areas and have it vent out through the ridge vent. I am very frustrated, please reply.
