I was too lazy to scan through all the search results I got from this
group. Perhaps some of you would indulge me for asking a question
that's probably been asked in this newsgroup before:
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a gable mounted attic fan
versus a roof mounted one?
Personally I would try to provide passive (no motor) ventilation if at
all possible in most areas. There are some areas and constructions where
this will not work well however. In that case either gable or roof works
well, sometimes one or the other may be easier to put in but that depends on
Be sure to have sufficient inlets and sufficient capacity for your roof
area. No undersized system is any good.
