I have a quick question, did an insurance underwriting inspection for a client down here is southwest Florida. It was about 87 degrees outside went up to the attic to check the roof decking insured had the attic propped open a little. I asked the insured and he stated that it was very hot inside there in the summer. Went into the attic and felt like to be 120 to 130 degrees in there. The soffits weren’t blocked by insulation, however there was a ridge vent but it seems like it was blocked.
is this cause from poor ventilation as I learned for the NACHI Class on ventilation. I’ve also learned from another home inspector that they stated that the attics should be no more than 10 to 20 degrees hotter than the air outside.
Is this true, just looking for some input.
