Roof vents

Unneeded gable vents should be covered

Q.    In a recent article you advised not to use a gable vent in conjunction with a ridge vent. I recently bought a new house that has both.  Should I cover the gable vents?

A.    Yes, you should cover the gable vents. If you have access into the attic, screw a piece of plywood painted matte black over the gable vents. I assume that this house has continuous soffit vents and that there is no obstruction blocking the air flow between the soffit and the ridge vents.
