I had new roof put on in August with Ridge Vents.
I live in a house built in the 60s, it has a closet in the utility room that houses my AC heater unit & hot water heater. My heater & hot water heater is gas. It has a screened vent in the closet going to the attic. Last night I noticed while no air was blowing, I walked into kitchen & utility room, I felt some cool air coming from the 3 air intake Vents. Is this normal now since I have Ridge Vents & 2 gable eaves? The wind was blowing 30 mph yesterday. I opened up the door and it was cool in closet.
My question is is that OK. I know the closet can get warm in the hot summer months. What temperature should you maintain this closet for summer & winter.
Should I call my AC man or roofer? Or is this normal?
