Answer by  Conroy (35)

Make sure your roof is properly vented to allow air to flow in and out to help keep the air moving.

Dead air space is a common problem. The easiest remedy is to install air sofets under the eaves of the structure. These sofits need to be evenly spaced along the perimiter of the structure to ensure proper air flow. This can done by anyone, but I would recommend using a professional roofer.
