This past week I had a new roof put on my mfg home... The roofers removed the intake vent for the blend air system (the one that was about a foot high) and replaced it with a normal roof vent which is only 2 inches off the surface of the roof.. I think being this close to the roof will create a heat...

Bathroom Vent - Filter???

I know it sounds strange but when the bathroom exhaust vents are off and the heating/cooling system is on (with Blend Air on), apparently the air intake requirement for the heating / cooling furnace exceeds that of what is available in the house and outside air is drawn in trough both of the vathroo...
