Can I use different types of vents on my roof?

Is It Possible To Use Different Types of Roofing Vents?

No. Proper ventilation of a roof system occurs when the soffit area at the bottom of an attic pulls air inwards and the roof vents in the top of the attic space release air for complete attic air transfer. When using multiple types of roof vents a stronger roof vent can cause a weaker roof vent to become an intake. The weaker vent can begin to pull outside air inwards rather than release air from the attic space and can result in a reduction in air transfer.
