Compare relative effectiveness and costs of several passive methods for ventilating or reducing heat loads in attics of HfH and manufactured housing, in order to reduce space conditioning loads and energy use. After a literature review of six methods, the two chosen to measure and analyze were: radiant roof barriers and an evaporative roof spray system.
