Thanks to all who have responded. Lots of good ideas.
Here are some other facts: Roof pitch is 7" in 12". Asphalt shingles. House is 2 yrs old. Gutters all around. Ridge venting at top but is covered in snow (I think the ridge vents would do the job if they were exposed). No gables available.
I was thinking about taking the gutters off but the problem of the higher temp in the attic should be lowered first IMO. The HVAC ducting is not covered by the blown in insulation (just the insulating blankets that are normally wrapped around them...insulating guy said they are about an R-8), but I will be having additional insulation blown in to cover this ducting next week. Hopefully this will reduce the heat radiating to the attic area.
My possible solution now (if the added insulation doesn't reduce the temp enough) is to run 6" ducting from within 6" of the top of the attic down to an inline ducting fan (need to find a quiet, low energy fan) and then into the unheated garage via a regular register. Does this sound like it would work? This will be done only if the added insulation doesn't bring the temp down to below freezing. I'm assuming this system will bring the temp down enough to keep the attic below 32 degrees.
Again, thanks a bunch for your input.
