Attic fan vs. ridge vent only vs. ridge vent with edge vent

I am in the process of getting quotes to refinish my roof and have received conflicting advice regarding what I should do for ventilation. I have an unfinished attic with a \~1100 sf ceiling that currently only has an attic fan. The roof also does not have a soffit entrance. I have received the following options from the quotes I have received: * Stick with having only one attic fan * Close attic fan and install only one ridge vent * Close attic fan and install one ridge vent and one ridge vent edge I currently don’t experience much trouble with the current setup just having the attic fan, since we’re not in the attic much and our electric bills aren’t too high in the summer. I also plan on staying in the current house \~5 years so I’m ok with not necessarily going with the best option since there is a price difference between the different options that gets more and more expensive.
