Hello and welcome to the service. I will agree with your diagnosis as well. Turning off the pilot might completely stop the issue. As far as the roof ventilation I am not certain whether it is going to help or how much it will help in regards ***** ***** problem. Of course, the concept is right. Heat that accumulates inside your attic might also contribute to the condensation at the top of the chase. Do not forget that warm air holds more water than cold air. In addition, proper ventilation is really important for every house so even if it does not help with the condensation it will help in other areas such as preserving your roof (I am assuming you have roof shingles). Please let me know if you have further questions. Also, let me know whether the issue is resolved after you turned off the pilot. In addition, I would really appreciate your feedback by clicking accept and rating my service. Best of luck!!
