I’ve been reading alot here and trying to soak it all in but want to make sure Im on the right track.
House was build in 1958….I’ve done alot of remodeling and replaced the insulation in the dinning room and a few bedrooms.
Before we bought the house the previous owners build an addition, a living room and a bedroom. These two rooms are FREEZING.
They didnt leave me room to get under the floor in the new addition….it’s a block foundation and I’d have to break out a few blocks to even think about crawling in there on my back. I can barely see under there but it is insulated and has a vapor barrier on the dirt floor. I believe the insulation is R-19. It’s also R-19 in the attic which isnt very accessable either. So R-19 must also be in the walls which I cant afford to rip down to check.
SO…..I’m considering blown in insulation for the attic and the foam board for the floor if I can get a big enough hole in the block to pull the sheets in there.
Am I correct in thinking this will help warm the rooms? And what R value should I be looking at creating?
We live in Carver, Ma and it’s getting very cold here.
