attic vent and insulation


The hatch to get into the attic is in the garage, which I don't heat in the winter so I dont think it matters if its weathered stripped or not I have another question but will post a picture when I get home instead of trying to discribe it.

attic vent and insulation


Another thing that I have been wondering since I moved into the house. Under are kitchen dining room and loving room (the part of the house where I have been up in the attic) it has a crawl space. There is no insulation in there at all should there be insulation in there too?

Yes, R-value per location. The first inch (R-3.6) gives a 80% reduction in heat flow; http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...,d.cGE&cad=rja

PS, air seal first.
