So I just finished adding another layer of R30 roll insulation to my attic and I've noticed the difference already. Its a lot warmer in my house.
But while in my attic I did notice an uninsulated area above my 2 closets that are on either side of my front door. The problem is the house is 2 stories and the closets are on the first floor. I can see that there is no insulation on the ceiling of the closet and if I go into the closet the ceiling feels really cold.
So my question is this. I have 1 roll of R30 insulation left over. Do I cut that up and drop the insulation down from the attic to the first floor and hopefully cover the entire area or should I look at another options? Maybe use blow in insulation?
The area above each closet is like 2.5 feet by 3 feet and I only have access from the attic which is a 15 foot drop from attic to ceiling.
might work and I can't see it hurting anything.
cut it into fist size pieces and 'filler up' until you get a decent layer in there.
of course, there is likely no heat in the closet, so that might be part of why it would be cold.
