insulation in celing of bed room question


hello i was repainting celing today in bed room after scraping some peeling paint and letting the joint compund dry a full day. today in ny it was abot 90 degrees and the celing of the bed room was hot not like hot that it would burn u but warmish i would sayw. my question is i have seen insulation in the atticon the floor which would be the celing of the bedrooms. but its old and very brittle like it would come apart when u touch it.my question is should that attic insulation be replaced? or should i just remove all insulation in attic. and leave it bare. i have a ridgevent and also theree roof vents plus gables. any information would be great

Re: insulation in celing of bed room question


Some will remove the old ugly insulation, but never leave it empty. Either add a lot over the top or remove and then add a lot. Not sure of your climate requirements, but r-50 would be a good start.

As for the ventilation, soffits or other low positioned vents are necessary to create the air flow with the other high vents.
