I have some kneewall that's insulated with R-13 Batts. The back of the kneewall is not sealed. I'm been thinking about sealing it for a while. The reason that I hesitated is because it's a lot of work and quite some investment. I keep thinking if it worth it.
I used a infrared thermometer to measure the inside of the kneewall and discovered it's about the same temperature as other segments of interior wall (that's not kneewall). Does this mean that it may not be necessary to work on the kneewall, since it is not worth off then other walls?
That means the heater in the room is warming the walls. Loss of heat at the knee wall may be pronounced and rapid due to the minimal insulation being exposed to wind-washing there. Block the air above and below in the joist bays, right up to the baffles w. f.g. in plastic garbage bags: http://www.simplesavings.coop/simple...ee%20walls.pdf

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
