Installing rigid foam on a bedroom ceiling for increased efficiency
Is it possible to install rigid foam over my existing plaster ceilings to decrease the heat loss in a bedroom? I would be looking to install tin ceiling over the rigid foam for a fire barrier (and aesthetics). The attic has approximately r50 of cellulose already and I’m finding the room isn’t holding temperature very well at all. I keep the house at a baseline temperature with the heatpump and use electric heat in the bedroom to supplement. Once the electric heat kicks off I find the room temperature drops very quickly. The exterior walls in the house have blown in fiberglass but the bedroom walls are the interior of our mansard roof and I’m not sure if they have the same insulation or not.
