Does it matter what side of batts insulation kraft paper is installed?
I’m having difficulty finding a concrete answer on this from reputable sources. There are a few blogs, including one on GBA, that indicates that it doesn’t matter. However, some industry professionals have indicated otherwise.
I’m hoping for some opinions and input about if it is necessary to install fiberglass batts with the paper backing on the bottom between the warm side of the home and the insulation, or is it acceptable to have the paper backing on the cold side of the attic.
Thank you in advance!
