Hello to all! I’m looking at bringing the attic of a 1940s home into conditioned space
I have a few concerns: 1) there is currently a mix of blown-in cellulose insulation and fiberglass batts – does this need to be removed? 2) there’s quite a bit of K&T wiring on the attic floor and some on the lower part of the rafters – is that a concern? 3) I’ve read and agree that closed cell spray foam is probably the best option for our zone (5), however, given cost I’m investigating the possibility of about 9″ of open cell Agribalance (Demilec) – any thoughts on this? Thanks so much.
