How do I insulate brick wall from the heated side of house?
I am working on a 1978 built, brick house in Juneau, Alaska. Was seeing moisture on drywall and some mold. After removing drywall found 2X2 nailers, 2 feet on center nailed at the grout line. Between the nailers was 1.5 inches of white bead board. Found a few places where the air was leaking in and believe that they have been taken care of.
wall is above grade
appears to be single, standard size, red brick constructed wall
I am not sure how to continue…how much insulation can I add for the climate and not damage the brick?
