Insulating knee wall space
I have a standard knee wall that I would like to insulate. It is a non ventilated space so I am concerned about mold. The advice seems to be all over the map. Should I use a triangular approach putting batts on the attic floor, wall and rafters? That would seem to cover everything, but I have also read that you shouldn’t insulate the rafters.Should I use faced or unfaced batts ( does it really matter?) And, I assume that if I used faced batts the vapor barrier should face the attic space. Can I put foam board over the batts against the interior wall to get added r value or would that create a space for mold?
