Insulation choice — Need advice for a 1000-sq.-ft. new house in Maine
I was referred to GBA to ask a few questions about insulating a small 1000 square-foot house in Maine. I’m Trying to get an informed opinion about best insulation option for a “good enough house”.
I have been recommended to use dense pack cellulose and 1.5 blue foam board on exterior with or without foil.
Another opinion is that I should use open cell foam. As an alternative healthcare provider, I see many people that are sick with mold and that have had air quality issues in their homes resulting in their current sickness. Can you help me make a decision that doesn’t break the bank and maintains my health as I build a small 2×6 stick built home with 200 K budget. If you have other related advise on ERV systems please let it rip-
