Insulation recommendations for Clime Zone 3, Spartanburg, SC
Hello. Building a basement+ first floor+second floor new home. Using Superior walls for basement. These already have insulation in them and the space will be conditioned (shop space). Foot print is 32′ wide x 75′ long… floors stacked on top of one another. Roof pitch is steep 14/12. Metal roof.
No HVAC systems will be in attic. Mechanical closet on second floor will handle HVAC]
A linear vent free fireplace on 1st floor will heat home into in winters.
What would be a cost effective solution for insulating this home?
Thinking blown attic and spray first and second floor walls with a closed cell foam. Is this overkill in my area?
Thanks for your advice.
