My one story ranch has three different types of insulation. Should I start over?
I bought a house that has an extremely hot attic. There is insulation all over the place. Batts, two different blown in, and sections of bats just thrown around not even laid straight.
Inspector said soffits were covered. I know I need to get insulation off the soffits, but I’m wondering if I should start over with a uniform type and thickness of insulation. Attic vents? Supposedly there are ridge vents installed.
The air conditioner seems to work hard even though it’s only a year old. What’s my optimal plan? There are no ducts in the attic. One section (my single rectangular ranch has three different roof heights in a row) has been vaulted and has a tiny attic at one end.
