Roxul for insulating and air sealing finished condo
I am trying to decrease air currents and increase insulation in my finished condo. I have large floor to ceiling windows, old baseboards at the base of those windows, and a few columns enclosed by drywall around the perimeter. The columns are loosely filled with pink fiberglass insulation. Air currents are currently coming out of the base of some of these columns and also from beneath some of the baseboards.
– Would it be an acceptable solution to loosely spread Roxul RockFill inside the columns via the wall outlets to at least try to cover the base? One concern I have is that they are already filled with pink insulation, and I have been told that air current is actually necessary for this kind of insulation to work.
– Would tightly Packing Roxul RockFill into the crevices and gaps around the base of the columns and baseboard serve as an appropriate solution for air sealing and insulating?
