There's more to attic insulation than attic insulation: There is venting, air sealing, and misery

How to reduce ice dams, improve thermal performance, and boost durability of homes with vented attics

I have been doing energy audits for about six years now. I enjoy studying the building science and putting it into use to solve problems for customers. The only problem is that the work is typically in the attic or basement, which are two miserable and challenging places to work.

A drawing of a roof/wall ventilation scheme is easy to understand and looks easy to install. On paper, it is.

In practice, it is anything but easy. Lying on rips of plywood across ceiling joists and reaching deep into bird’s mouth cavities fishing around for fibrous insulation — usually pushing against your face, arms, and shoulders, is no picnic. It is often hot and always dusty. more
