"Chie, that is interesting. The fact that you went so far with your residence vs. a rental is a wonderful example of incentive. On a rental property where you don't pay the utilities, you have very little incentive to make large EE…"

Nate Adams replied to Jack Baikoff's discussion Just how much does adding air barrier to a knee wall insulation increase it's performance?
"Honest Building Science question on this topic: If the drywall of the knee wall is well sealed (meaning outlets, top and bottom plates, etc) as well as the floor joist below, if there are fiberglass batts in the knee wall, is is really that…"

"You caught me being lazy, I don't have time to go look up the ASTM air barrier test it passed at the moment. The material can be left exposed, it's inexpensive, it provides an air barrier, it's easy to install - I like it as a…"

"Sort of. 3.5" fiberglass batts can be R-11, R-13, or R-15. An R-15 batt weighs a ton in comparison to R-11. You have to get in the 2-2.5 pounds per cubic foot range to get over R-4/inch with fiberglass. If you squash an R-30 batt, you lose…"

"James, you could use a better tone there... Like I said, that was early on. I used fiberglass because the cavities were chock full of knob and tube that I wasn't going to change. I didn't know to block the joists yet. We are in a practice…"
