I’m going for the good middle ground on this one (somewhere between satisfying and sufficing). This goal has been hanging on my list like a dingleberry for years. When I first added it, I was envisioning new attic insulation along with in-wall insulation. Since then, pigeons have invaded and been chased out and left voluminous mounds of poop as a cruel pigeon gift.
This Wed/Thu I’m having a pest removal firm remove all the contaminated insulation (the ‘geons were removed a couple years ago). They’ll let off some enzyme bombs and clear out all the poop. Next, they’ll insulate the attice with about 18” of blow-in insulation (it has about 8” of batting now). This should make a big difference with heat retention in the winter and heat reduction in the summer.
Wish me luck!
