My house in south Florida was built in the 50's
I live there for the last 15 years and I knew the previous owner that lived there for 1o years. That means the atic insulation is at minimum 25 years old. The electrical company offered to do a new one almost for free, but they won't remove the old one. I contacted a private company and they quoted me $1,400.00 just to remove the old one. This is too much for me at this moment, but the offer from the electrical company is only good until next month. What should be done? Is it OK to blown the new insulation on top of the old one?
Probably, but it depends on what kind yoú already have, and whether or not there is a vapor retarder. Ask a local insulation contractor for advice, or ask at your local building department, or ask an architect that knows what he or she is doing.
