Attic Insulation

This attic has a low R-Value (resistance to heat) and is not blocking the heat from escaping from the living area of the home. The insulation is not thick enough to stop cold air from entering the living area during the cooler months. This insulation is the original with some more insulation added on top at a later time.

Can lights with light visible from inside of the home

There are numerous openings in the attic that are allowing conditioned air to exit the living area. The air escaping is a major contributor to the stack effect of the home. Warm air in the attic is pulling conditioned air through the openings as it exits the vents. The home has 70 can lights that are not sealed.
