My attic does not have enough insulation and I would like to add some but my attic is a little different from what I have seen on ATOH and other home improvement shows.
Specifically, my attic does not have any air holes in the eaves or soffits. Instead, my attic has two windows on opposite sides of the attic that have louvers (always open) and screening to vent the attic.
Most of the time that I see on TV, the requirement for attic insulation is to place some type of 'channel' near the base to allow air from the soffit vents to circulate up to the top of the attic. This channel keeps the insulation away from the lower roof.
My question is this: since my attic has different venting, do I need this channel?
I don't think I need it but I want to hear what other people say before I add insulation to my attic.
