Over Insulate

Can you do damage by over insulating an attic. I live in chicago, which calls for R-49 in attic. Due to the combination of bundles I will in up with R-55 in attic. Will this cause any damage? :D

Re: Over Insulate

Only to your utility bills.

There is no such thing as "too much inslation", as long as you don't interfere with ventilation.

There just comes a point where the payback isn't worth the cost of adding more insulation.

Okay thanks Dave, Up into the attic I go.
