We insulated our upstairs bedrooms as there was no insulation before,but they now feel colder on a cold night snd they are so warm in the summer,nearly uncomfortably so.Why is this?
The bedrooms are right up into the roofspace with dormer windows and we insulated across the top of the ceiling of the bedrooms,down the slope of bedroom sloping ceiling walls and then across the top of the downstairs rooms out towards the outer walls.Any suggestions?
it is because your insulation is locking the heat in during summer - like an oven. Then it is cold in winter because the heat is not making it up there (strange). Walls also account for a lot of heat loss/gain.
