cold store

Postby Dasha » Mon Oct 06, 2008 4:36 pm

I know that warm air rises but my first floor bathroom which is situated above a store room on the ground floor is very cold in the winter time. The wooden floor in the bathroom is the store room ceiling. Is there an easy way to insulate it? Does cold air rise or is it just draughty, even though I've tried to seal up all the gaps.
Thanks* :?

there are many materials to use fiberglass,celotex boards etc.
I would suggest using fiberglass wool its cheaper, just pack it in the whole ceiling and board over.

Fiberglass is a nice choice for this purpose. But I wanna know that
what is the issue in the bathroom ventilation.
Do you want to escape the bathroom from cold?
