Default House air sealing/insulation project.

So my wife and I purchased a brick house built in 76. 2x4 exterior wallas with double pane windows. The attic has roughly r39. My plan is to move some insulation and air seal any holes or seams. I’ll also be installing the soffit vents the hold the insulation back.

While I’m up there I’ll be adding 4 ceiling fans. The house only one ceiling fan in the main living room. None of the bedrooms have any kind of ceiling light or anything. I will also be installing the whole house fan that I removed from my old house before I sold it. I plan to start this project by this weekend as I will have some free time this holiday season. I will be sure to post pictures and things as I go.

I’ve already done a few things to the house like repair/replace broken/missing door gaskets on some of the doors. I still have to do the basement door.

Edit. I will be adding a few more inches of blow in insulation to bring me up to about r50
