50 – 80% of your heat loss is out the roof, consequently, it’s the most important place to insulate well! To poorly insulate any portion of your building envelope, is similar to leaving the entry door open. It discounts all the good insulation.
Always place your HVAC 100% inside the building envelope in conditional space.
