14—FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 2004 ON THE MARKET How Continued from Page 11 When installing blankets yourself, don't be tempted to skip small spaces. Take time to do a good job on the narrow stud and joist spaces. Cut the blanket to fit. Insulation should never be compressed to fit, but should be cut to size. A careless job of fitting greatly reduces its effectiveness. Always follow the direction sheets included in the package with the insulation. Leave eave vents uncovered. The airflow will prevent moisture buildup and reduce attic temperatures. As a general rule, 1 square foot of free vent area should be provided for every 150 square feet of attic floor, when no vapor barrier is used. With a vapor barrier, 1 square foot of vent area per 300 square feet of attic floor is recommended. Also, keep insulation a minimum of 3 inches from recessed light fixtures. Use unfaced insulation in the space between a masonry chimney and wood framing. To assure adequate ventilation, there must be a gap of about 2 inches between the insulation and the underside of the roof. The gap should extend from a vent along the roof ridge to the soffit (the enclosed channels which run along a roof's eaves). To keep insulation away from hot spots (chimneys, lighting fixtures, soffits) you can buy barriers of stiff material that fit between joists, or you can make your own barriers from heavy cardboard. Fold the ends of the barriers so they fit against the sides of joists; attach them to the joists with staples or small nails. FROM A READER "I differ with the advice you gave concerning hot water backing up into the plumbing system. Based on the question, I would guess that their system is suffering from thermal expansion. This is not uncommon and can be solved by installing an expansion tank. The tank will absorb the expanding hot water. As the water cools down, it returns back into the system. Installing a check valve in this situation, can cause pressure buildup and possibly damage to the plumbing system." Your comments are appreciated, as that indeed could be the situation. It's best to have the plumbing system checked by a professional plumber to identify the exact cause of the problem, which was: cold water faucet emitting warm water and requiring a lengthy period to bring in a cooler water supply.
