Insulation - Spots with Super High R-Value - Theories on Effects?
I just finished insulating with havelock wool, but still really curious as to how it will work out...mainly because of this:
Havelock recommended 3 bags of wool for a "well insulated" build (HR 350, non-EXT). We used 5 instead! And stuffed like 5 inches+ into all the pre-built corner compartments, filling the entire space between the van walls and the T&G walls (sorry not good with the terminology, some of you use parts of this space for cabinets, but lying the T&G flat almost requires covering it), then did the rest of the walls about 1.5-2". Also did the floor and ceiling, about 2" each.
I'm wondering if all that extra insulation in those corner areas will help much? Or is this more of a weakest link type of equation? I'm thinking a little of both, but haven't found anything relating this. Surely that space will hold more heat right?
Some of you must have thought about this while you were insulating all those compartments and some of you have got to understand the effects better than a noob like me!
