Reflective Insulation in Unvented Roof

I’m remodeling with an unvented Cathedral ceiling in Climate Zone 4.  I have asphalt shingles, underlayment the rafter cavities that are 9″ deep which were filled with faced High density R-30.  Adding exit vents is not a feasible approach and I don’t want to use spray foam for a couple reasons.  A contractor today came by and recommended Reflective Insulation (Sold under the Low-E brand) and all kind of reasons why.  Reduces transfer, keeps hot from meeting cold thus eliminates condensation, excellent moisture barrier, cheap, easy to install, etc.  He gave me a sample, reflective on both sides, small 1/8″…

Periodic “gym sock” smell from mini-split heads (since install)

It dissipates after a few minutes, but it really unpleasant when it happens.…

Extreme Humidity Variations seasonally

Hello (and thank you for reading)! Built 2005, I purchased a 925 sf home with 1 car attached garage in the northeast (MA).First spring I noticed higher humidity levels, worse going into summer, even Fall. Went up to mid 70% and up a bit at times. AC brings it down in summer but my master closet (all the closets) smell not moldy but musty. Clothes have a dampness. Damp Rid hanging bags in the closets fill in 3 weeks. In winter however, the RH drops to 28, and down to 24 at times. So uncomfortable. The main roof covering the house itself,…
