I am new to homeownership, home maintenance/repair, and to this forum.
Even more, my wife and I recently fell in love with and purchased our first home.
Constructed in 1948, our place had all the character and then some that we dreamed about. The previous owners kept it in pristine condition but with it's age it isn't without projects.
With the winter now here, we are noticing that the place isn't insulated very well. There isn't any type of insulation barrier behind the walls (my father-in-law and I recently repaired a hole in a bedroom wall and there wasn't anything but an air space behind the drywall)
What common practices are there for 'beefing' up insulation in older construction homes? Any experienced tips would be very helpful.
