The whole perimeter is like that, with all the second-floor ceilings having an angled section about three feet long that runs parallel to the roof. As far as I can tell, the space between the ceiling and the roof (where they are parallel) is stuffed with blown-in insulation, completely blocking the soffit vents.
My question is how is this supposed to work? If I remove the insulation that's blocking the vents, some of my ceiling will be uninsulated.
Also, is there any unbiased organization/person I can hire to look at my situation and tell me what, if anything, I need to do. Obviously, any company I hire to look at it will tell me I need work done and that they are the best company to do it.
I appreciate any help I can get, as my electric bills are ridiculous.
