I am going to hang new drywall in my kitchen. One of the walls is on the perimeter of the house so I figured I should re-insulate as well. I was recommended to get at least R-18 insulation given where I live. I'm looking at wall insulation sizes and I keep seeing 15 inches wide, but if studs are 16 inches apart, wouldn't this be too small? I never installed insulation before, but I would think it has to be in there pretty snug to be effective. Also, I'm not exactly sure how to determine how thick the insulation should be. Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as determining a size? Thanks.
