vapour barriers

Posted by Erica on June 25th, 1998 06:21 PM

I've been told that vapour barriers are not good in old homes, and only right for new construction. Another person has told me that a vapour barrier is important with insulation, even in an old house. Does anybody know the truth here? It is very confusing to get two opposite stories. Obviously I don't want to do the wrong thing when I insulate my 70 year old home soon. Please shed some light here for me.
