Adding attic insulation to lower heating & cooling costs

I was drenched with sweat the entire time

The weather in our area requires some genre of temperature control just about all year round. Our summers are sizzling plus humid with rapidly increasing temperatures often up in the mid nineties. The winters were brutal with below freezing conditions plus ungodly windchill. The cost of heating plus cooling adds up to around fifty percent of our annual energy bill. I’m always looking for ways to reduce the workload of the oil furnace plus air conditioner to save money. I’ve installed a smart control unit to help with conserving energy when we’re not at lake cabin or sleeping. I’ve added ceiling fans to push the heat toward the floor in the Winter time plus force it up toward the ceiling during the summer. Replacing the old windows plus caulking around them helped to minimize energy waste. The last time I hired a professional Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier to come to the cabin plus maintenance the oil furnace, I asked for recommendations to further tighten up the house. She took a look at the attic plus commanded that I replace the insulation. Over the years, the insulation had certainly become compromised by moisture plus rodents. It was no longer providing an effective barrier against the weather. The Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier gave an quote on removing the old insulation plus installing new. I decided I could save some money plus handle the task myself. It was horrible. I spent thirds crawling around in the boiling, stuffy attic, pulling out damp, disgusting insulation. I was drenched with sweat the entire time. I then had to unroll plus install the new insulation. While I regretted taking on the task, I am satisfied with the energy saving results.
