Adding attic insulation to lower heating & cooling costs

The weather in my section requires some type of temperature control just about all year round. Our summers are sizzling plus humid with hot plus cold 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 regularly looking for ways to reduce the workload of the oil furnace plus air conditioner to save money. I’ve installed a smart control component to help with conserving energy when we’re not at condo or sleeping. I’ve added ceiling fans to push the heat toward the floor in the Wintertide 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 A/C corporation to come to the home plus service the oil furnace, I asked for recommendations to further tighten up the house. He took a look at the attic plus recommended that I replace the insulation. Over the years, the insulation had honestly become compromised by moisture plus rodents. It was no longer providing an effective barrier against the weather. The Heating plus A/C corporation provided an estimate 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 hours crawling around in the hot, stuffy attic, pulling out damp, disgusting insulation. I was drenched with sweat the entire time. I then had to unroll plus install the current insulation. While I regretted taking on the task, I am satisfied with the energy saving results.
