Adding attic insulation to lower heating & cooling costs

The weather in my area requires some type of temperature control just about all year round.

Our summers are overheated plus humid with 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 consistently looking for ways to reduce the workload of the oil furnace plus a/c to save currency. I’ve installed a smart temperature control to help with conserving energy when we’re not at home 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 aged windows plus caulking around them helped to minimize energy waste. The last time I hired a professional Heating, Ventilation & A/C corporation to come to the house plus service the oil furnace, I asked for recommendations to further tighten up the house. He took a look at the attic plus suggested that I replace the insulation. Over the years, the insulation had really become compromised by moisture plus rodents. It was no longer providing an effective barrier against the weather. The Heating, Ventilation & A/C corporation gave an estimate on removing the aged insulation plus installing new. I decided I could save some currency plus handle the job myself. It was horrible. I spent hours crawling around in the overheated, 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 job, I am gratified with the energy saving results.
