If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

Don't put off today till tomorrow!
Use the cellulose and it'll stop air infiltration and deaden outside noise better than fiberglass.
A friend of mine had his house inspected & they saYs he only has about 2" in the attic & nothing in the walls. He asked me what should he do since he can't afford both, I told him I would ask my friends on the forum.
So what should I tell him should he do the attic or outside walls??? I don't know myself. So back to the experts.
Chuck if it was me,i'd go ahead and add it to the attic. Also would take my window casing off and stuff some fiberglass, or get some of that spray foam, and get them windows insulated. Imo that's where your gonna loose most of your heat.

I agree with the previous posts, Attic first (assuming floor is insulated or slab), but also sealing around the exterior doors and windows. My old house had single pane windows with storm windows outside. In each room, I picked one window to open and the rest got caulked shut (might label the window as an escape). It saved a whole lot of money, furnace ran probably half the time it did prior. Keep in mind each person has to think of their own safety and how to escape in the event of an emergency, so other methods should be considered, like new windows, window seal kits, or plastic over the windows.

Heat goes up faster than it goes out =1 on the attic first.

Thanks guys, He does have replacement windows so they do tilt in to clean.
