    Depends on the climate where you live. Cold areas require more insulation then warmer areas. But without more info this would just be a guess.

    You may be also able to get a tax break for energy savings. I would check the tax laws in your state.

    yes. The insulation is a one time cost...the money spent on more heating or cooling is month after month.

    You may get a tax break for upgrading your insulation but whoever should do it, make sure they use insulation stops. They stop the insulation from going right up to the edge of the attic because you have to let air flow outside with the vents. If you have no stops then there is no way for air to flow. This will cause condensation and will lead to a lot of problems like water leakage in your house through vents, ceiling etc. I know this because my husband is a roofer!

    More or better insulation is always a good investment.. and will make your home more comfortable as well. Spray foam insulation is the best, as it fills all the holes and crannies... but it is more expensive.
    Check with HomeAdvisor.com or AngiesList.com to contact verified insulation installers.... a reputable one should be able to give you a good basis of comparison on how each type of insulation performs and the savings you can expect over how much time.
