I am getting ready to insulate my unfinished attic. Do i insulate the rafters and the floor or just the floor? Some people have told me that i do not have to insulate the rafters only the floor, but much of the internet info suggests that both areas are to be insulated. Help...since i'm doing this myself, i only want to do what's necessary. thanks.

Insulate just the floor of the attic. Use a minimum R-19, though an R-25 or even R-38 would be better. Before you buy all that fiberglass, get an estimate to have cellulose blown in. Then price out the fiberglass and compare the figures. remember though, if you go with the fiberglass, you will be spending several days crawling around in your attic. If you opt for the blown in cellulose, you will spend a couple of hours watching somebody else do all the work!!

Go with blown in cellulose. It cannot be beat. It does not even itch.
