Attic Re-insulation

I live in a year old town house. The attic is insulated with what I believe is R-19. However it gets cold at night here in NJ.
1. Does adding more insulation (bring up to R-41) make energy sense?
2. If so, what insulation type should I get?
3. Will adding more insulation for the winter cause the house to require more cooling during summer?
Thanks for your time.

1. Yes, it saves energy costs. You have to decide if it is economically justified.
2. Fiberglas and cellulose are popular and can be blown in.
3. No, because is keeps the heat out of the house in the same way it keeps the cold out in the winter.

Hope this helps.
