The first thing we did when we moved into our home in 2006 was insulate the attic and pipes in the basement. With the $1500 rebate it cost us very little and paid for itself immediately in comfort and savings. We use about 600 gallons of oil to heat our 1500 sq ft home. Not great, but not bad. The people before us were using over 1000 gallons per year. Of course that was when oil was only $1 something per gallon so I guess that's why they never felt the need to insulate. I couldn't believe it. 0 insulation. Crazy!
