Insulation in the attic is blown in, about 6"-7" thick.
House has two sets of siding on it, double insulated,
and is covered by trees. I think I lose some through
the front door, and mabe a few windows. When it's
pushing triple digits, the A/C just can't keep up. The
old unit probably needs to be replaced (probably 15-20 YO)
but since it's working, and I don't have the coin to
replace it, well.... You know..
