A nice formaldehyde-free batt insulation I saw at West Coast Green were EcoBatts. They're not encapsulated, but not nasty like some fiberglass batts.

Another option are batts from denim. They're a little harder to cut and produce some blue dust, but something to consider.

How To Reduce Your Energy Bills / Energy Conservation Begins at Home

Imagine leaving a window open all winter long -- the heat loss, cold drafts and wasted energy! If your home has a folding attic stair, a whole house fan or AC Return, a fireplace or a clothes dryer, that may be just what is occurring in your home every day.

These often overlooked sources of energy loss and air leakage can cause heat and AC to pour out and the outside air to rush in -- costing you higher energy bills.

But what can you do about the four largest “holes” in your home -- the folding attic stair, the whole house fan or AC return, the fireplace, and the clothes dryer?

Thanks for your advice. Really useful.

Floor Heat

Despite the fact that by switching to a radiant heating system that gives an abundance of floor heat to heat up a home w/o loosing any actual heat to the ceilings or attic. However, to ensure that the heat stays inside during the winter and cool during the summers, I would suggest that you insulate in between attic columns, above crawl spaces, and inside any exterior walls.

It's alright to do the insulation by yourself, as long as you are equipped and skilled enough to do it. But there are some things which should be relegated to the experts. After all, they know which types of insulation work best with specific types of roofs.
