I looked up Pa codes, and found something weird. Eventhough R49 was
in the IRC, Pa said 30 was ok. I thought about it this way further,
money into insulation or money into the utilitie company's pockets.
Needless to say I invested in my home.

R-49 is not practical in an attic that will be finished. R 30 seems
to be standard in most places. If you can ft more and want to pay
thats on youbut 30 will suit most people fine especially when combined
with a radiant barrier like reflectix.

Just saying, I'm guessing, the cost of fuels will go up. Just a
guess... and with global warming causing the potential for more snow
now. Don't ask me, ask Gore why we had a threat of wet snow lately.
Having more insulation in the attic space, where able, might be a good
investment in your home.
Just what I did, not an R-expert. ;)
