What is better? to add r-19 insulation to half the attic?

or to add r-13 to the entire house?I have a budget, and R-19 costs about as much for 1/2 the house than r-13 doesThis (fiberglass) would be on top of already existing R-19 blown in insulation.Where do I put my money on, since I live in Arizona (gets extremely hot!!!)


It's still Spring, that's why8 days till summer.
I think this summer is gonna be lameEveryone is basically gonna stay home cause we are all going brokeI at least got some cool family and friends to chill withJust be active, get out and playGo shoot some hoops or kick a ball aroundIf your nerdy, get ahead for next year and read all your text books:]
My summer has been AHHMAZINGParties, the zoo, hanging with friends, the beach, road-trips, driving aimlessly, the mall, and concerts/shows! Just get off your butt, out of your house and chill with some friends! It makes things more fun and memorable! Andd take pictures so you can prove your fun on MySpace, or face book :))) Good luck! ALSO! A summer job would can help to get you out there, meet new people, and earn some spending cash.
Do the whole attic in the r13 otherwise you could create airflow between the less insulated and more insulated areas pulling the heat in the house through convection currentsJust remember to use unfaced insulation when adding insulation over existing insulation otherwise you could end up trapping moisture between new and old insulation causing mold and all sorts of nasty stuff to grow You could always come back with even more unfaced insulation when you get more $.
Same hereI'm out of high school now, and there's a tradition around here called senior week where all the seniors go to Ocean City, MD for a week to party (it's totally safe and there are police everywhere)My mom wouldn't let me go, so I've been stuck at homeA lot of my friend's went, and the ones who didn't go either went somewhere else for vacation or have to workI've been out of school for about 2 weeks and it's so boringI'm going to Hershey Park tomorrow with the school marching band as a final trip, so hoepfully that'll break the boring streak and kick off my summerHere's some things I suggest: - go swimming - have a picnic or cookout with friends - water balloon fight - movie night - learn an instrument (I play piano, guitar and drums and most of my friends play an instrument and we have so much fun just getting together and jamming) - get a job (cutting grass or work at a store to save up some pocket money) - amusement parks or find some traveling carnivals/fairs that are in your area There's things to do, but you just have to look and use your resourcesGood luck and have fun ^_^
