Re: attic insulation question

You don't want to seal the roof - let it breathe or it may rot.

Unvented, conditioned attics are more energy efficient and have become more popular in recent years. This Department of Energy document provides some good information along with references.

Not bringing in fresh air and not installing bathroom fans also saves energy...
Ending up with dry rot because of no ventilation will offset a lifetime of potential savings.
