I'm generally pretty skeptical of big claims, but this worked well for me. The Governor's office in Colorado is offering lots of energy rebates, including 40% on attic insulation (the most important kind) thru the end of September or until the allocated funds are exhausted: http://rechargecolorado.com/. Excel is offering 20% rebates. Kelly's Insulation is offering 40% also in a new promotion. 40+20+40= 100% rebate! So I just got $1526 worth of attic insulation (according to them: 16" of fiberglass loose fill, R-40, 960 sq.ft. at $1.59/sq.ft.) for free - no out-of-pocket cost at all. Total time (from knock on the door to done) was less than an hour.
Contact http://www.kellysinsulation.com/ 1-800-544-6721, to do your home. I'm embarassed to say that mine was only R-21 or so (6" of loose cellulose) beforehand, and code now requires R-38 as I recall, and now I'm up to R-21+R-40 = R-61 which is what is recommended. Which I like! Cooler in the summer, and cheaper in the winter :)
