I had an HVAC company come out to quote me for more attic insulation, and they wanted about $2,200 to add 6 inches of spray foam to the entire attic. But one of the guys told me to ask my gas or electric company to do an energy audit and they might pay for it.

Gas company said no but the electric company sent a guy out and he quoted me $600. He did the energy audit and fixed a bunch of stuff for free. Then when the company came to spray the insulation, the guy only charged me $300. So I got the same thing for $300 that the HVAC company wanted $2,200 for.

Worth a shot if you're looking for more attic insulation.

Energy would bill me $2,200 for even asking.

entergy came, fricked my wife, stole my existing insulation, charged me $10k, and my bill doubled for the next 10 years.

They never asked, don’t think that’s a factor.

I don’t think that $2,200 quote was for spray foam. Probably blown fiber.
