Insulation in attic and knee wall

I have recently purchased a home and it is a lot cooler up stairs than it is downstairs. The insulation does not look bad in th attic or in the knee wall storage rooms that I have in a room however there is no insulation on the ceiling in any of the room. Is this common to insulate the ceiling? Will this really help keep it warmer upstairs? If so what type of insulation?

Any info or tips would be outstanding!

Where are you located?

Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
