Made this its own thread, and moved it to the HVAC forum.

The attic is not supposed to be insulated throughout.

Choice of:

1. INsulate hthe attic floor with attic ventilated to the outside,

2. Insulate the rafters and sidewalls as if to make the attic into living space.
The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
