Blown in insulation added to fiberglass batts

Does adding blown in insulation to fiberglass batts really help?

Yes, if the batts are low density and the blown-in is not also;

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?

It brought my heat bill down quite a bit. But I also sealed the attic before adding the blown in insulation. You might want to consider doing that before adding anything. It's very important. Lift every batt and look underneath.

Gary, excellent thread you started about fiberglass insulation. All of the links are very helpful!
