You might save only 5%. You could pay a contractor $3000 to install a new one. If you have a $1500 a year heating bill, you will save $75/yr. In 40 years you will break even. You might save 10% and do it in 20. Any do it yourself insulation is a smarter bet. If you can integrate an electric water heater to supply several teenagers the numbers look much better.
