If it is less than R-30 (11 inches of fiberglass or rock wool or 8 inches of cellulose), you could probably benefit by adding more.

Even renters can do this simple DIY upgrade — just be sure your landlord is okay with a few screws in the wall.

If the air distribution is in the attic space, then consider insulating the rafters to move the distribution into the conditioned space. In finished attic rooms with or without dormer, insulate (2A) between the studs of "knee" walls, (2B) between the studs and rafters of exterior walls and roof, (2C) and ceilings with cold spaces above.

In unfinished attic spaces, insulate between and over the floor joists to seal off living spaces below.
