The most important areas in the house to insulate sufficiently are usually the attic and walls. Your attic and walls will be where the vast majority of heat escapes from your house. These are the areas you should give significant consideration to. Excessive condensation on your walls can lead to really unpleasant conditions like mold and damp build up.
Condensation occurs when moisture in the air meets a cooler surface. So it can be incredibly common in bathrooms and kitchens. When a wall has insufficient insulation, its heat will not be effectively retained, and it will lose temperature quickly. If you have a wall in the kitchen or bathroom that maintains a cool temperature, and comes into contact with warm moist air regularly, this creates the perfect conditions for excessive amounts of condensation which then forms a breeding ground for mold.
Attic insulation can be especially important for your entire home's thermal efficiency. The current insulation you have in the attic may be several years or even decades old. It is likely leaking significantly more heat than a modern insulation layer would if it were replaced. If you live in a cool climate with long winters, heat retention is essential.
Many solutions that were used in the past can be commonly based around a fixed solid layer of insulation board or woven cloth. In the worst cases this can be damaged over time, cut or fitted inefficiently. The vast majority of homes with these types of limited measures will see drastic improvement from converting to solutions that incorporate foam filling or reflective insulation.
